Firstborne Unexpectedly Drop Two Singles


Epic thrash supergroup Firstborne came sprinting out of the gate earlier this week with the release of two catchy, bangover-worthy singles, “Bad Things” and “One Of A Kind.”

Featuring former Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler, bassist James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth, ex-Black Label Society), guitarist Myrone, and singer Girish Pradhan (Girish and the Chronicles), the bands got enough classic metal in one place to turn your hair gray and blast your eardrums.

Adler said the band enjoys a level of creative freedom that makes being a part of it almost feel like a video game cheat code, explaining that the band intends to release new music at a steady clip. 

“We’ve made good use of the time. For the next year plus, we will be releasing a song a month, starting here and now with a one-two-punch. I’m thrilled to be in a creative partnership that can do just about anything. Feels like playing in ‘God Mode’ on Guitar / Band Hero. It’s a passion project, and it’s fun for us to share. Dig in. Or don’t. See you next month!” 

Firstborne’s self-titled debut EP came out in 2020 and was Adler’s first release since leaving Megadeth and Lamb of God. It represented several years of material and writing.

“Bad Things” has a classic, nostalgic, ’80’s vibe that immediately becomes an earworm. “One Of A Kind” is more trippy, alternative, and proggy with seriously epic vocals. Both tracks. Both songs are different but classically crushing, getting listeners excited for what’s going to come next. Both songs were self produced by the band with mixing / mastering by longtime collaborator Machine. 

Expect new music, videos, merch and more from Firstborne throughout the next year. You can stream and download their discography on Bandcamp here to get familiar with their new and former material.
