PHILM, the three piece powerhouse featuring Dave Lombardo behind the kit, recently revealed that they will be releasing their second full-length release, “Fire From The Evening Sun,” on September 16th. What can we expect? Dave previously said this, “I believe this album has a daring, callous temperament about it that really sums up our mindset right now. No improvising, no fluff. It’s heavy and in your face from start to finish.” So that’s exciting right?!
What can we NOT expect? Dave ever returning to Slayer. The drum icon was recently interviewed by Metal Hammer about the upcoming PHILM release, and of course the Slayer drama was brought up at the end of the chat. Slayer split with Dave back in 2013, and the end result was a ton of back and forth about money, respect and more. So where does it stand today? To put it all to rest, at the end of the interview Dave answered a Slayer reunion question with “No. That’s it. I’m done now. I’ve got lots of other things on my plate and I now know that, when it comes to money, you don’t have any friends in this business. I won’t ever be going back.”
