Lamb of God have released a video for their take on Megadeth’s Wake Up Dead. Their cover was recorded remotely by Lamb of God and also features contributions from Megadeth. These include vocals/guitar from Dave Mustaine and Kiko Loureiro along with additional vocals from Dirk Verbeuren and James LoMenzo.

Mustaine says of the collaboration: “We had a blast playing with Lamb Of God on their cover of ‘Wake Up Dead’. Almost as much fun as we’re going to have playing every night on Metal Tour Of The Year. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone!”

Whilst Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton adds: “‘Wake Up Dead’ was a massively important song for me as an aspiring young guitar player. It was one of the first songs that began my lifelong love of thrash metal and helped reinforce for me that, while solos may be fun, my allegiance is to the RIFF! So you can imagine what a thrill it’s been for Lamb to cover this legendary song with Dave & the rest of the Megadeth guys. Truly an honour. We all had a lot of fun putting this together and I think you can hear that energy in the track. I hope everybody enjoys this one and we can’t wait to see y’all on The Metal Tour Of The Year.”
