We suspected it wouldn’t take long for Dave Lombardo to get back behind the drums following his unceremonious departure from Slayer earlier this year. His next stop was to sit in with the Brazilian metal outfit Sepultura during the recording of their forthcoming album. Producer Ross Robinson invited the thrash legend to share drum duties with the band’s drummer Eloy Casagrande.
“He came and it was so nice, so special, so awesome,” Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser commented. “He is one of the nicest guys in [the] 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 mikes 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!”
