Testament Guitarist, Alex Skolnick Gets Creatively Stimulated
Skolnick tells Music Radar: “I honestly don’t remember what it’s like to get in a rut. It’s always possible to find something inspiring to work on as long as you recognise that what inspires you may change over the years.
“When I was younger, in order to be inspired by a live music recording, I required the energy and excitement of a huge rock concert. UFO’s Strangers In The Night, Deep Purple’s Made In Japan and The Jimi Hendrix Concerts were all favourites.
“Nowadays, I gain insight from talks, articles and podcasts by creative folk in other fields: writing, visual art, comedy, cooking, science and technology. Just find a topic that interests you and you’ll never walk away without feeling stimulated creatively and that always carries over into guitar. No Jedi mind tricks necessary.”

The band changed from Entombed to Entombed AD in January. Nico Elgstrand said “Alex claimed the name Entombed belongs to him, which it doesn’t. But instead of getting into a lawsuit that would have gone on for a long time and wouldn’t have made anyone happy except a bunch of lawyers, we decided to add AD and get on with making music and touring as a band.”
Brandon Butler Leaving Veil of Maya
Veil of Maya had this to say in a posting on their Facebook page. It reads as follows:
VEIL OF MAYA has parted ways with vocalist Brandon Butler.
Currently we are hard at work on our new studio album and while the music is almost finished, the hunt for a new vocalist is now on.
We are very excited with how well this album is turning out and cannot wait to release it soon on Sumerian Records. We know that both our long-time AND new fans will be calling THIS their favorite Veil of Maya album of all time.
We want to wish Brandon good luck with anything and everything that he does in the future and thank him for being a part of the band.
