Check out a new interview with Chuck Billy of Testament done last week.  Below are some excerpts.  Here’s the link:  http://www.loudtrax.com/Interviews.aspx

Excerpts:
Regarding Festivals in Europe vs. North America: …”In America everyone is “sue” happy and everyone wants to sue someone for something.  So I don’t think you can get away with having a festival like that in Europe over in America or Canada.”

Regarding the new Testament album: “We really want to pretend like we’re still writing songs for Formation of Damnation!”
Favorite Testament album:  …” Testament (album) is definitely Formation of Damnation.”
