Personal information

Born on: 26.01.1975

Willie Adler is one of the two guitarists in the heavy metal band Lamb of God. He is the younger brother of bandmate Chris Adler.

Willie joined Lamb of God after the first guitarist, Abe Spear, left the band. Self-taught, Willie is well-known for his unconventional style of playing, which includes odd chord shapes, unique timing patterns, odd rhythms, and high usage of his fretting hand's pinky finger. He plays mostly the jagged staccato riffs in Lamb of God's songs, while Mark Morton plays more of the groove-oriented rhythms and solos. Willie is described by bassist John Campbell as a "good time guitar player."

Willie is a primary songwriter in Lamb of God. His songs include "Black Label," "11th Hour," "Blood Junkie," "Hourglass," "Blood of the Scribe," "Beating on Death's Door," "Ashes of the Wake," and "Again We Rise."
