Lamb of God announced their new album will be self-titled.
Started under the name Burn the Priest in the winter of 1994, then changed their name to Lamb of God in April of 1999. The name change was a result of the band members thinking the old name was too immature, and it was taking them in the wrong direction as far as fans were concerned.
They released a 6-song EP, distributed only to record labels in late 1999/early 2000, possibly still under the Burn the Priest moniker.
On 26 January, 2014 the band announced that they would take a period of hiatus from the musical scene, after completing appearances at a handful of festivals. As of 2015, they were again active.
In 2018, they released a covers album, "Legion: XX", under their original name, Burn the Priest.
