Testament To Record Three More Songs For New Album
According to Blabbermouth.net, on October 28, Aniruddh "Andrew" Bansal of Metal Assault conducted an interview with vocalist Chuck Billy of San Francisco Bay Area metallers Testament at the South Side Music Hall in Dallas, Texas during the band's tour with Anthrax and Death Angel. You can now watch the chat below. When asked about the status of the recording sessions for Testament's new album, "The Dark Roots Of Earth", tentatively due in late April/early May 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records, Billy said, "It's all [recorded]. I've got two songs to finish writing up [lyrics for] and three to sing totally. But all the music's done, everything's done. [They're] just waiting on me." 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.
