Well, what can I say but I am a happy little pickle today because my probably favorite thrash band got Dave Lombardo back on drums for the first time in years! That’s right, Thrash gods TESTAMENT can continue most of The Gathering line up’s blazing chemistry AND it would also be killer to hear Dave play on newer classics like “Native Blood” and “Children of the Next Level”. And while we love James Murphy, you all know Skolnick and Dave is gonna be so sick. If only Dave McKean would come back and do some art, haha. I just hope they also take a crack at “True Believer” live, a personal fave.

Chuck Billy declares “I’ll state the obvious, We are more than overwhelmed to welcome back Dave Lombardo to play drums with Testament. We are so excited to share the stage again with Lombardo. Dave added immense power when he joined the band for The Gathering (release), and we are ecstatic to see what new flavor he will bring back to Testament.”

 

Dave Lombardo stated, “This is a long-awaited reunion that was bound to happen. Once upon a time, we created a thrash masterpiece. I have no doubt that our musical chemistry will pick up exactly where we left off. I love the Testament family and am very excited to be joining them once again. Pure brutality awaits.”

 

Eric Peterson expresses, “Having Dave Lombardo join us again feels like we are picking up where unfinished business had left off. There is a silver lining to every cloud and working again with Dave calls for us to celebrate with our horns held high expresses, “Having Dave Lombardo join us again feels like we are picking up where unfinished business had left off.
