Mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico Tim Keller is a hardcore metalhead who happens to have a lot of love for thrash bands like Testament and Anthrax. Keller actually got to chill with Testament recently when he attended a recent show that is part of the band’s The Bay Strikes Back Tour; said tour features Testament as the headliner and being supported by Exodus and Death Angel.
Testament shared a photo of themselves with Keller, the caption associated with said photo reading:
“Thank you to the mayor of Albuquerque Tim Keller @mayorkeller for coming to our show last night! We love meeting members of our thrash metal family! #metalheads #testament #testamentlegions #thebaystrikesback”.
Keller has been the mayor of Albuquerque since 2017 and a vocal lover of metal. When Anthrax played in Albuquerque back in 2018, he even took to the stage to introduce the legendary thrash band. You can find footage of Keller introducing Anthrax below:
