LAMB OF GOD's CHRIS ADLER Reflects On His Artwork And 'Dancing With The Devil' Art Collection (Video)
June 14, 2018
LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler has just unveiled his fine art debut collection, "Dancing With The Devil". Completed with art team SceneFour, the release is a pioneering effort in the new medium of crafting visual art through drum performance.
Over the last 12 months, Adler has been creating an art collection made from rhythm. Like a painter, using brushes with oils, Adler has crafted a collection of artwork utilizing drumsticks that light to build visuals for canvas. The result is a fine art collection that brings his unique sound to sight in abstract, vivid and powerful ways.
"Dancing With The Devil" is more than a collection of art; it is a dimension of captured creativity. Each piece represents a visual of entire songs Chris chose and performed in their entirety at the SceneFour facilities. These are creative exorcisms intended to motivate and empower.
The latest trailer for "Dancing With The Devil", in which Adler reflects on his artwork and art collection — from the visuals to the dark emotions revealed throughout the process — can be seen below.
Adler has joined an extraordinary group of drummers working with art team SceneFour in the medium, including Bill Ward (BLACK SABBATH),Dave Lombardo (SLAYER),Rick Allen (DEF LEPPARD),Mike Mangini (DREAM THEATER),Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS),Mikkey Dee (MOTÖRHEAD, SCORPIONS),Nick Menza (MEGADETH) and Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT).
In addition to LAMB OF GOD, Adler has played drums with a number of metal artists, including MEGADETH, NITRO, BLOTTED SCIENCE and PROTEST THE HERO.
