Background Information

In the May 2006 issue interview with Revolver Magazine about the album reissue, Guitarist Mark Morton and Vocalist Randy Blythe talked about the meanings of the song on the album and information about them.


A Warning- Blythe: "A Warning" is one of my favorite tracks on that record. People forget now, but it was a little harder to be a fucking weirdo back then, You know what I mean? Now it's not so much of a big deal- you see frat boys with Slayer shirts or Slipknot shirts on, or whatever. But that song was about people looking at you as if you were a freak, metalhead, a punk rocker-whatever- and them being like, "Oh, my god, what a fucking loser freak!" and you just saying, "Yes, I am, so screw you."


The Black Dahlia- Blythe: "It seems kind of typical for guys in bands to have a serial-killer fascination. I don't-I just thought that particular Black Dahlia murder case [The still-unsolved 1947 slaying of aspiring actress Beth Short] was interesting, and it kind of panders to my film noir, romantic side. I romanticize about that time a lot in my head, and I took that whole story and put it into lyrics, so I could sit around and wear a fedora and smoke unfiltered cigarettes to it later. Call women "Dames" and stuff, you know? [laughs]."


The Subtle Arts of Murder and Persuasion- Morton: "One of my favorites on the record, and it's still in the set to this day. You can really hear my nerves in cutting the guitar intro to that song- So much so I think we actually had to fade it up a little bit. [laughs] it was a real new piece of me, and it's pretty difficult to play. It's imperfect but it came out really cool."


Pariah- Blythe: "Pariah", was written about a certain individual who used to live in my beloved city, the former capital of the Confederacy, who I did not get along with too well. He was a fucking heroin junkie and was just an awful person. I had a couple of unpleasant run-ins with him and he was just a real Shitbag, basically. I despised him so much that I wrote a song about him."


O.D.H.G.A.B.F.E.: This song was about a time when Lamb of god was stuck out in the rain and was forced to find cover from it. A while afterwards police from the San Diego Police Department came by and gave them a hard time and ended up kicking Blythe while he was on the ground laughing at them. Finally the Police took all of them to jail and they were released afterwards. Blythe said the song was about Police brutality and he "thanks the San Diego police department" for that. the song meaning explains the names at the end such as Kent State (see Kent State Shootings),Tianamen (see Tianamen Square protests), and Waco (see Waco Siege).

Notes

  • Track 10 (O.D.H.G.A.B.F.E.) is an acronym for "Officer Dick Head Gets a Black Fucking Eye."
  • The song "Black Label" is featured in Tony Hawk's Underground 2.
  • There is no separate guitarist named "Duane". Duane is Mark Morton's middle name that was written in the line-up in the Metal Blade Records / Prosthetic release of "New American Gospel".
  • The song “Letter to the Unborn” contains no lyrics to read in the book of the CD. The song indeed has lyrics but according to Blythe, the song is very personal concerning the death of his daughter with his ex-wife. They were written before she was born. Because of all of this, he didn’t want the lyrics to be reprinted or read.
  • The song "Terror and Hubris in the House of Frank Pollard" features guest vocals by Steve Austin of the band Today Is The Day. Steve, along side Chris Adler, helped produce New American Gospel.

His new book, "American Gospel," hits on a current political issue: The degree to which religion is, or ought to be, involved in our political system.
The author makes a point of declaring that every American is free to believe as he or she wishes with respect to religion and that the business of government is separate from those private beliefs.
Perhaps the most memorable line Meacham offers is this one: "The great good news about America — the American gospel, if you will — is that religion shapes the life of the nation without strangling it." In other words, a belief in religion is common to Americans but it is never coerced.
