Tim Lambesis of “As I Lay Dying” Arrested in Murder for Hire Plot… LOL WUT

Posted on May 7, 2013 AT 07:21pm

Strange isn’t a strong enough adjective for the madness that hit the news today. According to this article in Reuters, Tim Lambesis, Frontman for metalcore act, As I Lay Dying, has been arrested for plotting to murder his estranged wife.  While I’m not going to necessarily judge the man for his actions in contradiction to his faith… it is odd.  I mean, you’re a frontman for a metalcore band that put out albums back when metalcore was at an OBNOXIOUS, swedish melodic death metal riff stealing boom.  So they’ve gotten a buttload of success as well as a few Cornerstone Festivals under their belts…  Tim himself has even produced/managed bands and has put out a bunch of his own albums under Austrian Death Machine. So… why?

I mean, the dude couldn’t have just spent the money it took to sue for a divorce? Perhaps he could have forced the divorce to happen anyway and married someone else? Well… regardless of what I think of his music, I hope it’s all a bunch of stupidity that turns out not to be true… for his sake.
