Dave Lombardo


Dave Lombardo is a three time nominated, two time Grammy award winning Cuban American drummer, deemed one of the most significant drummers of our time. Lombardo is most widely known as an aggressive and exceptionally skilled heavy metal drummer, but over time he has proven that his unique gift far surpasses the confines of being labeled. His use of the drums have been called “astonishingly innovative” and earned him the title “The Godfather of Double Bass”. Over his career, he has had a significant influence on the metal scene and has inspired many modern metal drummers, particularly within both death metal and thrash metal. As an original & founding member of Slayer, Lombardo has performed with Slayer on seven albums, including their groundbreaking 1986 release Reign In Blood and their 2006 release Christ Illusion, for which he received critical praise. Lombardo’s music career has spanned more than 30 years, during which he has been involved in the production of over 30 commercial recordings spanning a number of major genres with bands such as Fantômas, Grip Inc., Testament, Apocalyptica, John Zorn, in addition to Slayer. Lombardo’s most recent endeavors have found him in a variety of compelling adventures. Within the past two years, he has recorded the drum tracks for various television shows and films, launched a solo project titled ‘The Repercussion of Dave Lombardo’ that has taken him around the world performing to numerous sold-out venues, created an art collection called ‘Rhythm Mysterium’ that has been shown in Los Angeles, New York City, Sydney and Melbourne Australia, in addition to unveiling an extraordinary visual and audio experience with his First Edition Book, ‘LOMBARDO’. Not one for downtime, as of February 2016, Lombardo also joined forces with legendary Mike Muir and his cultish band Suicidal Tendencies. It was also announced in August 2016 that Lombardo was chosen to perform with horror punk icons, The Misfits, for their highly anticipated reunion shows. Lombardo is clearly showing no signs of slowing down. With the underground rumblings of more surprises on the way, 2017 promises to be one of his most provocative and inspiring years to date.
