Lamb Of God Front Man Randy Blythe Releases Short Film On His Time In Prague
As we all know, Randy Blythe made news headlines quite often this past year as he was on trial for manslaughter in Prague for the unfortunate death of a fan that took place at a Lamb Of God Show there years before. He even spent some time in a Czech prison. He was eventually acquitted of all charges and released to go back to the states. Blythe has produced a short film about Prague and it has just gone public. Read on for more info.
One thing that I admired about Randy during this whole debacle was how positive, humble and composed he remained the entire time. He even released a statement on how well he was treated in the prison. Most people would not even see such a situation in an uplifting light. I give him credit for staying so strong all that time.
Another positive thing that arose from this tragedy was Randy's almost five minute-long video he has just released that highlights part of his Prague journey.
The film (which is featured on Randy's Randonesia blog) is titled Prague: The Devil Is The Details and was filmed and edited by Randy along with music he composed to coincide with its images.
...I did not know what was going to happen to me, only that I felt I was doing the right thing by being there. Working in a creative capacity during the trial helped me to remain calm — it is what I know how to do, so I wanted to share it with people.
...Note: the Devil plays an important part in Czech fairytales, and marionettes are a bit of Czech folk culture I came to love while I was there — the marionette hangs in my study now.
The Devil is different in Czech fairy tales though, to my understanding — the puppet is representative of me, the way I viewed myself, the way I was viewed by society at different times — all sorts of things. It is not representative of evil — just wanted to clarify that.
