Me and a mate are gonna swing by london at the end of the Unholy tour to see them again .
Both Slayer and LOG were very very tight in Manc. Bodom were a bit sloppy but the other two were relatively tight, I don't like In Flames much and they were playing when I met LOG anyway so I'm not totally sure how well their set went. The sound was muddy as hell for Thine Eyes Bleed but they sounded pretty decent.

But back to Chris Adler, very good drummer with a good groove and a very modest guy as well.

Chris is definitely a great drummer, not amazing, but great nonetheless..... Joey Jordison on the other hand is given more credit than deserved, I'm not saying he is bad (although I don't like him), but his drumming on most of their cds is basic (straight double bass, triplets, and the occasional blast beat)...... I got the drummer magazine with him in it and took the music downstairs (to my drums) and tried and had a rough (I eventually got it) on the other hand i can listen to slipknot and get it first try. idk that is just my opinion

Sorry, a bit off-topic here but does anyone from NZ or anywhere for that matter know if LoG are going to be coming to NZ while they are in Australia?

I kinda look up to Chris Adler as he didnt start drummin til around the age of 17 (which i did),and while practisin had to work full time still (like me :P) and now i believe es an amazing drummer. He has the ability to go at blinding speeds with both hands and feets, but unlike a large amount of metal drummers he chooses not to do constant 32nds,but puts it to musical use. The main reason i started listening to LOG was his drumming and there now one of mi ave bands. I think hes a very talented guy,easily on parr (in my opinion better) than jordison

Don't think so. Have a look on their tour dates on their website. I thought they did Oz before Europe?

To be honest, i wasnt overjoyed with the new album. In regards to drums and guitars, it was gnarly, great ideas all the way through. But as far as vocal arrangements were concerned it was very similar, i think along with the vocal 'rhythm' on some tracks, very samey or maybe it's just me.

Chris Adler in my opinion is by far one of the best drummers in the world. He has an amazing ability to lash out rythyms that, although complicated, dont fly over your head and make it impossible to find a beat. I hate those drummer who just for the sake of showing off talent make incredibly complicated (and honestly, kinda stupid) rythyms.

TopCat - did you happen to see the DVD that came with the special edition CD? It is very cool to watch and it may hold the answer to why the vocals sound the way they do. Machine(the producer) had a huge influence on the vocals on this album. It actually kinda makes you appreciate what he made Randy do for the album. I like Sacrament a lot but Ashes is the sh*t!!!! Sacrament seemed a little too produced for me but I still love it! If you are a fan I know you would love the DVD. Have a great holiday!!!!!

Damn, i just found out something weird!

Chris Adler was born in 1972, and according to this page (http://www.meinlcymbals.com/adler/), he started drumming in 1994 (he was 22!!!)

can this be true?

Well, it's just that he's definitely the special one. There's something about his way of playing. A lot of people like LoG mostly because of their drumming. It's just that he makes the music interesting. And he perfectly knows where to add this and where to add that to make the stuff sound great. He's got a feeling of what he does.

Yes, he is meinl endorser, but he uses the flanger cymbal as and add on.

Meinl allow him to do this under the condition that he has no affiliation with them.

like Neil Peart using wuhan chinas years back.

I think Adler uses a Lang flanger now anyway....

I disagree with that. Chris Adler's style is unique to metal i dont know where you pulled that. Please introduce me to a metal band with similar drumming, because iv never heard one.

Did you see that Chris won best metal drummer in Modern Drummer for his performance on Sacrament?

Very well deserved. There are a lot of metal drummers out there that are faster and have more "talent", but I do not think there is one who has his style.

I love his groove. There hasn't been groove like this in metal since Vinnie Paul.

Hello guys, i have a question for all of you, i hope you could help me..
At 2003 hellfest Chris plays with Zildjian cymbal set, i guess its avedis or smth.. so my queestion is:
WHAT RIDE DID HE USE THERE ?
and if someone knows his full cymbal set for that concert..
Or maybe can say some other ride cymbals like he's playing there, because i need concrete ping, fast ride an bell patterns, so you know what i mean, every note must sound clearly for me..
thanx in advance.

p.s. a custom ping ride ?

"Chris Adler uses Saturn Series Mapex drums,12 inch Mapex Black Panther Birdseye-Maple snare, Gibraltar hardware, Aquarian drumheads, Axis Pedals and Meinl Percussion cymbals. He also designed his own 24" Meinl MB20 signature pure metal ride cymbal, as well as his own 'Chris Adler' Pro-Mark drum sticks.

Chris no longer uses a Paiste Flanger Bell. Meinl made Chris a custom "Distortion splash" and now uses that in place of the Paiste."

There we go. I saw Lamb of God on the 7th along with Chimaira and Machine head, itwas amazing. I saw Chris after but didn't get to speak, he was playing really tightly. He still has the problem of not being able to hear the snare in some fills though, but ah well.

I hate his drum sound. His snare sounds like a toy and his kicks are totally triggered and fake-sounding.

Lamb of God reminds me of the easy-guitar version of Slayer. Some of the guitar parts sound like a 14 year old wrote them. A band like Strapping Young Lad with Gene Hoglan on drums or Mastodon with Brann Dailor leaves them in the dust.

Frankly, I think that both he and Bittner are way overrated. The little kids who buy their records are the same ones that vote 40 times in the MD poll.

I beg to differ. Adler is a very creative drummer. Go pick up the latest DRUM and check out some of his drum parts. Go play those drum parts at their proper tempos and tell me he is overrated. I do not think he is the best drummer by any means but he plays beautifully for the music and for a guy who has only played for 11 years...he aint that bad!! I guess I am one of those 35 year old "little" kids who voted for him too.

I have to give the guy credit when it's due. He did start at a very late age.

I saw them live on Thursday and he uses no triggers, they were all miked up and I couldn't believe it myself. His snare gives a great attacking sound IMO.

And Lamb of gods guitar riffs are really hard compared to Slayer, I play guitar myself, and Slayers riffs have nothing on Lamb of God in terms of intricacy. Slayers riffs do have some fast picking and at most times are awesome, but LOG have much more intricate Lt. hand work, I've never even bothered learning their riffs.

Firstly about your guitar comment, thats just plain and simply wrong. Either you have no idea about metal or you havnt listened to the band properly.

Secondly that comment (totally triggered and fake-sounding) is also just wrong. Where do you get this stuff? If you are referring to recording quality, LOGs early recordings arnt the best of quality, but ashes of the wake and sacrament are brilliant, both production and skill wise.

Check him ou on youtube:
Now youve got something to die for
Hourglass

Your opinion on his drum sound is fair enough, but i think you need to give the band some more listening to before you make comments like that.
