ARTISTdirect.com sat down with the Philm's Dave Lombardo (drums) and Gerry Nestler (guitar/vocals) to talk about their pressure cooker of a new album Harmonic, out now, for our exclusive See the Music series. For this video chat, the duo zeroed in on the song "Vitriolize."
They reveal that they started the band in 1995, but due to Lombardo's busy schedule as the drummer of metal titans Slayer, it was a slow build, with a strong foundation being laid in the process. Nothin' wrong with that.
The band also revealed that the songs are born in an organic way and are created by lots of improvisation, with around 95 percent of the songs being improvised. They start playing and next thing you know, they have a song.
Watch and enjoy.
