Dave Lombardo needs no introduction. His reputation as a drum innovator and musical bellwether is unsurpassed. Whether it was his decades-long tenure with thrash metal titans Slayer, his four-album stint with influential experimentalists Fantômas, or his work with prestigious composer/saxophonist John Zorn, Lombardo’s passion for, and spiritual connection to, sound transcends all boundaries. His long-awaited solo album Rites of Percussion is instinctual and cinematic. It’s not entirely a drum album, but it’s a drum album, the culmination of Lombardo’s experience, ambition, and tenacity. Influences on this album transcend his metal cred. Lombardo, who is Cuban, has sited inspirations including Max Roach’s We Insist!, Babatunde Olatunji’s Drums Of Passion: The Invocation, Mickey Hart’s Planet Drum, Tito Puente’s Top Percussion and Raul J. Canizares’ Sacred Sounds of Santeria Hometown: Los Angeles.
