He uses Axis Pedals...bit on the expensive side but are decent for that kind of music...also try the gear section in the future

Default Chris Adler

Ive been listening to Lamb of God for a while now and I think that even though Chris isnt the fastest drummer, he is awsome at complimenting the guitars. Too many drummers just show off at how fast they can play. I really like Avenged Sevenfold but sometimes the drums dominate the whole song.

Does anyone have the new Sacrament album? Ive been listening to it for a few weeks. The drumming on it is amazinig, I especially like Blacken the Cursed Sun. He plays in a very fluid way that doesnt take over the song but really makes it sound "together". I really like the singers voice for Lamb of God too. Especially on Ashes of the Wake and Sacrament.

Oh yeah....I have Sacrament! Great album and great work from Adler. I personaly like his playing on the Ashes Of The Awake album better but he does some great stuff on this album too. Dont get me wrong I love both albums but Ashes just seemed more like a raw metal album than this one. Sacrament is a bit more produced than Ashes but Randy's vocals on Sacrament are killer. It is the best Randy has ever sounded and I think that is part of the reason for the more polished sound on this album. You should watch the DVD that comes with the limited edition CD, it is really cool to see how the album came together. Chris Adler is one of the most creative metal drummers in years!! LOG!

I agree. For your Malice is a great song. I also listen to Pathetic a lot. The intro is awsome.

I enjoy their last two CDs very much. However, I do think that they would be much better, and much more popular if they had even just a decent singer.

Their singer is probably one of the worst singers I have ever heard. I still like them though because of the great music. Great guitar sound, innovative riffs, and the drumming is spectacular.

I can understand you having a hard time getting over the vocals. I really can....especially if you don't listen to extremely heavy music regularly. Personally, I like Randy's voice, and they would not be Lamb Of God (to me)without his vocals. For the long time fan of this band his voice is an important instrument in the music. Popularity has never been the goal of this band, it just happened for them which is such a beautilful way for it to happen. You are right about the riffs and the drumming......spectacular. The Adler brothers are true talent!!

I agree. Randys voice is a key part to LOG (I like the vocals in Blacken the Cursed Sun a lot). When I first heard the voice I instantly turned off the track I was listening to (I think it was Black Label), but then I heard about Chris Adlers drumming and as I listened to his unique style I grew to like Randys voice. I cant imagine the band without him now.

Ahh yes, good ol' Chris Adler. He's my favorite metal drummer at the moment. I recently watched the DVD of the making of Sacrament. I am very impressed by his work ethic and how he loves metal. His colorful use of cymbals and double bass patterns make his drumming sound excellent.

How could you compare chris with joey jordison? Chris is by far more creative!

Anyway... what kind of mapex kit is chris playing? Is it an Orion or a saturn?
and anyone know the sizes he's playing?

The sizes can be had from the Meinl webpage - it shows the sizes of the drums as well as cymbals, from memory.

As far as type I would guess an Orion but I could be wrong.

What I'd suggest is using more your own sound but in his style of setup - I'm soon to be running 10, 12, 14 and 16" toms in the same setup style as Chris (i.e. 2 up, 2 down) and my cymbals are setup in a similar fashion (i.e. I keep an 8" splash by my right hand side china and a bell to my left) but my setup is similarly based on that of Danny Carey and Tomas Haake, or at least it's trying to be!

He recorded the Sacrament album on a Mapex Saturn (Emerald Stardust Finish) and is touring with a Mapex Saturn (Transparent Cherry Finish). I do not know what sizes though.

That's exactly what I'm trying to do just wanted to get an idea of what he's actually using

I read somewhere on here it's Saturns that he uses. You can get head diams from Meinl and I suppose you'll have to guess depths from pictures since I can't find any info anywhere!

EDIT: Haha yea, it says above your post Saturns

Default Chris Adler's drumheads

Just out of curiosity does anyone know what type of batter heads Adler is using in the clip from the MD festival? They appear to have a flat grey finish to them, just curious.

What I know is he's used Aquarian Hi-energy on snare, clear Response ll on toms (this is why it has an glossy look) and Force l on bass drums.

i wouldn't say they're warmer, a little different feel. i think its the type of coating. i have emporers on my kit right now since they didn't have response 2s. i think the coating may take a few more overtones away but i honestly couldn't tell a huge difference.

One thing that's worth noting is that he has 2 14" crashes and a 12" Paiste flanger bell, or at least he did on the Sacrament DVD, he may have since replaced with with the custom distortion splash thing.

I think I'm gonna get one of those filter chinas, the look and sound smart. I'm worried about my addiction to china cymbals...

His floor toms don't sound like crap, but his second rack tom sounded well out of tune at Unholy Alliance in Manchester last night. and I told him when I met him at the Congregation meet and greet. Absolutely brilliant, well pleased to have met one of my favourite bands.

When i saw LoG last tuesday, his drums sounded bloody awful. I'm not sure how much of it was down the PA but you could not hear any snare hit lighter than the backbeat. And the floor toms were incredibly loud in comparison. they were miss-matched and very clicky.

Tuesday would've been Glasgow right?

I dunno mate, the sound at M.E.N. was incredible, the bass drum was a bit over the top tho, very very loud. A few of my mates were near the front for Slayer and one of em said it made his chest hurt when he was breathing cos the kick was so loud.

Still, it was bloody smart getting to go back stage and meet Chris, John Campbell, Willie Adler and Randy. Can't wait for em to tour again now. I've seen them twice now and both times they've been absolutely fantastic, one of my best mates saw em for the first time last night and when he walked away from the front at the end he just had a look of sheer astonishment on his face. They're truly the best live band I've ever seen.

Not tuesday, my bad, I meant monday - at the CIA in Cardiff. It was all messed up there though, sound was awful and I think there were some monitor issues, because there were quite a few mistakes..or nuances, rather.

Slayer were actually quieter than the other bands. Ya rly.

Me and a mate are gonna swing by london at the end of the Unholy tour to see them again .
