Testament’s Chuck Billy on The MetalSucks Podcast #332
Testament vocalist Chuck Billy is our guest this week. We discuss the band’s new album, Titans of Creation, how it’s the biggest risk the band has taken in their career, what it was like touring with Slayer on their farewell run, and the reason he prefers being on the road over being in the studio. We also talk about his recent bout with COVID-19, his fear of assimilating back into the public now that he’s recovered, how dealing with it at the same time as other members of the touring party helped (and update on all of those people), and his thoughts on how the coronavirus could impact the future. On a lighter note, Chuck tells us about how he finds golf and boating as peaceful ways to get away from the world right now, and his desire to get a new dog.
Petar and Brandon discuss how the Testament record Dark Roots of Earth had a factor in Petar spending eight hours in jail back in 2013, and they jaw about the latest metal news as usual.
Songs: Testament – “Children of The Next Level,” “Night of The Witch,” Wolfheart – “Hail of Steel”
