Long-running San Francisco Bay Area thrashers TESTAMENT have been forced to cancel their previously announced appearance at Earthshaker Fest due to "important personal obligations," according to a posting on the festival's web site. Replacing TESTAMENT on the bill will be the Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR.

Earthshaker Fest is a three-day event (including the opening-night party) set to take place July 21-23 in Geiselwind, Germany. Other acts scheduled to perform at this year's festival include MANOWAR, MASTERPLAN, NIGHTWISH, OVERKILL, PRIMAL FEAR and RHAPSODY.
