Lamb of God cover Megadeth, with Megadeth

Bloodstock headliners Lamb of God have released a cover of Megadeth’s ‘Wake Up Dead’ featuring Megadeth themselves, to commemorate the second leg of both bands The Metal Tour of the Year which kicks off next week in North America.

The track which you can watch below is a great take on a true classic from the iconic 1986 album ‘Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying’

Mustaine lent his signature vocal to the track, with lead guitar work on the various solos by Lamb Of God’s own Mark Morton, as well as Megadeth’s Mustaine and Kiko Loureiro. The recording also includes vocal contributions from Megadeth members James LoMenzo, Dirk Verbeuren, and Kiko Loureiro.

Lamb Of God are confirmed to headline the UK's Bloodstock Festival this summer, taking place August 11-14, 2022 in Catton Park.

Then, after a journey around Europe, the group's twice’ delayed State Of Unrest' UK headline trek takes place in December, along with thrash legends Kreator as special guests, and Bloodstock heroes Thy Art Is Murder and Gatecreeper rounding out the bill.

Dates are as follows:

Tue 13th Dec - LONDON O2 Academy Brixton
Wed 14th Dec - GLASGOW O2 Academy
Thu 15th Dec - BIRMINGHAM O2 Academy
Fri 16th Dec - BRISTOL O2 Academy
Sun 18th Dec - MANCHESTER Academy
