The Press Release:
LAMB OF GOD follows 2020’s No. 1 Hard Rock Album with a vicious new testament. Riding high on a creative renaissance saluted by the likes of Rolling Stone and NME, the Grammy-nominated goliath returns with the gloriously unhinged Omens, produced by longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (Korn, Megadeth).
There is news from the Lamb Of God side of the fence regarding the role of drummer. Take a look at this grab from the bands Official Facebook Page.
“Dear Lamb of God fans,
We returned last week from a great European festival run and our final tour with Slayer in North America. We are excited to keep the momentum going and dive into the next record.
We’d like to officially welcome Art Cruz, who has been playing drums with us on tour for the last year, as the new drummer of Lamb of God. Art will be joining us in the studio as we begin pre-production and recording of a new album.
We’re very proud of everything this band has accomplished over the last two decades. We would like to thank Chris Adler for his contributions over the years and wish him the best in his future endeavors.
John, Mark, Randy & Willie”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It was recently reported that Adler was doing the drumming for the Heavy Metal supergroup HAIL! who were set to perform in Russia for a brief tour. At the time of this announcement there has NOT been any kind of statement from Adler about his departure from the band. I’ve not witnessed Art in the lineup yet but I am sure that he has the chops to propel a band like LOG forward on the live stage. I will sure miss Chris though since his style was such a unique and tactical one. As news comes to light about this development I will look to keep on top of it all.
