Where to watch

Movie Info

A feature-length documentary that originally sought to follow the band and their fans throughout the world, to demonstrate how music ties us together when we can't find any other common bond. However, during the filming process in 2012, the story abruptly took a dramatic turn, bringing the band into a Kafkaesque nightmare, when lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter, 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.

  • As the Palaces Burn is a documentary on the heavy metal band Lamb of God, and obviously a must for their fans.

  • Don Argott's documentary about the heavy-metal band Lamb of God would have been a conventional rock doc if it had not been for a tragic incident at one of the band's concerts in Prague in 2010.

    Feb 28, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • [Blythe is] a performer desperate to prove his emotions are for real.

    Feb 28, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • You don't need to like Lamb of God's music - although, for the record, you should because it's awesome - to walk away from As the Palaces Burn feeling genuinely fond of the band.

    Feb 27, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's only mildly interesting unless you're one of the band's many rabidly loyal fans, especially since Argott, clearly thoroughly embedded, chooses not to dig very deep into the personalities and issues around the incident.

    Feb 27, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a weird little hybrid movie. It becomes unforgettable at just the point where you were beginning to forget it.
