From seemingly out of nowhere, Lamb of God have returned through reviving the band name Burn The Priest and recording a covers album in celebration of their 20th anniversary. After a series of teasing clips and pictures and speculation in comment sections across the internet veering completely wide of the mark the band unleashed their first track from the record, a cover of The Accused's Inherit The Earth announcing that Legion: XX will be released 18th May via Nuclear Blast.

For a short, snappy, history lesson - the origins of Lamb of God began as Burn The Priest with Mark Morton, John Campbell and Chris Adler being there from the start in 1994 before Randy Blythe and Willie Adler joined a few months later. Their development grew in to Lamb of God as we know them today but the band have always pointed towards the importance of their origin as Mark Morton expands on, "As our sound and songs developed, so did our goals... we began playing basement parties and warehouse shows and in doing so, we realized that the energy we were creating was transferable. The shows we played in those squats and warehouses [in Philadelphia] and the people we met there are forever embedded in our collective consciousness and the DNA of our band."
