It’s not like he ever went away, but 2016 is turning out to be a hell of a comeback year for Dave Lombardo. The former Slayer drummer is not only filling in for the Misfits, but he’s also currently in Suicidal Tendencies. And maybe he’s not done yet. When the legendary drummer enters the studio, you can bet it’s going to draw attention, and on September 9th, he posted a picture to his Facebook talking about his “Killer recording session at Perks Place West Productions Recording Studio.” While it is great that he’s active and making new material, it is unknown as to what this could refer to. Could a Misfits reunion album be in the near future? Might there be something new happening with Dead Cross? At the moment your guess is as good as ours.
It could also possibly have something to do with the fact that, on the 13th, he posted the artwork for “LOMBARDO”, a self-titled compilation of his drum solos and artwork. It is a reasonable assumption that, for the compilation, he could be working on exclusive solos for this piece. Hell, this could even be a curve ball with some brand new Slayer material on the horizon, however unlikely that is (editors note: not likely). What we do know is that we will know nothing until more information is presented to us. Whatever it is that Dave Lombardo is up to, it is bound to worth listening to, and as soon as we know more about it, so will you.
