Biography

Forbidden

Slayer

After Dave Lombardo left Slayer in 1992, the band were looking for a new drummer; Lombardo's drum teacher was filling in but constantly made errors.[1] After trialling several drummers and listening to hundreds demo tapes Bostaph was recommended by Slayer guitarist Kerry King's guitar technician, John Tempesta.[1] Slayer members listened to Forbidden records, however, they did not see how Bostaph could fit into the Slayer momentum - Lombardo's style being "over the top", while Forbidden was more melodic.[1] The band eventually trialled Bostaph with nine songs, only making an error on "Angel of Death. Bostaph had to continually practice to improve the strength of his hands, and feet to improve his drumming ability: "I respected and loved Dave’s drumming but as a fan, if they got a new drummer and I bought a ticket to a show, I would expect to hear the stuff that Dave does, that’s what I would want. So, I went in and every time I had to learn a new song I would play them exactly how Dave played them"[1] Dave Lombardo (born February 16, 1965) is a metal drummer from Havana, Cuba. ... Kerry King (born June 3, 1964 in Los Angeles, California) is guitarist, best known as a founding member of the thrash metal band Slayer. ...

Angel of Death is the opening track from the thrash metal band Slayers 1986 release Reign in Blood. ...


Bostaph recorded three albums with the band, his least favorite is 1994's Divine Intervention. This is due to the guitars not being loud enough as they were in the recording session, moving around to several recording studios, and a producer who had never done any heavy metal music. The producer changed near the end of recording to Toby Wright - Bostaph stating "that record never had any consistency to it although a lot of fans still like it."[1] Bostaph left the band in 1996 to concentrate on his solo project, "The Truth About Seafood" and was replaced by Jon Dette, however, he returned in 1997. His second favorite album is 2001's God Hates Us All "The whole era that I was with the band that was the album that was the most well-rounded and mixed the best" with Diabolus in Musica.[1] Divine Intervention is an album by the band Slayer, released October 3, 1994 through American Recordings. ...

Bostaph left the band after the release of God Hates Us All stating he had a chronic elbow injury that would hinder his ability to play drums.[2] His third last performance with the band is recorded on the DVD War at the Warfield recorded on December 7, 2001. Bostaph is yet to watch it as he feels "It’s like breaking up with a girlfriend" and needs to move on with his life. He still remains friends with Slayer members, and when asked if he would work with them in the future replied "sure".[1] DVD (commonly known as Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc) is an optical disc storage media format that can be used for data storage, including movies with high video and sound quality. ...

Systematic

Unwilling to give up music, Bostaph joined Systematic in 2003 - a band which he had previously formed with vocalist Tim Narducci and guitarist Adam Ruppel, before the band were named Systematic and prior to recording Diabolus in Musica. Bostaph introduced the band to Slayer's manager - Rick Sales to help the band gain notice. Since the band needed a drummer in 2003, and his friendship with members Bostaph was willing to help out.[1] Systematic was a hard rock band from California, USA. The band was one of the first signings to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrichs record label, The Music Company (via Elektra Records). ...


Bostaph toured with Systematic for four months, departing in 2004: "I wasn’t having very much fun and it’s not for me."[1] In 2003 Bostaph sustained an injury to his knee, while playing soccer. After finishing Systematics tour, Bostaph underwent surgery - not touching a drum kit for over a year until he received a phone call from Testament members.[1]

- Paul Bostaph - encyklopedia (301 words)
Paul nauczył się grać słuchając ulubionych kapel, głównie Iron Maiden; karierę muzyka zaczął w thrash metalowym zespole Forbidden (1988-1990), nagrywając z nim dwa albumy i jedną EP.
Bostaph sam był fanem zespołu i wiedząc na czyim miejscu może zasiąść, bez zastanowienia pojechał na przesłuchanie.
W 2002 Bostaph opuścił Slayer na stałe, z powodu przedłużającej się kontuzji łokcia oraz zmęczeniem pracą w zespole, ale już w 2003 podpisał kontrakt z nu metalową kapelą Systematic i jeszcze w tym samym roku nagrał z nią płytę.
