Anthrax Members, Testament’s Alex Skolnick Visit VH1 Classic’s ‘That Metal Show’ [Sneak Peek]
The new season of VH1 Classic's That Metal Show got off on the right foot, with the season premiere featuring Geddy Lee and John Petrucci becoming the second most watched premiere in the show's history. So what does the That Metal Show crew have scheduled as a follow-up? How about welcoming Anthrax's Frank Bello, Charlie Benante and Scott Ian for a chat, and Testament's Alex Skolnick as the guest shredder. And while that is one truly rocking show, there is a little mayhem behind the scenes. Just watch the video outtake featuring Eddie Trunk hilariously dealing with some technical issues while taking heat from the Anthrax guys. Take a look in the player above.
The Anthrax musicians give hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine an update on their new album, their various side projects and they take part in the show's "Rank" feature of their own albums and participate in the "Put It on the Table" Q&A session. Plus, things get a little passionate when the "Throwdown" segment turns to whether KISS' Unmasked or Dynasty is the better disc. Meanwhile, the band's vocalist, Joey Belladonna, checks in from Los Angeles via the "Metal Modem" and gives the audience an update on how his vocal tracking is going.
As for Skolnick, in addition to shredding on the episode, the guitarist also returns to That Metal Show to discuss his latest solo album Planetary Coalition. He also chats up the hosts about Testament's upcoming trek with Exodus and even donates one of his ESP LTD signature guitars to the Box of Junk for a lucky audience member to win.
Be sure to tune in Saturday night at 9PM ET/PT to VH1 Classic for the latest episode of That Metal Show, and if you miss it, it'll repeat at 11PM ET/PT.
