The saga of Lamb of God's Randy Blythe continues with the singer's being indicted on manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic in connection with the death of a fan at a 2010 concert. The frontman of the Virginia-based metal band spent five weeks in a Czech prison earlier this year, accused of pushing a fan from the stage during a performance. That fan died from a head injury. Blythe has denied the charges. In a statement Monday, Lamb of God's manager, Larry Mazer, said, "Obviously, we intend to fight vigorously against these charges as we feel that in no way did Randy intend to cause bodily harm on the young fan who subsequently died from injuries sustained at the show.
