Jazz & Metal. What do these two completely different genres of music have in common? Yup, you got it right. Alex Skolnick. From being a lead guitarist of one of the most influential thrash metal outfit on earth (Testament) to forming & playing as a jazz player with his very own Alex Skolnick Trio, to being an avid blogger who is never afraid to call spade a spade to being one of the best selling metal authors in a very short time. Alex has done it all. It doesn’t end here. Alex is also a founding member and lead guitarist of all star heavy metal group Metal Allegiance.
Recently Alex and the gang were travelling to Japan and our Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi got a chance to interview this legendary composer. Listen on as he talks about Metal Allegiance, song writing, amazing line-up, new Testament Album, his music, his tours, his new gear & much more.
