Wow! Chris Adler has revealed to Banger TV that while he’s on the road with Lamb Of God, Soilwork‘s Dirk Verbeuren will be behind the kit for Megadeth! Here’s how this came about: “We tried as much as we could with all the promoters and all the festivals to have us coincide and play on the same day. I’ve done double duty with Lamb and Megadeth across the U.K. and just done five shows with them along this tour that we’re currently on right now, because we were able to collide and make those things happen. As we go in different reactions and play different things, Megadeth has a drummer to be able to play those shows. Dave asked me… He said, ‘As we’re doing this, and if you’re not able to be there… I understand you wanna fulfill your commitment with LAMB OF GOD. And we’re planning on going over to Europe while Lamb Of God is still touring. Help me find… Who would you want to drum for us?’ And I said, ‘First of all, the drum tech you currently have, Tony, who was the drummer for Dimmu Borgir and Angelcorpse, he’s an amazing drummer, so you have someone on staff that can easily do this.’ But then he asked, ‘Well, if there was someone out there that you would personally recommend, personality-wise and playing-wise?’ I said I consider Dirk probably one of the top three drummers in the world, and Dirk just began the job today.”
Hell yes! Dirk is an absolute machine, and will absolutely kill it with Megadeth! He starts this gig today, so stay tuned for footage of him with the heavy metal legends coming soon! For now, enjoy amazing footage of Dirk showcasing his skills below!
