A drummer who grew up on classic and prog rock, John was also able to master the demands of thrash and make the style his own, showcased perfectly with Testament.
John Tempesta says:
“The way we recorded with Garth Richardson and Bill Kennedy, they had a PA in the room so I could actually hear the drums going through the PA and it sounded so awesome.
“For the title track I said, ‘Let me try to do this on my own, no click track or nothing,’ and I just played the whole song.”
“That album is very special to me. We actually worked our asses off on that one, we spent a lot of time writing that record. The instrumental on that is very cool too. I’m proud of every track on that record.”
