Chris Adler, the drummer for Lamb of God and good pal of Gun Shy Assassin, has been named the #1 drummer in the “Metal” category in Modern Drummer magazine’s 2011 Readers’ Poll, according to Blabbermouth. Not only is he the best drummer, but he’s a fucking rad dude.
The Readers’ Poll results appear in the July 2011 issue of the magazine, available on newsstands now. Who finished in #2? Joey Jordison of Slipknot, followed at #3 by Sevendust’s Morgan Rose, Fear Factory and former Strapping Young Lad drummer Gene Hoglan at #4, and finishing at #5 is Mastodon’s kitman, Brann Dailor.
Recently, I had the chance to head down to a recording studio located somewhere in New York City, where I got to watch Chris Adler track drums for a track slated for the forthcoming Lamb of God record. Adler was working in the studio with Josh Wilbur, the producer who helmed the band’s previous studio offering, 2009’s Wrath. You can read all about that here.
