Anthrax, Testament, Death Angel: September 21, 2012. Calgary, Alberta

October 27th, 2012

Anthrax, Testament, Death Angel


September 21, 2012

MacEwan Hall, Calgary, Alberta

Review by JP and Monika

On September 21, 2012 a great triple bill of thrash veterans had fans’ anticipation high and tickets selling so well, that the gig was moved to a larger venue. On a hot Friday night in Calgary, Alta., Anthrax, Testament and Death Angel took over MacEwan Hall. The venue usually hosts all-ages shows but this time the show remained an 18+ event and the milling crowd appreciated still being able to have their beers and enjoy the concert.

TESTAMENT: More European Tour Dates Announced

October 24th, 2012
Testament

Testament

Bay area thrash legend’s TESTAMENT have announced several European tour dates planned for this November/December. The appearances include re-booked shows that had to be rescheduled due to drummer Gene Hoglan’s commitments with his other band DETHKLOK. “The LAMB OF GOD and DETHKLOK U.S. tour had to be canceled and DETHKLOK re-booked some shows. This has caused some conflicts with a few previously scheduled TESTAMENT dates since Gene couldn’t participate in them,” said the band. “Mark Hernandez (ex-FORBIDDEN) will be helping us out but he wasn’t available until November the 25th. So various shows will be staying the same but others may be moved to 2013.”

All refunds for cancelled shows are available at point of purchase. Confirmed appearances as of now are as follows:


TESTAMENT

11/27 Garage – Glasgow, Scotland
11/28 Wulfrun Hall – Wolverhampton, UK
11/29 Ritz – Manchester, UK
11/30 Koko – London, UK
12/1 Hard Rock Hell Festival – Prestatyn, Wales
12/3 Dynamo – Eindhoven, Netherlands (original tickets purchased remain valid)
12/5 KKZ – Moscow, Russia
12/6 Za Ozhidaniya – St.  Petersburg, Russia

Stay tuned for more European performances in 2013 to be announced soon.

The Native American Film Institute will be holding the 37th annual American Indian Film Festival this November 2 – 10 at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, CA. The event will include a screening of TESTAMENT’s “Native Blood” music video. Attendees can catch the showing on Friday, November 9, 2012  at 7:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased here for the event.

The American Indian Film Festival recognizes outstanding Indian cinematic accomplishments, and will recognize Native media makers and talent via its American Indian Motion Picture Awards Show. The Festival also provides an opportunity for filmmakers, tribes, media and public audiences to come together and share in the creative experience and celebrate cinematic accomplishment. For more information visit http://aifisf.com.

Native Blood”, whose lyrics are about vocalist Chuck Billy’s Native American heritage, was filmed at the Hopland Indian Reservation in Hopland, CA. The clip was directed by Mike Sloat (MACHINE HEAD, STAIND).

TESTAMENT recently wrapped up a co-headlining North American tour with fellow American thrash metal greats, ANTHRAX, and label mates DEATH ANGEL.

TESTAMENT scanned 20,720 copies of their new album Dark Roots of Earth in its first week of sales in the United States according to Nielsen SoundScan.

This also marks the highest first week sales for a Nuclear Blast artist yet.

Dark Roots of Earth was produced, mixed and mastered by acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (ARCH ENEMY, NEVERMORE, ACCEPT, EXODUS).

Chuck Billy of Testament

September 6th, 2012

Chuck Billy of Testament

Interviewed by EvilG

Bay Area thrash metal legends TESTAMENT, hit #9 on the world sales chart with a total of approximately 58,500 copies sold world-wide of their new album Dark Roots of Earth in its first week of sales. This is a huge accomplishment for a metal band, debuting on a chart that typically dominated by bubblegum pop. With the original line-up together and drummer Gene Hoglan back on the drum throne, we all knew this album was going to be something special. However, they’ve exceeded fans, and my own, high expectations and have managed to top their 2008 release with an album that is  arguably their finest. I got to speak with Chuck about the new album, the line-up, some of the songs, and a few other things. Read on…

TESTAMENT’s BILLY: MUSTAINE ‘Must Be Back On Drugs To Think What He Is Saying Makes Any Sense’

August 17th, 2012

Members of TESTAMENT and BROKEN HOPE have slammed MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine for implying during a concert that Barack Obama was somehow responsible for recent mass shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin.

 

While performing with MEGADETH on August 7 in Singapore, Mustaine told the crowd, “Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban. So he’s staging all of these murders, like the Fast And Furious thing down at the border and Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there. And now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple.”

 

He continued: “I don’t know where I’m gonna live if America keeps going the way it’s going because it looks like it’s turning into Nazi America.”

 

“I think he must be back on drugs to even think what he is saying makes any sense,” TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy, whose band has toured with MEGADETH many times before, told New York’s Daily News.

“There is freedom of speech and there just putting your foot in your mouth.”

 

“I’d like to see Mustaine face any of the victims from either tragedy and tell them that Obama did this to them,” said BROKEN HOPE guitarist Jeremy Wagner. “In fact, Mustaine, tell that to Ashley Moser who had a bullet lodged in her throat, a gunshot wound to her abdomen, and lost her 6-year-old daughter Veronica Moser-Sullivan when James Holmes fired upon them.

 

“I’m one of thousands who wish Mustaine would just keep his volatile mouth shut,” added Wagner.

 

“I find it hard to accept this diatribe at face value,” former RIP magazine editor Lonn M. Friend told the Daily News. “I go back 25 years with Mustaine and have long found him to be both a creative and conscious artist, a spiritual man who has battled and survived some pretty savage demons. These accusations are lunacy and just don’t sound like the evolved rocker I know. Maybe he broke a string.”

 

During yesterday’s appearance on InfoWars.com, a web site run by radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Mustaine attempted to put his words in context and answer some questions. When asked what he really meant about what he said on stage, Mustaine explained, “To clarify things, no one can deny that there were criminal rogues in the administration. CBS News got the memos, Congress has the information and basically, Larry Pratt, the head of Gun Owners of America, who is a highly respected person, said that if they would stage ‘Fast And Furious,’ they’d be capable of staging anything. He continued, “And it was all done to blame the Second Amendment. We’d be fools not to look at this. Our U.S. border patrol agents were killed. And like I said, I was just quoting Larry Pratt. That’s it bottom line.”

 

Mustaine also admitted that he could have chosen different words to express himself. He told Jones, “In the heat of the moment, when you’re onstage and you’re talking, sometimes you’re not as eloquent as you’d like to be. But like I said, I was just quoting what Larry said.” He added, “We really need to investigate this and we need to have the Attorney General release the documents and find out who’s responsible for this. People died and the democratic process says, ‘Let’s investigate this. Let’s find out what’s going on here.'”

 

Mustaine wrapped up the interview by saying, “I’m a patriot. I’ve always been controversial. I’m a political songwriter. And this wasn’t done to hurt any of my fellow countrymen. I think that it’s something that we really, really need to look into.

 

“I love our country and I respect it, my whole thing with this is that I think we should just look into it. I just think that we deserve to know the truth — that’s it.”
