DAVE LOMVARDO Talks To About New Projects, Influences, Slayer and More

Nikola Savić of has recently conducted an interview with legendary drummer Dave Lombardo (Philm, Fantomas, Grip Inc., ex-Slayer). Few excerpts from the interview can be read below.

The new Philm album is completed and ready for release. Compared to the debut Harmonic, where do the new songs stand? From the song that has been premiered in Bill Ward’s “Rock 50” radio show, the sound is more heavy but less experimental at the same time, I would say.

“Yes, you are right. We took that approach with this album, instead of what we did last time. This time around what we did was focus on constructing solid songs, rather than experimenting with, I think, improvisations. Our songs, we create our music, we write our music out of improvisations. So, our music is a lot of times very unexpecting, how it happens.”


This year marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Grip Inc’s album “Incorporated.” Have you thought about bringing the band back to life?

“Yes, I have. I’ve been talking to Waldemar and we’ve been getting some ideas together on possibly putting out some new music, some recording we never released. Like maybe 4-5 songs and putting that out this year. And who knows, maybe we’ll take out the band on tour and do some shows. I think that would be a lot of fun.”


It’s been almost a year since your departure from Slayer. How do you look on the whole thing from this point of time?

“Oh, when I look back? There were a lot of good times, but now I look at the band and it’s sad. The band should be, now at this time in their career, should be… It’s a good thing, it should be celebrated. But now, with these problems – it just doesn’t look good.”
