Dave Lombardo, former drummer for thrash legends SLAYER, will be featured on the upcoming album by Brazilian-American thrashers SEPULTURA. Lombardo was having some quality-time with his kids and dog at the beach near the studio where SEPULTURA is recording, when sound guru Ross Robinson (MACHINE HEAD, SLIPKNOT, KORN, FEAR FACTORY) asked him if he wanted to guest on the recording.
Commented Kisser: “He came and it was so nice, so special, so awesome! He is one of the nicest guys in business and he enjoyed the idea a lot. Ross and Mike prepared two drum sets on the living room, facing each other, no cymbals, just tribal drums! When the mics were all ready and running Eloy and Dave started playing and the magic was on; so great! The part they recorded will be a special part on the middle of one of the songs. It came out crazy!”
