There have been rumors circulating that Chris Adler of Lamb Of God contributed drums to the upcoming Slipknot record.

Yesterday he offered a pretty ambiguous response to the claim saying:

“Right now I think silence is golden. Right now I don’t think those guys need me, or need me talking about it. You know, I listened to it and I thought it sounded a little bit like me, too. At the moment, I just don’t recall doing it. I’m getting texts and emails and phone calls about it. For the moment, I don’t know anything about it.”

However, today the drummer has flat out denied his involvement with the Iowans offering:

“I’ve received even more questions about my involvement with Slipknot since the ABC interview I did recently. The interview was originally about my new whiskey bar, but of course took a turn into the gossip of the day. As I told her, I’ve had and have nothing to do with it. I’m flattered with the association and comparisons, but I have no involvement in their record.”

So it’s official, Christ Adler is not the drumming with Slipknot, who it is has still not been announced. When more information becomes available we’ll be sure to let you know.
