DJ Spooky vs Dave Lombardo

Drums of Death

Thirsty Ear Recordings

Released: 19th September 2005 | 16 track pop album
Two years in the making 'Drums of Death' has finally emerged. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid has teamed up with Dave Lombardo (drummer for Slayer) to see what one of the world's best DJs could do with beats supplied by the best thrash metal drummer of all time. Added to the mix, Chuck D from Public Enemy and legendary Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid have contributed their enormous talents to the album. To bring it all together Meat Beat Manifesto co-produced 'Drums of Death' along with DJ Spooky. 'Check it like this: the drum is universal - it doesn't matter if it's hip-hop, drum n bass or thrash metal - it's all about that beat. Me and Dave Lombardo flip beats to a different drummer -that's what this project is about: rhythm dialog, building bridges between scenes and styles. Flippin' the script always means there's new vocabularies to be explored, and we're just making up a new language as we go...Slayer was one of the only rock bands on early Def Jam, and they influenced my style. Dave's drumming wasmad rugged, and he was the rhythm unit. Like the illest live band in hip-hop, The Roots, has Q'est-love as their rhythm section, Slayer has Dave. Think of this as a dialog about that kind of cultural collision' -DJ Spooky'

"?they are predominantly creating new hybrids out of the oldest instrument in the world ? the drum. The results are often seat gripping.?"
"?Kultur Kreig utilises both Spooky and Lombardo?s technical prowess to full, Pulse racing effect??"
"Rocksound ?Chuck?s contributions, basically Public enemy reworkings, sound awesome.?"
