A two disc set, the first disc includes the widely praised film, which the New York Daily News calls, “a riveting documentary” and the Huffington Post calls, “fascinating viewing”. The second disc features over two hours of additional, unreleased content – “making of” as well as footage not included in the final cut, plus exclusive material from the original plan for the film, which was to be about LAMB OF GOD’s music’s effect on fans in other cultures.
As the Palaces Burn was released theatrically on February 27, 2014. Originally intending to follow the heavy metal band LAMB OF GOD throughout the world to demonstrate music’s potential to tie culturally diverse fans together, filming for As the Palaces Burn abruptly took a dramatic turn when lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter, and blamed for the death of one of their young fans in the Czech Republic.” What followed was a heart-wrenching courtroom drama that left fans, friends, and curious onlookers around the world on the edge of their seats.
See what top press outlets had to say about AS THE PALACES BURN:
“As the Palaces Burn is not your typical rock documentary… As the Palaces Burn emerges as a gripping tale of a band whose existence was threatened by the very image they worked so hard to project.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“In a movie with so many admirable qualities, the finest is that, however much group is covered, we never lose sight of the fact that a 19-year-old fan went to a concert one night in 2010 and ended up losing his life. For that reason and more, this is an unmissable film.” – Kerrang
“… gripping… a fascinating, Kafka-esque portrayal of every musician’s worst nightmare.” – Guitar World Magazine
“‘As the Palaces Burn’ is truly unique. The film’s honesty fuels the viewing experience, documenting the abandonment of its own original concept without bailing on the fans.” – Loudwire.com
“a unique rock documentary” – The Village Voice
