Lisa Kart of the Tampa Metal Music Examiner conducted an interview with guitarist Alex Skolnick of San Francisco Bay Area metallers TESTAMENT on November 1, 2011 at the House Of Blues in Orlando, Florida. You can now watch the chat below.
TESTAMENT's new album, "The Dark Roots Of Earth", is tentatively due in late April/early May 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records.
TESTAMENT has tapped Gene "The Atomic Clock" Hoglan (ex-DARK ANGEL, ex-STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY, DETHKLOK) to sit behind the kit for select dates on the ANTHRAX tour. Gene is performing with TESTAMENT from October 28 through November 13; the remainining dates will see TESTAMENT joined by John Tempesta (EXODUS, WHITE ZOMBIE, ROB ZOMBIE, HELMET, THE CULT).
Due to a "serious injury," regular TESTAMENT drummer Paul Bostaph is unable to take part in the tour. Paul was also absent from the recording sessions for "The Dark Roots Of Earth".
SADUS drummer Jon Allen sat behind the kit for TESTAMENT when the band performed in the place of IN FLAMES at the first two shows of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival on July 9 in San Bernardino, California and on July 10 in Mountain View, California as well as on the group's recently completed South American tour.
