When American thrash metal veterans Testament made their India debut in Bengaluru at the 2012 edition of the NH7 Weekender, it was a much-awaited chance for lead guitarist Alex Skolnick to explore India.

Skolnick, who is also a jazz guitarist, wrote a Bollywood-inspired song [“Bollywood Jam”] for his 2011 album Veritas with the Alex Skolnick Trio. Last month, the guitarist started jamming with Indian fusion guitarist Prasanna Ramaswamy for a project called Raga Metal Conversations [more on that later]. Skolnick’s interest for metal and India led us to ask him to be part of the jury for the fifth edition of the Zippo Presents Rolling Stone Metal Awards [vote here].
