As I Lay Dying’s vocalist Tim Lambesis’ side project Schwarzenator

schwanzenatorI’ll be baccck!! As I Lay Dying‘s vocalist Tim Lambesis teams up with Korn’s guitarist Shane Gibson and created their Arnold Schwarzenegger inspired side project Schwarzenator. Tim Lambesis compared Schwarzenegger to metal and states:

He’s the embodiment of everything that’s stereotypical in metal. He’s massive. He blows things up. He’s the guy who kills 22 people in the final scenes of his movies. [Metal] bands that are serious write lyrics about that. At first, I thought it’d be confusing to the audience, because death-metal bands are living their own action-movie fantasy, but apparently people saw it as lighthearted. [When I got started,] I wrote down just off the top of my head – I’m not kidding – eight albums’ worth of material.

You can check the whole interview here and also check out the band’s music on their myspace page.

Schwarzenator is not to be confused with the other Arnold Schwarzenegger inspired side project, Austrian Death Machine. Here’s another Austrian sample.
