TESTAMENT: New Audio Interview With CHUCK BILLY Available

On April 29, 2010, Metal Monthly conducted an interview with vocalist Chuck Billy of San Francisco bay Area thrashers TESTAMENT. The chat is now available for streaming at this location.

TESTAMENT is rehearsing a brand new set for the upcoming "American Carnage" tour with SLAYER and MEGADETH. TESTAMENT promises to deliver a modern and most brutal set of songs which is sure to incite multiple mosh pits (old-school style). Fans can expect to hear favorites from "The Gathering", "Demonic" and TESTAMENT's most recent studio album, "The Formation Of Damnation".

Canadian guitarist Glen Drover (ex-MEGADETH, KING DIAMOND, EIDOLON) filled in for Alex Skolnick on TESTAMENT's recent tour with MEGADETH and EXODUS, which kicked off on March 1 in Spokane, Washington ran through the end of the month.

TESTAMENT performed its first-ever album, "The Legacy", in its entirety during the month-long trek that found these thrash titans crisscrossing the nation on the "Rust in Peace" 20th anniversary tour. In this monstrously massive celebration of metal, TESTAMENT felt it was time to throw down the gauntlet and bring people back to the roots of their visceral and vice-tight music, re-invoking songs which helped lay the foundation for a thrash generation. "We wanted to give the fans something different," said Chuck Billy. "We wanted to play these songs which have not been played since we've been touring [the latest TESTAMENT album] 'The Formation Of Damnation'."

TESTAMENT's highly acclaimed 2008 release, "The Formation Of Damnation", was reissued on February 23 in a deluxe tour edition. The two-disc edition includes the band's comeback album plus bonus footage of classic tracks and more.
