8-bit Metal Mondays: Meet The New Slayer Drummer, Same As The Old Slayer Drummer

No, not Lombardo, the OTHER Slayer drummer.

It's no secret ow that Dave Lombardo has been bounced from the Slayer lineup, allegedly over his concerns of how his payouts were being handled. Whether it was not enough or too infrequent is anybody's guess, but Dave's insistence in finding out got him turfed. Terrible timing too, since it happened right before the untimely passing of Jeff Hanneman. So, it looked like Slayer would continue on, but with only two original members.

Then Paul Bostaph stepped back into the picture.

While not an original member, Paul was with the band for quite awhile after Dave's first exit. He played on three Slayer albums, and was a very suitable replacement. Given a choice, I'd still wish Dave had stayed as I prefer his style of drumming. However, Paul does have his own unique style, and can play the classics without much of a fuss. About the only other guy I could see in that slot is Kevin Kelley, but Battlecross got to snag him first.

And now, time for some Slayer bleepy action!
