SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo revealed to Greece’s Rock Overdose in a new interview that Casey Chaos from AMEN will front a resurrected version of Lombardo‘s GRIP INC. project. A tour is in the works, with the possibility that a new studio album will follow.
GRIP INC.‘s fourth studio LP, “Incorporated”, was released in March 2004 through SPV Records. The follow-up to 1999’s “Solidify” was recorded and mixed at Woodhouse studios in Hagen, Germany and was produced by the group’s guitarist, Waldemar Sorychta (THE GATHERING, LACUNA COIL, SENTENCED, MOONSPELL).
GRIP INC.‘s lineup also included vocalist Gus Chambers, who died on October 13, 2008 at the age of 52. Chambers reportedly took his own life.
Lombardo, Chaos, EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt and ex-QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE bassist Nick Oliveri recently joined forces to record music for a documentary about House Of Shock, the infamous New Orleans haunted house attraction founded in 1992 by ex-PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo. Helming the sessions was producer Ross Robinson (SLIPKNOT, KORN, DEFTONES), who was approached to provide music for the film by director Dean Karr (best known for his landmark videos for MARILYN MANSON) and producer Sean E. Demott.
