TESTAMENT Guitarist Alex Skolnick Leaves TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA

August 11th, 2010

TESTAMENT guitarist Alex Skolnick has checked in with the following update:

“It’s been nearly ten years since my first TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA winter tour. Each year it’s been an incredible experience, traveling from arena to arena being an important part of the largest symphonic rock production in history. This year, however, I’ve decided to make the difficult decision of stepping out of the spotlight (and lasers, fog, fire and snow) and embarking upon new adventures.

The reasons for this are twofold.

As one might imagine, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra winter tour is a demanding one — with long days and an action-packed show that calls for no less than 200% of yourself, often twice a day from the mid-October rehearsals to the final show in January.

While the awesome response from fans and the collaboration with fellow performers make it beyond worth it, there comes a point, after so many years of annual grueling intensity, for some of us to draw upon that quarter of a year’s worth of time and energy in order to launch a renewed focus on our own visions.

In my case, this process begins with the release of a brand new (ALEX SKOLNICK TRIO) album to be followed by heavy touring, including winter dates in support of RODRIGO Y GABRIELA.

There are many other endeavors in the works, the information of which will be continually updated online at AlexSkolnick.com. Furthermore, as someone who has been on tour with multiple projects and running on all cylinders during the entire calendar year since 2006, reclaiming this three-month period will open up the option to take breaks once in a while, remember what home looks like, lessen the constant separation from friends and loved ones and recharge my own batteries as needed.

Of course, I’ll miss doing the Trans-Siberian Orchestra tour. The stage time, friendships and overall experience has

I’m grateful to Paul O’Neil and Nightcastle Management for the opportunity, to all the musicians and singers for the good times and to all the fans for the unyielding support; you guys are the best! I look forward to seeing many of you out there in different configurations.”

Worth The Wait: Canadian Carnage Comes to the Maritimes (Testament, Megadeth, and Slayer)

July 30th, 2010

Worth The Wait: Canadian Carnage Comes to the Maritimes

Testament, Megadeth, and Slayer Live at the Metro Centre

July 26th, 2010 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada




Review by EvilG

Live Pics thanks to Jason Saulnier


Originally scheduled for November 2009, then moved to February 2010, then again moved to July 2010, this seemed to be the concert that would never happen for many of us on the East Coast of Canada. Thanks to the rescheduling, in airline ticket change fees alone this concert cost $300! Add on top of the actual flight cost, concert ticket, hotels, meals, and a pile of metal shirts, this is one of the most expensive concerts I’ve ever been to!! Sadly none of these bands have ever played out this way before which added to the anticipation. As everyone knows, the delays were caused by Slayer’s Tom Araya and his ongoing back problems and eventual back surgery. The line-up also changed with openers Machine Head being replaced by the mighty Testament and the band Suicide Silence thankfully no longer on the bill for July.

HEAVY METAL TITANS TESTAMENT JOIN SLAYER & MEGADETH TO KICK OFF OF THE  ‘AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR’

– THE HISTORY-MAKING METAL TOUR TO BEGIN IN QUEBEC ON JULY 23RD!

The Bay Area’s premier thrash kings TESTAMENT are geared up and ready to tear apart North America with fellow heavy metal heavyweights Slayer and Megadeth on the highly anticipated AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR! The thrash trifecta will be joining forces for the first time in 20 years since the Clash of the Titans Tour in 1990! Don’t miss this renowned event in heavy metal history!

“We’re gearing up to start what will be known as the heaviest thrash event ever,” states TESTAMENT guitarist Eric Peterson. “Slayer, Megadeth and Testament haven’t shared the stage since the original and first tour in 1990 of Clash of the Titans in Europe. New thrash fans that only heard rumors and never were able to witness Clash of the Titans will be delighted because all three bands are just as heavy and lethal as ever, if not more. Old school thrash fans, if you missed the line-up before, you don’t want to miss this!” Peterson added, “We’ve had great success during the two and a half year The Formation of Damnation campaign, and feel honored and excited to end the campaign with a tour like this. After the AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR, we head straight into the studio to work on new material for our forthcoming record, releasing mid 2011 through Nuclear Blast Records.”

In celebration of this heralded event, TESTAMENT is offering an amazing opportunity with their VIP package. This is the fan’s chance to meet the band and get exclusive limited addition merchandise on this epic tour before Testament head into the studio to record the follow up to their Golden Gods “Album of the Year”, The Formation Of Damnation! Now, the Testament VIP package offers some great additions, including an exclusive TESTAMENT Affliction T-shirt!

Front man Chuck Billy reflected on the VIP experience that TESTAMENT fans can expect this summer:

“If there is one thing true about us, we love our fans so much that we want to hang out with them, give them special shit and then throw them INTO THE PIT!  This tour is huge, with three of the greatest bands in metal reuniting after 20 years.  We want to make you a part of this special event.  So hook yourself up with a TESTAMENT AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR VIP Pack today.”

The band is offering a limited number of VIP Packages for every United States date on the tour. Act now and make sure to take hold of this great opportunity to be a part of METAL HISTORY with  TESTAMENT this summer!

TESTAMENT – Guitarist Eric Peterson

Interview with TESTAMENT guitarist Eric Peterson

Interview + pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

TESTA - Eric.jpg

Testament have been touring their ass off ever since their excellent comeback album, THE FORMATION OF DAMNATION, was released in 2008. They have done many headlining tours of their own during 2008-2009, this including playing as a part of “Priest East” together with the mighty Judas Priest and Megadeth on their UK tour in February 2009 – and overall just working really hard touring-wise to keep the band´s name on people lips the best they can.

Testament also played at Ankkarock festival in Finland on August 2nd and were very well received there by the fans. After their gig I met a tired Eric Peterson briefly in Testament´s dressing room, and he was kind enough to tell what´s still in store for Testament for the remaining months of this ongoing year…
