#93: Testament’s Chuck Billy and Exodus’ Steve “Zetro” Souza


The MetalSucks PodcastThis week Testament frontman Chuck Billy and Exodus vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza guest on the podcast to kick off the Dark Roots of Thrash Tour II. We talk about the early days of thrash metal, the differences between their experiences touring in the ’80s and today, the benefit show that possibly made the revival of their generation of bands possible, and we find out how these seemingly popular musicians really made their living for the last couple of decades.

Eyal Levi steps in once again for another edition of “One Minute to Midnight” by giving his advice to a couple of unsigned bands, and Chuck and Godless speculate about the situation with Skeletonwitch and their departed vocalist Chance Garnette. When a lead singer departs in such a public way, and has a family member in the band, how is it possible to move past it?
