Classic metallers Ratt recently spoke to Noisecreep about the band's current roster for the writing of their forthcoming crusher Infestation.

Having roughly formed in 1976 - though it wasn't until 1981 that the band became known as Ratt on LA's Sunset Strip - many notable guitarists like Jake E. Lee and the late Robbin Crosby have graced the band over the years. Now, as Ratt prepare to unleash their 7th studio album, the band stands tall with their newest guitarist Carlos Cavazo taking the dual lead role alongside Warren DeMartini.

Says frontman Stephen Pearcy about the addition of Cavazo, "He's perfect for the band. He co-wrote a couple songs and he plays like a mother f---er on this thing. Great live, great guy and great integrity for what he does. And as far as the double solos thing goes, he and Warren knew exactly what they were doing. It was like the old days."
