Biography

Dave Lombardo (born February 16, 1965 in Havana, Cuba) 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 35 years, during which he has been involved in the production of over 40 commercial recordings spanning a number of major genres with bands such as Fantômas, Grip Inc., Testament, Apocalyptica, John Zorn, in addition to Slayer.
