Update: Lamb of God just released a music video for this track, check it out here.

According to a new interview with Rolling Stone, "512" was Blythe's prison cell number while he was in Pankrác Prison in the Czech Republic after being accused of manslaughter for the death of a fan at a 2011 concert. Blythe was eventually found not guilty, and the band's new album, VII: Sturm und Drang, features lyrics Blythe wrote while incarcerated. Blythe went on to talk about how his time in the prison informed the lyrics for this track:

Much of Blythe's time in lockup – which he also chronicled in his upcoming memoir Dark Days – was spent in a dark, unsettling basement dungeon. The guards placed the singer there, he says, so they could monitor him for depression. "They stick you in the worst, dimmest, darkest place in the prison," he says. "I couldn't even see the sun to tell what part of the day it was. It was just steadily lessening levels of gloom."

Those thoughts, he says, inspired the "512" lyrics, "The time is slipping by no peace in sight/But the teeth of time still hold their bite." It's a metaphor for the one hour a day he was able to see a clock.

A music video was shot for the song, directed by Jorge Torres-Torres and will be available soon. VII: Sturm und Drang is out July 24th. You can pre-order the CD on Amazon for $10.96.
