Best News Ever: Lamb of God’s Chris Adler is Playing in Nitro


Yesterday, Chris Adler teased a “really big” announcement regarding a new project.

Today, that “really big” announcement has been made… and “really big” is an understatement.

Here’s the official press release:

It’s official… NITRO has reunited!

Joining with founding members: legendary guitar virtuoso, MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO, and glass-shattering vocalist, JIM GILLETTE, is one of today’s most respected and revered metal drummer’s, CHRIS ADLER (Lamb of God).

“I’m not sure who keeps giving my phone number to the most talented musicians on the planet but, I couldn’t be more thrilled! I used to wonder what a metal band would sound like with all the cheat codes unlocked and well, I don’t wonder about that anymore. I’m blown away by the modern sound and groove in the material. The chaos has been harnessed and it’s incredibly heavy.” ADLER said.

States BATIO: “I can’t wait to get onstage with these guys! Inspirational is an understatement.”

“I’m honored to be surrounded by such insanely talented musicians. I mean, Michael and Chris are the best of the best. So yeah, it’s very exciting, humbling and even a little intimidating. To be honest, I’m less intimidated when I get in the ring with a 300-pound monster that wants to tear my head off!” added GILLETTE.

NITRO is currently writing and is scheduled to start recording next month with GRAMMY-winning producer, JOSH WILBUR (Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Megadeth, Hatebreed and many more). An anticipated release is Spring of 2017 with a world tour to follow.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!!! Yesterday, I said that if Adler was playing with David DeFeis, the news would make my life… but I was wrong, ’cause this news makes my life. Nitro sounds nothing like anything with which Adler has previously been involved. We can only hope they hook him up with the stylist to match.
