TESTAMENT - new label, new songs, new video footage! - 2007-07-23

2007-07-23 - TESTAMENT have played one of their new songs on the "Sounds Of The Underground"- Tour and are now talking about their upcoming album. TESTAMENT recently inked a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The group will enter the studio late summer/early fall to record its long-awaited new album for a March 2008 release. HeavyMetalSource.com has posted a video interview with TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy, conducted last Saturday at the Sayreville, New Jersey stop of the "Sounds Of The Underground"- tour. Watch the ten-minute clip at YouTube.Original TESTAMENT members Alex Skolnick (guitar), Chuck Billy (vocals), Greg Christian (bass), and Eric Peterson (guitar), along with new drummer Nick Barker (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, CRADLE OF FILTH), have finished writing more eight or nine songs for the group's long-awaited follow-up to 1999's "The Gathering". In a recent interview with RockConfidential.com, Chuck Billy stated about the new TESTAMENT material, "The music is very heavy but it's very catchy. Eric's got some really catchy riffs. The vocals are real melodic with some catchy hooks. It's really heavy. It's something new. Nick, coming from a black metal background, is adding that spark that we needed. It's a fresh breath of life to our writing. In the past couple of years we've written some songs but they weren't up to par with 'The Gathering'. Those songs just went in the trash. We just started over when Nick came into the picture. We're on a roll and the songs are turning out really good. . . [Lyrically] it's gonna be covering a lot of stuff, things we've experienced in life. Especially my illness, the cancer, and what I went through. I had some healing sessions and did a lot of sweat lodges with some Indians and medicine men. I'm sure I'll be talking about my experiences with the medicine men. My father and Eric's father both passed away within the past couple of years. The war in Iraq. We'll be talking about those issues. It's things that people deal with in everyday life. We've gone away from the cliché gloom-and-doom lyrics, the typical heavy metal lyrics." Sunday night (July 15) TESTAMENT debuted a new song, entitled "The Afterlife", during their headlining set at Jaxx in West Springfield, Virginia. According to one attendee, the track was "a mid-paced song that was very heavy and had some good, chunky riffs." Sitting behind the kit with the group was returning drummer Paul Bostaph (SLAYER, FORBIDDEN), who was filling on short notice for Nick Barker.
