Dave Lombardo, former drummer for thrash legends Slayer will be featured on the upcoming album by latino thrashers Sepultura.
In a fortunate turn of events, it seems Lombardo was in the right place at the right time. He was on holiday with his kids and dog, at the beach near to where sound guru Ross Robinson (Machine Head, Slipknot, Korn, Limp Bizkit) was recording Sepultura. After letting Robinson know he was in the area the producer extraordinaire suggested he swing by to do some guesting for the new record!
Andreas Kisser, Sepultura guitarist said: “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 tribal drum sets on the living room, facing each other and when the mics were ready 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!“
The as of yet untitled album is scheduled for an autumn 2013 release.
