LAMB OF GOD: Making Of 'Hit The Wall'

April 20, 2010

Grammy-nominated Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD recently created an exclusive song for the upcoming blockbuster title Iron Man 2: The Videogame. The all-new song, "Hit the Wall", serves as the perfect complement to the nonstop super-powered action of the game, which heads to consoles and handheld systems everywhere in April. The game is based on the cinematic universe featured in Marvel Studios' "Iron Man 2", in theaters end of April.

Commented frontman Randy Blythe: "Working on a piece of music specifically for the Iron Man 2 video game was a new challenge for us.

"A few of us are real game and comic fans, so the partnership with Sega [Iron Man publisher] has been really exciting.

"We can't wait to play the game and hear our music as Iron Man kicks ass."

"The music of LAMB OF GOD definitely evokes the intensity of Iron Man action, and we are very excited to have them working with us for the game," said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, Sega of America.

LAMB OF GOD was nominated in two categories — "Best Live Band" and "Best Drummer" — at the second annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which was held on Thursday, April 8 at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles. The show will be televised on VH1 Classic on Saturday, May 22.

LAMB OF GOD received a second Grammy Award nomination in the "Best Metal Performance" category — for the track "Set to Fail" from its latest album, "Wrath", which came out last year on Epic Records.

The band was previously nominated in the "Best Metal Performance" category for the song "Redneck" from LAMB OF GOD's 2006 album "Sacrament".
