Messed Up Metal Midweek Malarkey

Not a Mensa member - Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying
Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying

Today has been a weird one.  Take your pick from these bizarre Metal-related stories:

Wednesday morning began with the news that the frontman of As I Lay Dying and Austrian Death Machine, Tim Lambesis, had been arrested by police in Oceanside, California for allegedly trying to hire somebody to kill his estranged wife.  An already ill-advised gambit made all the more problematic by the fact that Lambesis’ intended hitman was an undercover cop.

Face? Meet palm.

As the day ends, Metal Hammer reports that former Obituary guitarist Allen West has been arrested for his part in running a meth lab.

See what I mean about this being a weird day?  It’s as if the darkest hopes and dreams of the Blabbermouth comment section have run amok and been uncoupled from the ID’s of entitled suburban comment thread trolls.

SMH, as the young people are saying…
