Brian Posehn Taps Slayer, Testament, Soundgarden, Etc. Members For New Album

In a new interview with Metal Injection, comedian, Brian Posehn revealed the special guests the will be on his new album. Members of Testament, Slayer, Soundgarden and more have all been confirmed for the effort.

Here’s what he had to say:

“It’s taking forever but Anthrax is just finishing up their next record, it’s coming out in February. We’re using the same producer, [Jay Ruston]. We’ve been doing it for a while. It’s all written and most of the tracks are done. It’s just tweaking now. Scott and I wrote it with the help of Brendon Small from Metalocalypse, he wrote some songs too. It’s really close to being done and once we have it done, we’ll figure out when it’s coming out and all that.

We’re putting it out through Megaforce [Records], which, as a metal fan is crazy. I’m doing something for that label 30 years after loving that label.

I’ve been talking with Jay [Ruston] and after I finish promoting this movie, he and I are going to finish up what we can. We’re trying to get Phil Anselmo to do a guest part. We have a bunch of guests already. Alex Skolnick [Testament guitarist] did a solo. Gary Holt [Exodus and Slayer guitarist] did a solo. Kim Thayil from Soundgarden is doing a thing.

So a bunch of badass guys are doing parts. And, I’m also using other vocalists, as I’ve done before. I had Mark Osegueda of Death Angel do “More Metal Than You” with me, because I can’t scream. So, we have guys like Chuck Billy [Testament vocalist] coming in. I wrote a thing for Phil [Anselmo] to do and Phil said he’d do it, it’s just nailing him down and getting him in LA. And that’ll be it. Once we get those final touches down, we can put the record to bed.”
