Faith No More singer to head

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Faith No More front­man Mike Pat­ton, who has one of rock's most ver­sa­tile voices, said Mon­day that he was form­ing a new metal supergroup with Slayer drum­mer Dave Lom­bardo. Pat­ton wrote on Face­book that the supergroup called Dead Cross will re­lease an al­bum next year. The 48-year-old Pat­ton has a vo­cal range of six oc­taves-one of the great­est of any liv­ing singer, even in opera. Faith No More, with its hard-edged rock and el­e­ments of funk and hip-hop, was at the van­guard of the al­ter­na­tive mu­sic boom start­ing in the late 1980s and re­turned in 2015 with its first al­bum in nearly two decades.

The Cuban-born Lom­bardo of­ten fig­ures on lists of metal's top drum­mers. He is best known for Slayer, a macabre thrash metal band, and has also played with Sui­ci­dal Ten­den­cies and Mis­fits. Lom­bardo and Pat­ton pre­vi­ously joined forces for an­other supergroup called Fan­tomas. They will be joined in Dead Cross by gui­tarist Michael Crain and bassist and vo­cal­ist Justin Pear­son, who have both played in Re­tox, a hard­core punk band from San Diego. — AFP
