Dave Lombardo starts new hardcore punk band – Dead Cross

dead cross
In other news that beats trying to explain why My Dying Bride’s latest LP is a borehole and a psychic drain (more on that later today if all goes well), Dave Lombardo of Slayer fame has started a hardcore punk band, adding to his already substantial roster of projects. Besides Lombardo, Dead Cross also features Justin Pearson from The Locust and Retox. If the band’s lineup and announcement on Vice are any indication, Dead Cross may take more after modern hardcore punk and metalcore than older substyles of the genre. If you particularly need to hear members of Slayer performing classic hardcore punk, there’s always Slayer’s Undisputed Attitude, although Lombardo was out of the band when it came out in 1996.

    I’d love to hear Dave go full Fred Estby and d-beat away.

      That would be awesome, but you definitely have some wishful thinking. Chances are it’s gonna be in the vein of brocore bands.

          I guess I am a fucking asshole haha

          I’m not being negative, I’m being realistic. The only point I was trying to make was the chance of dead cross playing d-beat influenced hardcore punk is slim to none. If he released an album in the vein of discharge, that would be killer, but that’s as likely as entombed releasing an album in 2016 that would match the quality of left hand path. Not likely, it’s gonna most likely be nu hardcore just like the article states.
