American death metal legends Lamb of God have teamed up with their pale Paul Waggoner, guitarist of Between The Buried and Me and owner/operator of Charlotte, N.C. coffee roasters Nightflyer Roastworks for a new single-source, El Salvador blend they are calling, Memento Mori.
Lamb of God, like many of us, are kind of java freaks. They scour the landscape for bold roasts while on the road and even have an espresso machine on their bus. The band’s guitarist Willie Adler is also an avid home roaster, so a partnership with Nightflyer Roastworks seems like a natural fit.
Earlier this year Lamb of God released their self-titled album on Nuclear Blast. The album debuted at No. 15 on the Billboard 200, No. 2 on both the Current Album Sales and Top Rock Albums charts, and No. 1 on the Hard Rock Albums charts, and has received generally positive reviews.
