Born in 1976, in Richmond, Virginia, Willie Adler is best known as the rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for metal titans, Lamb Of God. At the age of just eleven, Willie was already banging is head to the beat of legendary metal bands like Metallica, and it wasnt before long that he was thrashing away on his first guitar. As the years progressed, he developed a very distinctive and undeniably, killer style. His use of odd and discordant chords, combined with his unique sense of timing, rhythm, and super-human stretch, has made Willie one of the most popular metal guitarists on the planet, and one of the hardest to imitate.
