Alex Skolnick from TESTAMENT and ALEX SKOLNICK TRIO demonstrated metal guitar at the Peavey booth on January 21 at the 2012 NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Check out the footage in two parts below.
Skolnick is one of the true guitar heroes. He has performed in some of the world’s biggest venues with his seminal thrash metal band TESTAMENT, and relocated to New York City to earn a jazz degree from the New School. He has recorded four albums with his acclaimed trio, including his most recent, “Veritas”, out now on Palmetto Records.
TESTAMENT‘s new album, “The Dark Roots Of Earth”, is tentatively due in late April/early May 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records.
