Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe can finally breathe a big sigh of relief.

An appeals court in the Czech Republic has upheld the headbanger's acquittal earlier this year in the death of a fan at the heavy metal band's 2010 concert in Prague.

Blythe, 42, was accused of pushing 19-year-old Daniel Nosek off the stage during the show, causing a fatal head injury. The Resolution crooner ended up spending five weeks in jail over the incident before he was released.

He then kept a promise to return for the trial, which ended in March when a Municipal Court found him innocent of manslaughter charges.

Blythe could not be reached for comment. But Lamb of God confirmed the verdict on its Twitter page.

"Great news! The Czech courts have thrown out the appeal against #RandyBlythe's 'not guilty' verdict!," read the tweet.

If convicted, Blythe could have faced up to five years in a Czech prison.
