David Randall Blythe is the vocalist of the band Lamb of God, and he was born on February 21, 1971.


Randy Blythe joined Lamb of God, formerly known as Burn the Priest, in late 1996. The band wanted to retire from its original instrumental sound. His vocal style consists of deep ‘growled’ vocals, shrill screams, and recently baritone singing. He occasionally uses short quips of prose to outline the band’s ‘mission statement.’

Randy was featured in a handful of his peers’ DVDs, such as Killswitch Engage’s ‘(Set This) World Ablaze’ and Machine Head’s ‘Elegies’. Randy was also featured in Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey, and Melissa Cross’s ‘The Zen of Screaming.’Randy is considered by many to be the best metal lead screamer to date.

Randy has a small tattoo on his hip that resembles a penis and two testicles. According to Randy in Killadelphia, it was the result of him trying to tattoo the Misfits logo on himself while drunk and passing out before he could finish it.

He also has a tattoo on his left forearm reading COBHC standing for “Children Of Bodom Hate Crew” which is the name used by the band Children of Bodom for themselves, their crew, and all of their fans.
