Testament Frontman Was Anxious About 'Brotherhood Of The Snake': Testament News


On Tuesday Testament Frontman Was Anxious About 'Brotherhood Of The Snake' was a top story. Here is the recap: (Metal Hammer) Testament frontman Chuck Billy says he felt nervous when band were recording Brotherhood Of The Snake as he was feeling pressure to better 2012's Dark Roots Of Earth.

Guitarist and songwriter Eric Peterson admitted earlier this month that they had to record the album quickly to meet deadlines and fulfil touring commitments.

And Billy says the urgency to lay down the tracks left him worried about how it would all turn out. Billy tells Metal Wani: "You always want to top your last record - you always want the production to be better than your last record. We were a little nervous because we had been working so long on the record. We went into the studio, I would say, almost unprepared. It was the first time that we did it like that.

"There was so much time going by trying to get songs completed that just weren't complete, it just angered and frustrated everybody. When we went into the studio, drummer Gene Hoglan, guitarist Alex Skolnick and bassist Steve DiGiorgio hadn't even heard any of the songs.

"So that was kind of a scary feeling, like, 'Are we getting in before we really should be?' And, 'Is it going to be a waste of time and we record what we have and it doesn't work out and it flops?' All those thoughts go through your mind." Read more - here.
