The year: 2000. The scenery: A warehouse in the gritty, industrial enclave of Commerce city, Colorado . . . Among the factories, refineries, and stockyards on the down-side of Denver, Black Lamb took shape, from the ashes of, or as a respite from, some of the best metal, punk and rock & roll bands in the area . . .And now with a handful of self-releases under its belt, Black Lamb continues to be lauded by fans and peers alike.
