Terrorizer have announced that Testament drummer Paul Bostaph has left the band to form his own band Black Gates with former Anthrax singer Dan Nelson.
"We just found our last week Paul Bostaph is not coming back to the band, he's starting his own new project and doing some things on his own. So we're actually going to be holding a couple of auditions with probably small group of drummers that we chose - we don't want to have a revolving drum stool, we have a new record we want a permanent drummer... We're still buddies, it's just that Paul feels at this point in his career he wants to be in a little more in control of the artistic creation of the songs and with his new project they are all involved with that process whereas with our group Eric is pretty much the main songwriter and that's just the way its been with us for 25 years."
The drummer Gene Hoglan, who participated on the forthcoming Testament album Dark Roots Of Earth, will be joining the band on the upcoming co-headliner shows with Anthrax on the Anthrax North American Tour, to take place from October 28th to November 13th.
