Ex-Slayer and current Philm and Fantômas drummer Dave Lombardo says you shouldn’t get the next Slayer record.
He tells this site it’s because the new material sounds like the rest of Slayer’s previous output.
“Do I feel the same about the material? [That] it’s the best ever? That’s pretty much a very self-absorbed comment to say about your music,” Lombardo said, of a quote from Kerry King that the material was Slayer’s strongest.
“I, quite honestly, don’t have an opinion about the music. What I do know is that we’ve been working on those same songs that they’re recording right now, I’ve worked on those songs since 2011, with Kerry. So those songs are not new. And all they’re doing is replacing my drums; that’s all they’re doing. They’re replacing my drums with the other drummer [Paul Bostaph], his playing.
“I mean, I have all the tracks, I have all the songs. It’s typical Slayer. If you wanna listen to this album, you might as well just pick up the last album. It’s nothing new.”
