Much of the fever over Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe's arrest over manslaughter in the case of a fan injured at a LOG show in 20102, has died down, for the moment, since he is back in the country and preparing to tour. Drummer Chris Adler recently spoke out about the day that Blythe was taken into custody after being removed from a plane in the Czech Republic this past summer. It sounds terrifying, like something out of a movie.

"So we walk in this room and there's 10 guys that look like they're ready for the apocalypse. Scary, scary dudes with black ski masks on, huge machine guns, full body armor, guns strapped to thighs, calves and chests, and mace out. This is where it gets very scary, and we realized it was something far more than what someone had in their bag. The plainclothes officer explained to us in broken English that they were investigating a homicide. Even when they said that, of course it became much more serious than someone pissing in public, but still, we'd been flying around the world for the last five-and-a-half weeks, maybe something happened at one of these festivals and they're talking to all of the bands, or someone we know might be in trouble – we never thought they were investigating us.

"Then they hand us all a piece of paper that explains in broken English about the situation that happened in 2010. They said they needed us all for interrogation, but they're taking Randy with us now. That's when it hit us. No one had heard anything about this, it was very very scary to be involved in, and we realized with the SWAT team standing around us that there was nothing we could do about it." Yikes. That sounds like a nightmare. [Metal Insider]
