CHRIS ADLER: Getting The Call From DAVE MUSTAINE To Play With MEGADETH Changed My Life

Former LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler says that getting the call to play with one of his favorite bands, MEGADETH, was a life-changing experience. Adler played drums on MEGADETH's latest album, 2016 "Dystopia", and took part in most of the band's live shows in support of the CD between January and May of that year. On those shows in late 2015 and early 2016 where Adler was unable to perform with MEGADETH, he was temporarily replaced by Tony Laureano (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, NILE, ANGELCORPSE), the veteran extreme-metal skinsman who had worked as the band's drum tech since 2011. Since May 2016, MEGADETH has utilized the services of Dirk Verbeuren, the Belgian-born-and-now-Los-Angeles-based drummer who had previously played with SOILWORK for more than a decade.

Chris Adler Says Lamb of God Was “Toxic,” Goal of Firstborne “Is to Have Fun”

Former Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler and guitar hero Myrone were our guests on a recent episode of The MetalSucks Quarantinecast to talk about their new project, Firstborne. Chris and Myrone told us how they first came to collaborate with each other and how they hooked up with vocalist Girish Pradan (Girish and The Chronicles) and bassist James Lomenzo (ex-Megadeth). At one point, Chris relayed the story of how he first discovered Myrone’s music (right here on MetalSucks!), how that dovetailed with his split from Lamb of God — a relationship he said had turned “toxic” — and how the primary objective of Firstborne is to have fun, something that was lacking in his later years with Lamb.
