Testament: New Album This Year
1987 Testament´s debut release “The Legacy” threw down a marker, and by the time Testament were about to release 1988’s “The New Order” their legend was already hitting enormous popularity. However, their extreme talent got muddied and compromised by the weight of expectation, and while albums like -1989’s “Practice What You Preach" and 1990’s “Souls Of Black” continued to open the same creative doors.
We Love Metal recently conducted an interview with vocalist Chuck Billy of the San Francisco Bay Area thrashers. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
Testament is planning to enter the studio in March to begin recording the following to 2008's "The Formation Of Damnation". A late 2011 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," Billy says.
