Chris Adler has shed further light on the original intentions behind Lamb Of God’s latest venture.
Lamb Of God released new documentary As The Palaces Burn this month to critical acclaim, and Chris feels that, before the film’s unexpected turn due to Randy Blythe’s manslaughter trial, it stood as a piece of work that highlighted the positive power of music.
“Music in general can really bring people together,” says the drummer. “It can get past the differences we have as people, and it’s a great example of how finding things in common seems to be a better idea than just pointing out, like the news does, everything we have differences about. It’s not gonna save the world, necessarily, but it’s one way that we can show that this can really bring people together.”
Randy recently confirmed that Lamb Of God will be taking the rest of 2014 off.
“And so another album cycle comes to an end,” blogs the man via Instagram. “This has been a very eventful, at times VERY STRESSFUL, album cycle, & it’s been about three years since we started on this one in our practice space- I need a break. Tomorrow is a 19 hour flight back to the USA, & then another one home to RVA, & except for two festival shows in 2014, I will not be thinking about lamb of god, touring, playing heavy metal, writing new lamb of god material- NONE OF THAT STUFF- AT ALL- for a good long while.
“Time to do other things for a bit, & let my brain regroup, & be a somewhat normal human being. This has been a pretty wild ride though, & to end it in AFRICA of all places still amazes the crap outta me. So thanks Johannesburg for an awesome end to the Resolution tour cycle, & to all you other bands, hear this: the game has been stepped up, & the ante has risen. You are not a REAL G until you come to South Africa & your fans throw one of THESE to you on stage- a warthog skull. Takes the cake for the strangest thing throw at me on stage ever, & I’ve had some weird shit thrown at me- I named him Jeff. Jeff, the South African warthog. Top that, y’all. Don’t front like your ballin’ if you ain’t rockin’ that wart hog shizzy.”
