Testament - Page 5
California is the American Mecca for thrash metal. With top thrash innovators such as Metallica, Testament, Autopsy, Exodus, Death Angel and more having risen to fame together in the early '80s, a very tight-knit brotherhood has been created between these musicians. Despite this bond, Metallica and Testament have never toured together, and during our recent chat with Testament singer Chuck Billy, he told us it's his "dream" for the two acts to share a bill.
Comic Con attracts all walks of life, and this year some metal luminaries made appearances at the Jacob Javitz Center in New York City over the weekend.
For many metalheads, Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick is considered one of the greatest of all time. As one of the most talented and sonically diverse guitarists in music today, Skolnick possesses the skills of a master metal, jazz and symphonic artist, which is why he's the perfect teacher and host for the new series 'Louder Education.'
Testament's Alex Skolnick is one of the most beloved and admired guitarists in the world. Along with fellow band member Eric Peterson, the duo have unleashed some of the most ear-gasmic guitar hooks and solos in metal history. As well as being a thrash shredder, Skolnick dabbles in jazz with the Alex Skolnick Trio and has toured with the iconic rock opera outfit Trans-Siberian Orchestra. However, during our recent interview with Skolnick, he revealed that he has no plans to ever return to the Orchestra.
