The members of the Los Angeles power trio Philm make a formidably grouping.
Its guitarist, Gerry Nestler, was a founding member of the progressive metal band Civil Defiance; its bassist, Pancho Tomaselli, splits time with a gig in the classic funk band War. The drummer, Dave Lombardo, helped create 1980s thrash metal with the band Slayer and played the avant-garde rock band Fantômas, with Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton and Melvins’ guitarist Buzz Osborne.
Together, their music is sonic wave of funk, jazz and metal.
Never miss a local story.
The band released its second album, “Fire From The Evening Sun,” last September and has a third release in the works.
