Dave Lombardo's Rarely Unable

Found this on Terrorizer's site. Dave Lombardo has a side project, and the first track released by them will make you wonder "Are we talking about the same Dave Lombardo?" Not the heshfest one would expect from the man known for the most celebrated floor tom beat in metal, but still way more interesting than anything he did in Grip Inc.

My first instinct is to lazily compare it to Mastodon and Kylesa, though the man himself describes it as "taking all the heavy songs of the '60s and bringing that era to a modern plateau, then blending them with the modern trance and psychedelic sounds of today." Well all righty then, but I'd still love to hear what Kerry King, ever the diplomat, has to say about it.
