PHOTOS: LAMB OF GOD AND THE ACACIA STRAIN AT THE TROCADERO, PHILADELPHIA, JANUARY 26, 2012
Seeing a huge band in a small venue before their new album touring cycle kicks off is the absolute best. Just look at the above photograph of Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe crowd-surfing at the Troc in Philly on January 26th; that kind of intense band-to-audience bond would never happen if the band were playing the size venue they’re now capable of filling. MS photographer Mariel “Tormentia” Pietrykoski captured all the energy on film when Lamb of God rocked Philadelphia’s Trocadero along with The Acacia Strain on a quick run of small venues during the release week of LoG’s new album Resolution last month. Check out those pics after the break, and also be sure not to miss Vince’s live review of the NYC show and Sammy’s official writeup of the album.
