The Lamb of God Retreat (Yes, THAT Lamb of God)

Normally, the notion of a “Lamb of God retreat” would conjure up visions of a very austere weekend with a bunch of hard prayin’ Jesuits who insist that you take a vow of silence.  Not this time.  In fact, this is just the opposite.

This summer, the Full Moon Resort in New York state will be the site of the first-ever LoG retreat featuring the just-aquitted Randy Blythe and his bandmates.  From the website:

The weeklong retreat, which is limited to 170 fans, will feature activities aimed at musicians and non-musicians alike. The curriculum for the retreat was created by the band and will include guitar and drum clinics with Willie Adler, Mark Morton and Chris Adler; group instrument lessons; songwriting sessions and competitions; nightly jam sessions and band Q&A sessions.
 
Additionally, guests of the retreat will get to see the premiere of the Lamb of God feature film scheduled for a fall theatrical release and be privy to an intimate Lamb Of God concert on the final night of the retreat.
 
Other features of the retreat include:
 
. Longtime band album designer Ken Adams will discuss the creation of Lamb of God albums and T-shirt designs.

. Band tour manager and sound man Brian Griffin will instruct fans on the art of mixing a live metal show.
 
Non-musical activities will include:
 
. Motorcycle excursions with bassist John Campbell.

. A seminar on primitive fire building by Randy Blythe.

. Casino night.
 
All of the fans will enjoy all of the amenities available at the Full Moon Resort.
