Former SLAYER and current PHILM drummer Dave Lombardo recently spoke to Louder Noise about some of his favorite double-bass drummers: Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER, THE WINERY DOGS), Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT) and Ginger Baker (CREAM). Check out the clip below.
Lombardo was effectively fired from SLAYER after sitting out the band’s Australian tour in February/March 2013 due to a contract dispute with the other members of the group. He has since been replaced by Paul Bostaph, who was previously SLAYER’s drummer from 1992 until 2001 and recorded four albums with the band.
PHILM released its sophomore album, “Fire From The Evening Sun”, on September 16, 2014 (one day earlier internationally) via UDR. The band’s lineup is completed by guitarist/vocalist Gerry Paul Nestler (CIVIL DEFIANCE), and bassist Francisco “Pancho” Eduardo Tomaselli (WAR).
