Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler says that he is impressed with the band’s writing for their 8th studio album.
The follow up to their LP, 2012’s Resolution, is expected during 2015 according to frontman Randy Blythe.
Says Adler, speaking to SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal show: “It’s great. I guess the thing that I was overwhelmed with was the idea of us taking the year off of 2014 and then have us come together basically around now and start putting things together.
“But, as usual, everybody is a little antsy and wanting to jam, and it wasn’t, like, ‘Oh, hey, Willie has an idea and Mark has this kinda cool solo thing he wants to add on top of it.’ Both of these guys came in with about 50 different song ideas.
“So what’s been great is just going through all these ideas, which are all really good, and being able to say, ‘Okay, we have this much material. Let’s pick the top 10 or top 15 or 20, and just keep working on that. Then they get upset, because number 42 had their favourite part. So, okay, grab that favourite part from 42 and let’s make song six way better. So it’s been that kind of a process as we go along.”
Lamb Of God will be returning to the UK to play this year’s Download Festival on the 14th of June.
