Ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo is working with another band.  He's teamed up with California hardcore punk outfit Amen to record their new album and embark on a supporting tour. 

Lombardo says he's proud to be part of what he calls an "amazing production."  He explains that his career in thrash metal was created from his love of the punk genre, which he calls "aggressive, honest, and needed." 

Amen leader Casey Chaos adds that Lombardo has brought power, aggression, and passion to the group's new music in a way "only he could deliver."
