That Alex Skolnick is one eclectic motherfucker.
The Testament and Alex Skolnick Trio guitarist is “immersed in global rhythms,” writing his first acoustic album with Planetary Coalition.
The disc drops in the spring of 2014.
The entire process is being documented through Artist Share, a platform that connects creative artists with fans in order to share the creative process and fund the creation of new artistic works.
An ethnically flavored collective of diverse musicians from all over the world, Planetary Coalition is driven by the acoustic guitar of Skolnick and world music (Rodrigo Y Gabriela).
Its mission is to tie together the virtuosity of jazz, the power of metal and the passion of the musical styles of Gypsy, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Indian, Asian, African, Latin and other indegenous lands.
