Testament To Record New Album This Summer
In a recent interview with Radio Metal, producer Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Exodus, Nevermore) revealed that Testament will begin work this summer recording the follow-up to 2008's The Formation Of Damnation. While it has been previously reported that Sneap had been tapped for the project, this is the first indication of a timetable for the recording of the as-yet-untitled album.
Back in December, Testament lead singer Chuck Billy spoke with M is for Music regarding the writing of the band's new album:
"We’re working on it right now. We’re still in the writing process. It’s gonna be what it’s gonna be. We definitely want it in the root and in the vein of the last record. We felt very positive about the last record. If we can just write 10 more songs as if we were writing The Formation of Damnation still. I would love to put some more elements of blast beat drumming in the new stuff, like in The Gathering."
