‘I’m Much More Than Just A Metal Drummer’

Wikidrummers recently conducted an interview with former SLAYER and current PHILM drummer Dave Lombardo.

On how he first got into drumming:

Lombardo: “I very young and I had a very strong passion for rhythm and music. And I couldn’t resist the urge to listen and play drums, and, let’s say, get a pair of drumsticks and just play everywhere. So I’d loved drumming for as long as I remember.”

On whether he is open to playing other styles of music:

Lombardo: “Yeah, I’m very open to many different styles of music. Although people know me more from a band I played in called SLAYER, but I’m much more than just a metal drummer. I listen to many different styles of music. I don’t have many favorite bands, but I have favorite genres. So everything from industrial and electronica to ambient. Everything from MINISTRY, SKINNY PUPPY [and] NINE INCH NAILS to Brian Eno. You know, ambient music… music for airports.”

On producing the first two PHILM albums:

Lombardo: “I produced the two first ones, and I’ve agreed to let Ross Robinson [KORN, DEFTONES, SEPULTURA] produce the third. It’s been a dream of mine to be a producer. I love working with other musicians, especially your own musicians. And I believe I’ve learned from some of the best — from Rick Rubin to Mike Patton to John Zorn. Those producers have taught me a lot.”

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).
