Virginia metal band Lamb of God have hit the studio to record their sixth studio album and follow up to 2009's 'Wrath'. Through the wonders of modern technology, the band is offering fans the chance to watch drummer Chris Adler record his drum tracks live.

Lamb of God entered the studio recently with producer Josh Wilbur (Avenged Sevenfold) to record their next record. Drummer Chris Adler sat down with to let them now how the sessions have been going:

"I’m excited. When you are in the middle of it, writing, and having to perform it over and over again, you kind of get lost in it. But when I get to sit back and we have this hard disc — it’s pretty exciting stuff. I’m excited that at our spot in time, and at our age, that we’re still doing something that is different and better than anything we’ve done in the past."

For the next week the death metal favorites are giving fans a rare peek into the monotony that is the recording process. Recording an album can be great fun, it can also be tedious, repetetive, and annoying as hell (especially when tracking drums). You can join in on all of that by keeping it locked in to Lamb of God's Twitter and Facebook for updates and watching the Ustream feed as Adler beats the skins.

The still untitled album has tentative release date for early 2012.
