Randy Blythe, vocalist for Lamb Of God, has kept his promise that he would return to Prague in the Czech Republic to stand trial on manslaughter charges stemming from the death of 19-year old fan Daniel Nosek, who died attending a LoG show in 2010.
According to Czech news site Novinky, Blythe’s first sentence to the court was, “I keep my word. I promised that [I would] come, and I [did].” Blythe has a team of several defense lawyers.

Update: Although the Lamb Of God/Dethklok/Gojira tour is still cancelled, the band WILL be performing at Knotfest. They are also looking towards a Oct. 26th start date for a full US tour. Randy will also be making a public statement in the next week.
According to a very simple post from the official Lamb Of God twitter, Randy Blythe is out of Czech Republic prison and is coming home. The Richmond Times Dispatch explains further that, “…court upheld a lower court decision that had rejected a request by prosecutors to keep Blythe in custody.” Blythe had paid somewhere around $400,000 in bail but was still being kept in prison as prosecutors argued that if he left the country he might never return.
Blythe was released from prison yesterday and left the country today. He is expected to land in New York this afternoon. However, Loudwire makes a good point, Randy is still not done with this situation. He is out on bail but he will most likely have to return to Prague for the trial at some later date.
