During the recent interview with Zippo Encore Live, Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton revealed his real thoughts on the latest member of the band, Art Cruz, who is 15 years younger than every single member of the band.

As you will read the comments of Morton, transcribed by Blabbermouth, he indicated that Art Cruz’s drumming ability, curiosity, and excitement to the music makes the difference.

Here is what he told:

“Art brings just such a great energy to – well, first and foremost to the music, but also just kind of the dynamic of the group. He’s about 15 years younger than us, so that’s kind of got its own energy.

His drumming ability is pretty much limitless – he can play whatever you ask him to; he can play whatever he wants – and that’s pretty exciting, to be able to have that tool available to us.”

He continued:

“Art was certainly a professional drummer when he came into the fold, but some of the things we’re doing at the level we’re doing them at, he’s never really been, necessarily in those positions before.

So to see his enthusiasm for it, his excitement, his curiosity – his eyes and ears are open, and he’s killing it. It brings me a lot of joy. I love Art, man – I love the dude – and I’m really proud to have him in our band.”
