Testament Returns !!!

Sorry if this has already been posted:
cheers


Originally conceived from the Bay Area in 1983; known for bringing metal to a whole new level of class by combining melodies, roars and growls with untouchable guitar riffs and brutality, the most respected thrash metallers around - Testament returns and proves how they simply influenced the generation of today's metal and hardcore.


With the return of guitar legend, Alex Skolnick, Greg Christian (bass), metals most significant rhythm guitarist Eric Peterson, enlisted pummeling drummer Nick Barker (Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth), and finally Heavy Metal's #1 and most respected vocalist Chuck Billy, who's distinct vocals can be recognized across the metal world today and for decades to come; will all be working out some new Testament songs. Riff master Eric Peterson along with Britain's cyclone-pounder Nick Barker are currently in Northern California locked down in the studio beginning to lay the foundation for whats to come. Eric Peterson states, "It's feeling pretty good so far...Nicks playing has sparked some fire in me like Lombardo did back in 99 when he played with us on "The Gathering"!

Despite being sidelined in 2001 by a rare form of cancer, Chuck Billy has made a full recovery and this will surely be the line up that will take over 2007!

Testament has confirmed a warm up US date in their home town of San Francisco. Saturday, January 27th at Independent they will follow up with a bombardment across Australia and Europe.

Didn't they reform over a year ago and play a handful of dates?
If I recall they had two drummers, one as stand-by because Louie Clemente was having problems trying to play fast or for long periods because he's old and knackered..or something.

I've always struggled to get into Testament. Maybe this year... maybe this year.

Yeah, they're here in a month or so.

Everyone else died in '06 except Chuck Billy. Either he's too metal to die or he's got his hands on some Chuck Norris tears.

Legend has it Chuck Norris has never cried... If anything has the power to defeat Chuck Norris' iron will, it is the power of metal.

I saw them like a year ago with Alex, they played everything REALLY SLOW. Like they really played everything 3/4th the tempo of the albums.
