Dave Lombardo’s New Gig is Insidious

Oh wait.), just because you wouldn’t expect the guy who played drums on songs like “Dead Skin Mask” and “Mandatory Suicide” to be associated with a kiddie program.

This, on the other hand, seems far more appropriate: according to a new interview Metal Thunder Radio

“I’m collaborating with Joseph Bishara, who is the music composer for the horror movies The Conjuring, Annabelle and Insidious. I’m working on Insidious 3 with Joseph, and we’re creating some drums for the new movie.

“I’m really excited to do this. I set up all the drums, today I ordered the drums that I’m gonna use. I’m gonna be performing with two cello players, a viola and a violin player under Joseph’s direction. And he’s an amazing composer. I’ve been listening to his stuff for a while now.”

The original Insidious, which came out in 2010, was one of the rare horror movies that did actually give me a scary experience in the theater (at least until the end, when it looks like they ran out of money and filmed the conclusion with a smoke machine in someone’s mom’s basement), and Bishara’s score, often used sparingly (because silence can be SO creepy), was undeniably a part of that film’s power. I was less impressed by Insidious 2, which was okay, but felt too much like a re-tread of the original. But Insidious 3 not only sees co-screenwriter Leigh Whannell handling director duties, but is actually a prequel to the other two flicks, focusing instead on Lin Shaye’s psychic character, Elise. At no point during either Insidious movie did I think “Hm, I’d really like to know more about that old lady from There’s Something About Mary,” but my point is, maybe it’ll be fresher than Insidious 2?

In any case… the drums should be awesome!

Insidious 3 is scheduled to come out June 5, 2015. Presumably the score will be out sometime around then.
