Lamb of God’s Mark Morton and Willie Adler on creative kinship, staying power, and trading heavyweight riffs

by GuitarDomain

2020 was poised to be a banner year for Lamb of God. The reigning thrash metal kings – particularly true now that Slayer are no longer active – had put the finishing touches on their self-titled eighth studio album, the first to feature Art Cruz in place of longtime drummer Chris Adler, and had a rigorous touring schedule, including a still-scheduled mammoth trek alongside Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames. 

Guitarist Mark Morton had been busy for the past year or so with a pair of solo releases – last year’s Anesthetic full-length and a five-song, mostly acoustic EP titled Ether, released this past January – and tour dates in support of his solo endeavors.
