 flagTESTAMENT - interview with Chuck Billy, March 2010
Photo A special brand of damnation If you've never heard or even heard of Testament, what the hell is wrong with you? If you wrote 'em off as being influenced too much by Metallica early on, shame on you. If you didn't know they were still a viable force in the thrash metal scene today, what hole have you been living in and under which rock? Testament has had a series of high profile tours the past few years in support of their masterful 2008 album, The Formation of Damnation, and their relentlessness is ever more evident as they're hitting the road again on yet another pair of massive tours. I'll mention no names here because maybe you already know about all of this. If not, the answers you seek are below. If you missed out on TFOD, there's even a special "Deluxe Tour Edition" of said record with bonus features that's just been released in time for said killer tours. Read on as our American Editor, Tony Belcher, finds out how Chuck Billy's formed his special brand of damnation.
