LAMB OF GOD Drummer Hopes To 'Guide Musicians Through The Ins And Outs Of The Industry' With His Newly Launched Management Company

LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler has officially announced the launch of Kintsugi Management, a talent management agency. His first client is the acclaimed U.K. death metal band DYSCARNATE.

Adler stated: "The Kintsugi mission is to create and redefine modern pathways to achievement. I have the capabilities, connections and knowledge to guide musicians through the ins and outs of the industry."

After recovering from a motorcycle accident followed by a large tour across the U.S., Adler was inspired to use his 25 years of industry knowledge to help up-and-coming bands and musicians.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery using lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver or platinum. When asked about the symbolism, Adler said: "We all are finding our way back from difficult journeys. Those of us that choose to pick ourselves back up and fight the good fight have already taken the next step to a greater self. That is Kintsugi."

The Kintsugi team consists of professionals from across the world that share Adler's passion for music and that have met his high standards.

Adler spoke about Kintsugi's formation during a recent appearance on the "Unstoppable Recording Machine" podcast. He said: "I'm not very good at sitting around and doing nothing, so if [LAMB OF GOD] is not on tour, if we're not writing, we're not recording, I'm still playing a lot of drums, going to the gym a lot, but I kind of find a lot of downtime, and I don't wanna allow myself that and get in trouble or something. So I've been thinking about it for a while and just kind of waiting for the right band to come around."

Adler said that he was blown away by DYSCARNATE's latest album, 2017's "With All Their Might". "I have not had goosebumps like when I listen to their newest record since I heard 'Symbolic' [from DEATH], and every time I listen to it, it's still just goosebumps over and over," he said.

"I really wanna help these guys because they are incredible and they're still friends," Adler explained. "And I see 'em playing to 12 people for a bag of chips, and it's, like, man, that shit will burn you out so fast, and there's so much talent in this band that I wanna kind of help ensure that they have the ability to have somebody else doing the fighting while they continue to be friends as long as possible and keep writing stuff."

Adler was forced to sit out some of LAMB OF GOD's shows this summer because he was undergoing physical and occupational therapy for injuries he sustained in the aforementioned motorcycle accident.

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.
