Mark Tremonti Exploring His Metal Roots On Solo Album
As he prepares to issue his second solo effort Cauterize, the guitarist tells Loudwire via Anguish Force: "It's something I've always wanted to get out of me. That's what I grew up with, was speed metal. It's just that I got paired with the guys I did in Creed that people didn't really see that."
"It's mostly influenced by a mix of being in the back of mum's car and listening to 70s soft rock and then growing up and being a Slayer fan and Celtic Frost fan.
"I love black metal, speed metal, the San Francisco Bay Area thrash movement. You mix that with 70's soft rock so you've got the melody combined with the thrash, the speed metal a bit of punk here and there - that's what I love." Watch the video here.
