Chris Adler promised a big announcement today, and he has delivered. The Lamb Of God drummer has teamed up with glass-shattering vocalist, Jim Gillette, and guitar virtuoso, Michael Angelo Batio, to bring back Nitro! The trio is currently writing new material, and is scheduled to enter the studio next month with GRAMMY-winning producer, Josh Wilbur, to start recording their new record that’s coming in the Spring of 2017!
Here’s what Chris Adler had to say on the news: “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.”
Michael Angelo Batio said this, “I can’t wait to get onstage with these guys! Inspirational is an understatement.”
Jim Gillette added, “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!”
