Dave Lombardo vs. Pete Sandoval – Greatest Metal Drummer, Round 2
Former Slayer stickman Dave Lombardo steamrolled over Municipal Waste drummer Dave Witte in Round 1 of our Greatest Metal Drummer competition. Lombardo is certainly a favorite among the remaining competitors, but the Slayer legend has his hands full as he moves on to battle one of metal's most technically revolutionary percussionists.
It was a a tight Round 1 battle, but Morbid Angel / Terrorizer drummer Pete Sandoval took down the very talented Chris Pennie of the Dillinger Escape Plan. The Technical Masters Division of the Greatest Metal Drummer tournament is shaping up to be an exciting one, beginning with this second round face-off between Pete Sandoval and Dave Lombardo.
