Re: Chris Adler
Chris plays like no other metal drummer out there right now. How many other metal drummers actually ride on a splash cymbal, or find a groove like he does with double-bass? He certainly isn't the fastest, or technically advanced drummer in the world, but for not having much music theory knowledge or formal lessons, his playing in Lamb of God fits perfectly for what they do and they wouldn't be the same with ANY other drummer, period.
That's why he gets the well-deserved praise he gets so much now, for his creativity and uniqueness that makes him stand out from the hundreds of other metal drummers out there.
