Biography

Chris Adler (born November 23, 1972) is an American drummer, best known as a member of the metal band Lamb of God. He also plays the piano, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and saxophone. He is the older brother to bandmate Willie Adler, and is also a vegetarian along with bandmate John Campbell. Chris attended Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria, Virginia, graduating in 1990. As Lamb of God gained more recognition throughout the years, Adler’s reputation as a proficient drummer in the metal scene grew as well. Typically, he writes his drum parts after other band members have brought him some riffs and ideas. As seen on the Killadelphia DVD, Adler tries to create unique music while not taking anything away from the riffs or the song itself. Utilizing strong symmetry in his drumming and being highly skilled in his double bass work, Adler also creates unique sticking patterns to go along with his unique double bass playing style. One of the main reasons for the unique sticking style is that he is a left-handed drummer on a right-handed set. Adler has been influenced by drummers of the metal world including Lars Ulrich, Shannon Larkin, Dave Lombardo, and Vinnie Paul. As well as notable jazz drummers such as Bill Bruford, Terry Bozzio and Billy Cobham.
