British producer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Nevermore, Exodus) has revealed to Radio Metal that he will enter the studio this summer with San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans Testament to begin work on the follow-up to 2008's "The Formation Of Damnation". A late 2011/early 2012 release is expected. "The new album will most likely be a culmination of 'The Gathering' [1999] 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", Testament vocalist Chuck Billy stated in a 2010 interview. "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. 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". Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

Go ahead and throw exodus in that circle as well I love them too. That would be the "Big Six" if you included Testament and Exodus in the big four with Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth and Slayer.
    That's what they need to do. Make it The Big 6. Yes, I know it was basically the 4 that made it what it was today, but to see all 6 bands at one show would be jizztastic! Anybody going to The Big 4 show in Indio, CA?
