Dave Lombardo 'Blown Away' Playing With Suicidal Tendencies

Suicidal Tendencies

(Metal Hammer) Dave Lombardo says he's been "blown away" playing with Suicidal Tendencies. The former Slayer drummer first hooked up with Mike Muir and Suicidal Tendencies for their live shows earlier this year, and played on their recently released 12th album World Gone Mad.

Lombardo has also been behind the kit for Misfits' classic-era reunion shows. And the sticksman says the whole experience has been a special time in his career.

He tells NorthJersey.com: "I'm a big fan of Suicidal Tendencies and it's an honor for me to play with singer Mike Muir and the band. When I first received a call from a mutual friend saying that Mike was interested in me playing some shows, I said, 'absolutely.'"

Lombardo says he was given a free reign to do what he wanted on World Gone Mad and adds: "They wanted me to be myself and their music is very drum friendly with some amazing structuring and vocals and lyrics. They gave me the freedom to do what I wanted and I gave the songs what I felt they needed."

He adds: "Suicidal's music brings back some really good memories. I remember driving the van on one of our early Slayer tours and me and Jeff Hanneman would listen to their first record and switch off singing the lyrics." Read more here.
