Former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo shared details of the new Philm album "Fire From the Evening Sun," expressing hope for a July release.
"We're waiting to lock in a record label," Dave told Capital Chaos TV. "Hopefully in July we'll have it released. We're gonna put it out on vinyl, as well as CD and digital download."
Announcing the "Fire From the Evening Sun" title and 12 new songs, the drummer went on to compare the effort with the band's 2012 debut "Harmonic," saying, "We didn't accept any boundaries on ['Harmonic'], we just wanted to experiment. The second album - the songs are more concise, a little more solid, instead of the loose structures that we had on the first album."
Discussing Philm's studio approach, Lombardo noted, "We improvise everything first and then the engineer, which is my son, he cuts the songs, we arrange them and that's how we create our music."
The group seems to be in a very creative mode right now, since Dave has also confirmed having five more fresh tracks ready to be released as a separate EP nine months later. Stay tuned for more info, check out the full interview and "Held in Light" video below.
