Former Testament bassist Greg Christian has joined forces with Kinnefret guitarist Artak Ozan in a new band called Trinity Fallen. According to Christian, the two musicians are currently "looking for a real singer - someone with range, dynamics, and the beat, someone with vocal skills comparable to my bass skills or Artak's guitar skills - that can sing clean and sing aggression, but actually sing it, like a Cowboys From Hell / Vulgar Display Of Power-era Phil Anselmo, but with their own style."
Thrashers Testament are back in the studio! The follow-up to Dark Roots Of Earth released back in 2012 is finally shaping up.

Legendary thrashers Testament have received a lot of backlash after their headlining performance at Kukar Rockin' Fest 2014 in Tenggarong, Indonesia on March 9th. There was an incident involving Testament and the Indonesian band Power Metal, who performed before them. According to a report, Testament's stage crew pulled the plug on Power Metal's cables from their amps during their third song. Chuck Billy appeared on stage and the Indonesian band stepped down. The crowd was upset and sat down during Testament's performance that ended up being cut short. They left the stage and Power Metal later returned to perform. Testament have now released a statement about this justifying the situation with miscommunication and urgency to catch a flight, apologizing to the fans.
Testament announced on their official website and Facebook page that Greg Christian, the band's original and longtime bassist, has departed after a nearly-nine-year second term with them. The band's statement fortunately indicates that the split is mutual, and also saves us all the anticipation of waiting for the replacement. None other than Steve DiGiorgio has stepped in to fill Christian's shoes.
After a DVD trailer and a clip of "Rise Up", you can watch Testament perform "Native Blood" from their new DVD/2CD output Dark Roots Of Thrash through the YouTube video here.
