Is Alex Skolnick still with these guys? I've always loved his playing!


Just looked on Wikipedia. If it is correct, he is with them on this one! biggrin.gif

That would be okay with me if it was! biggrin.gif I've seen people post satanic "stuff" on here, so why not? Actually (forget which album it was) they did have a song called "The Preacher." Alas, it was not a Christian tune.

Glad to hear new stuff from Testament biggrin.gif Their last album was one of the best metal albums I've heard in many years.

That trill intro sounds wicked. Wasn't Sckolnick playing in a jazz band for years when he was out of Testament?

Gotta love Testament! Almost sounds like early Tyr! I really think Alex Skolnick is DA MAN! Here is a vid of Alex playing with his Jazz Band The Alex Skolnick Trio. ( For some reason, before I new it was Jazz I almost expected Death Metal)

Man, they have a lot of different styles going on. Jazz, Funk... did I hear Flamenco? Skolnick is one heck of a diverse guitar player.

I love TYR so much. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

I like the sound of Testament's new album a lot. It is definitely heavier and overall darker. I think they are one of the few metal bands that have been able to evolve over time and still sound new and inspired. I am surprised Chuck is still this good after beating throat cancer.

Who would've thought that Alex could still write a metal solo that impressive after all these years! He still hasn't succumbed to his age. In fact, he has a lot of new licks that you just don't hear often in bands that are trying to make a come back. It seems as though he has still been learning a lot all these years(outside of Jazz).

Ah no, I'm not a bass player at all... but being able to play the guitar means that your finger skills / picking etc can translate over to the bass easily. It doesn't mean a guitarist thinks like a bassist or knows how to control the instrument as well but it's pretty easy for any of you guitar players to be rudimentary bassists smile.gif

Seen Testament with Skolnick live 4 years ago, they kicked ass, although sound was a bit harsh...
