LAMB OF GOD Song '512' Featured In Trailer For Horror-Themed Game Show 'Hellevator'

LAMB OF GOD‘s song “512” is featured in the trailer for the new horror-themed game show “Hellevator”. Check it out below.

“Hellevator” is produced by Matador and Blumhouse Productions in association with Lionsgate Television. Executive producers are Jason Blum (“Paranormal Activity”, “The Purge”, “Sinister” and “Insidious”), who won a 2014 Emmy Award for “The Normal Heart”, and was nominated for an Academy Award for “Whiplash”; and Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin of Matador.

The show, which premiered Wednesday night on the Game Show Network, is fairly simple in its premise: Three people an episode go into an amusement park-like haunted house and compete in progressively harder challenges while being taunted by the Twisted Twins, a set of Canadian filmmaker sisters who control the action and continuously threaten the contestants with “the labyrinth,” which is each episode’s final challenge. For this, the contestants can win up to $50,000, which is shared amongst the “surviving” players at the end of the episode.

The “512” title is a reference to LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe‘s cell number in Prague, Czech Republic’s Pankrác Prison, where he spent over a month in 2012 after being accused of shoving a local fan off the stage during LAMB OF GOD‘s May 2010 concert in the city. The man, who is said to have stormed the stage three times during the show, reportedly suffered a brain hemorrhage that resulted in his death nearly a month later. Blythe was eventually acquitted of all charges after a panel of Czech judges ruled that concert promoters — and not Blythe — were largely to blame for the fan’s death.

The vocalist wrote the track about how his experience behind bars changed him. He told RollingStone.com: “You cannot have the same mentality as the normal guy living on the streets in prison. You undergo a radical mental and emotional shift when you go into prison.”

He continued: “There are aspects of your personality that you could cultivate in prison that are beneficial to your survival that would be seen as psychosis or extreme paranoia. You have to be ready for violence at any time. Anyone who is 100 percent honest in prison will get taken advantage of, maybe by other prisoners, maybe by guards. For me, being in prison was a lot of figuring out what I could get away with, how I could work outside any set of rules in order to remain as comfortable as I could. You’re cultivating your psyche in your deceit. In prison, everyone is listening all the time, and if they hear you say something that they can take, they might internalize it and be, like, ‘This guy is talking to someone,’ and he’ll wind up dead.”

According to the vocalist, he spent much of his time in a dark, basement dungeon so that the guards could monitor him for depression. “I couldn’t even see the sun to tell what part of day it was,” he said. “It was just steadily lessening levels of gloom.”
