Lombardo has been very influential over the progression of thrash/metal drumming, although I think Bostaph is probably a superior player. i only really know his playing with Forbidden from years ago and I liked what I heard.

I can't decide, I've often debated this with myself as well...Lombardo's double bass is more even, Bostaph's is kind of weird sometimes...but I like his playing as well...I think I'm going to say Bostaph...but not by much. It's pretty even for me..

i used to be a hardcore slayer fan back in the day. dave lombardo was a really big influence to me back when i first started. not only that, but it was him who turned me on to classical music.

of course, lombardo!

I saw Lombardo here in sweden with Slayer 2 weeks ago and Iīve heard a little with bostaph too. I think Lombardo plays better with slayer, though I didnīt like the concert.
It was so sterotypical, when they played something that didnīt have that 32nd bassdrum blastbeats or fast guitarriffs the audience just stood there, almost waiting for those passages, and when they did play those ultrafast things, everyone got wild and started jumping and waving their arms everywhere, I even got hit by a drunkie.

Although when I have heard them on record, Iīm impressed by their music!

Many people said : "Paul Bostaph has awfully big shoes to fill". To that, Tom said "Actually, the shoes are a little too tight".

I agree.

but im not talking about actual techinqual capability here... im talking about which style works better with the music.... lombardo is much tighter than bostaph (wat with the flatfoot playing and all) but bostaph has so much creativity on the drums.... i cant say ones better than the other , cuz in the end its king and hanneman writting the music.... but i wanted to get some outside point of views
