Burn the Priest (Lamb of God) Release Cover of The Accused “Inherit the Earth,” Covers Album Release Planned for May
Lamb of God have been dropping hints for a few days now involving Burn the Priest, the name of their band before they changed it to the Papyrus-adorned moniker we currently know them as in 1999. First there was a mysterious video, and then they shared what appeared to be a Burn the Priest show flyer.
Now we finally know where this is all going: the band just released a cover version The Accused’s “Inherit the Earth” under the Burn the Priest moniker, and the sleuths at Metal Injection have uncovered an Amazon listing for a Burn the Priest album called Legion: XX which contains ten mostly punk and hardcore covers. That would explain why this very same group of five men decided to resuscitate the “Burn the Priest” name: it makes sense in the context of going back to their punk roots.
