Dave Lombardo va lansa un album solo intitulat "Tires Of Percussion"
09 Martie 2023 de Cristi Nedelcu
Dupa ani de zile in care a fost membru in trupe de metal, legendarul tobosar Dave Lombardo si-a anuntat lansarea albumului de debut intitulat "Rites Of Percussion".
Lansarea va avea loc pe 5 mai 2023. Primul single de pe acest album se intituleaza „Journey Of The Host” si se poate asculta mai jos in articol.
„The songs on this album invoke imagery," a declarat Lombardo. "I write from wherever my mind travels. I write how I think. I want the songs to conjure emotion. There are no lyrics, but there are many levels of intensity. In a way, I think I've found a hidden talent. That is, taking mental images and putting those images to music”.
Lombardo a declarat de asemenea ca de fapt vocalistul Mike Patton l-a "impins" cu adevarat si l-a inspirat sa scoata acest album.
„[Mike] Patton originally gave me the idea as far back as 1998," a explicat Lombardo. "He introduced me to Tito Puente's Top Percussion album. I was already familiar with Tito and was a bit shocked that Patton was so musically diverse, and that he surrounded himself with musicians of the same mindset. That inspired me.I have had ideas that I've recorded on cassette over the years, but Patton kept insisting that I had to do a 'drum album.' So, the idea behind the album is years in the making. I just had to find the right time—for me—to do it."
Bineinteles, perioada de pandemie a fost momentul perfect pentru Lombardo pentru a porni intr-o calatorie solo, avand mai mult timp liber la dispozitie pentru a compune si inregistra. Rites Of Percussion a fost inregistrat la domiciliul lui Lombardo si la Studio 606 intre 2020 si 2021.
„When the pandemic hit, I thought, 'Well, I can't tour now,' I immediately started working on the record. It was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had. I had my studio, all my drums. Nothing was in storage for once! My home became a place where I could be free and creative.On the one hand, the touring part of my livelihood had been taken away, but on the other, I finally had the time to educate myself on different software and recording techniques. It was a very educational and gratifying experience.”
Rites Of Percussion a fost mixat de fiul lui Lombardo, David A. Lombardo, masterizat de John Golden la Golden Mastering si art work-ul a fost realizat de Luke Insect. Precomenzile sunt disponibile aici.
