On June 27, 2012, the long-running, hard-touring, and world-rewned metal band lamb of god landed in Prague for their first concert there in two years. Vocalist D. Randall Randy Blythe was looking forward to a few hours off,a rare break from the touring grind,in which to explore the elegant old city. However, a surreal scenario began to play out at the airport as Blythe was detained, arrested for manslaughter, and taken to Pankrac Prison,a torious 123-year-old institution where the Nazis' torture units had set up camp and where today hundreds of prisoners are housed in claustrophobic, sweltering, nightmare-inducing conditions.What transpired during Blythe's incarceration, trial, and eventual acquittal is a rock'n' roll road story unlike any other, one that runs the gamut from tragedy to despair to hope and finally to redemption. Blythe is a natural storyteller and his voice drips with cutting humour, endearing empathy, and soulful insight. Much more than a tour diary or a prison memoir, Dark Days is D. Randall Blythe's own story about what went down,before, during, and after,told as only he can.
D. Randall Blythe is a writer, photographer, actor, and musician best known for fronting the metal band lamb of god. He lives in Richmond, Virginia, with his wife Cindy and their cat, Salad. This is his first book.RandyBlythe.netInstagram: drandallblytheDarkDaysBook.tumblr.com
