Alex Skolnick and Dave Ellefson Show Off Some Metal Allegiance Riffs

In case you’re not familiar, Metal Allegiance is one of the vaunted supergroups of 2015 – one with an absurd amount of talent that includes Dave Ellefson from Megadeth, Alex Skolnick from Testament, and Mike Portnoy on drums, and various rotating members of Lamb of God, Mastodon, Pantera, and more.


We’ve covered Portnoy’s drum playthrough videos for this project (he plans on dropping a full drum cam DVD featuring performances of every track on the album), and now courtesy Guitar World, you can check out a simultaneous guitar/bass riff lesson with Alex Skolnick and Dave Ellefson for the track “Can’t Kill the Devil.” Riff on, dad!
