Following a string of online rumors regarding Chris Adler's supposed involvement with Slipknot, Lamb of God drummer was asked for comment, giving a negatory, yet somewhat mysterious answer.
"Right now I think silence is golden," he told ABC News Radio. "Right now I don't think those guys need me, or need me talking about it."
Responding to online comments that drumming on the latest 'Knot track "The Negative One" sound eerily similar to his style, Adler agreed to an extent, saying, "You know, I listened to it and I thought it sounded a little bit like me, too."
Finally giving the closest thing to a negative answer, the skinsman noted, "At the moment, I just don't recall doing it. I'm getting texts and emails and phone calls about it. [But] for the moment, I don't know anything about it."
To give you some solid info, Slipknot have presented the cover for "The Devil in I," their first official single off the upcoming album. As singer Corey Taylor pointed out, "The Negative One" wasn't the single track, but merely the record's first sample.
As Taylor further noted, the lead single is due in "a few weeks" and is "completely different" from "The Negative One." "It's more melodic, but it's dark, it's powerful, man," the vocalist stated. "It's something different. People are gonna lose their minds when they hear that."
Back to the rumor domain, stories have surfaced claiming that "The Negative One" is actually dedicated to the band's former drummer Joey Jordison. More on that here.
