Musicpix.net conducted an interview with vocalist Chuck Billy of San Francisco Bay Area metallers Testament during the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise which set sail from Miami, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico on January 24, 2011 and returned four days later. You can watch the chat here.
Prosthetic Records recently re-released Testament's out-of-print 1995 hometown-show album "Live At The Fillmore" on CD. The LP was reissued digitally last spring.
The "Live At The Fillmore" re-release includes expanded artwork and new layout by Carson Slovak and new liner notes by Robert Deutsch.
Prosthetic previously reissued four Testament efforts: the acclaimed late-'90s studio albums "Demonic" and "The Gathering"; the re-recordings compilation "First Strike Still Deadly"; and the vintage live album "Live At Eindhoven '87".
Testament recently wrapped up the "American Carnage" tour with Slayer and Megadeth and is currently writing material for the follow-up to 2008's "The Formation Of Damnation".
"The new album will most likely be a culmination of 'The Gathering'  and 'The Formation of Damnation', but we're definitely not going to forget who we are or our roots. I think we've found a comfortable spot in our writing style," stated vocalist Chuck Billy.
"The Formation Of Damnation" was reissued on February 23, 2010 in a deluxe tour edition. The two-disc edition includes the band's comeback album plus bonus footage of classic tracks and more.
