Testament is an underrated band, they are so much better and technically skilled than metallica. People who know guitar can understand this.

I think Alex Skolnick just became my favorite guitarist. I like his humility, and his joy joy for sharing music making.

I rather see them replace metallica :) Testament should headline a tour like that. And put Exodus in there too.

I'm glad the mistakes are shown. I think we forget that even the legends have to practice and they don't kill everything in one take.

At 1:15 where he seems like he is having some difficulty playing this one line he wants to do... then busts into this cool sweeping lick just to remind himself "Ok... I'm still Badass!!" Alex you rock!!
