Lamb Of God Parts Ways With Chris Adler And Taps Dave Lombardo

Lamb Of God just released an official statement on the band's Facebook site that they parted ways with long-time drummer Chris Adler, after rumours emerged that Adler will not only guest on Megadeth's new studio album, but will also stay as a permanent member of the thrash metal legend.

Explains frontman Randy Blythe:

"I've seen it coming over the last weeks and when I asked Chris about all the rumours, he just told me 'C'mon you would do it too, if you were in my position, right?'. So next thing I did was call Dave [Lombardo, former Slayer drummer] and ask him if he wants to step in. And guess what he said 'Yes, why not!' without any hesitation or pause of reflection!"

I also heard that Chris has converted to Catholicism in respect to MegaDaves' wishes (although Ellefson is a Lutheran). With Adler having a lot of control over the business end of LOG, this does not bode well. Rumors are flying around of a reissuing of their Burn the Priest record retitled Bless the Priest.
