The original Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo was recently interviewed by the official YouTube channel of ‘The Pit’ last week and talked about his new band named Satanic Planet as well as playing with the Misfits and Mike Patton.

As you might already follow Dave’s career, he co-founded a dark musical soundscape collaboration that features Luke Henshaw, Justin Pearson, Lucien Greaves, and Dave Lombardo himself. The band is about to release their self-titled debut album and it’s now available for pre-order. The CD edition is available for the price of $13 and the Vinyl Edition is for $25 via the official website of Three One G.

In his latest ever interview with The Pit, Slayer icon was asked that there are some people that write iconic drum parts just like the double-bass part in ‘Angle of Death’ and what makes a drum riff iconic. According to Lombardo, there are a lot of ingredients and things that make up a drum part to be iconic.

Here is what he said:

“It needs an iconic song behind it. You can have some drum parts but if you don’t have that song to support it then it just becomes another sound, another rhythm.

I think the big part is definitely the band, and the musicians, and the time. The time that that piece of music came out. Some people like more the Slayer style when I was in the band, whereas some people like the other.

It’s just when you discovered the band, if you discovered it during when I was in the band, of course, you are going to prefer those albums because that style touched your heart.

There are a lot of ingredients, a lot of things that make up a drum part to be iconic – where you heard it, how you felt if it moved you, and everything. And the musicians in the song.”
