A stroll along Venice Beach, California with his children and dog led to Dave Lombardo stopping by producer Ross Robinson’s nearby studio and lay down some drum tracks on the currently recording Sepultura album. Just a lazy afternoon when you’re one of metal’s most famous drummers really.
Lombardo contacted Robinson who then invited him to the studio and much to the excitement of everyone, recorded a track with the Brazillian metallers that will appear on the upcoming release.
The news was posted by guitarist Andreas Kisser on his studio diary that has been featured in Brazillian newspaper Diario de Pernambuco since the band entered the studio a few months ago. “We just have to thank Mr. Lombardo and his family for this opportunity. Thank you Dave, we will never forget this, it’s a real honor to have you on the album!”
Vocalist Derrick Green provided the accompanying photo of the legendary former Slayer drummer jamming with current Sepultura drummer Eloy Casagrande.
As we’ve reported earlier, this will be the first time Robinson has worked with them since producing the 1996 release Roots and the first time the band have recorded outside of their home base in Brazil since Against which came out in 1998.
The as yet untitled album will be the bands thirteenth studio release and the seventh with vocalist Green, who replaced founding member Max Cavalera. Both vocalists are now equal in recordings for the band. The album will be released through Nuclear Blast Records.
