Lamb Of God's Mark Morton on guitar, groove and blues: "One of the first things I decide with a riff is where the snare sits"

Lamb Of God's Mark Morton is a busy man; moving straight from a debut solo album and EP to a new album with the band. We sat down with him to talk about his blues rock guitar approach that manifests differently in both projects and why snare placement in crucial to Lamb Of God's riffs.  

Lamb Of God's self-titled new album is out 19 June via Nuclear Blast. For more info check out lamb-of-god.com (opens in new tab)
