Dave Lombardo joined Testament

Here's some news that surely Testament fans will love: Dave Lombardo joined (again) Testament.

Lombardo was a founding member of thrash metal giants SLAYER and served as a guest drummer on TESTAMENT's 1999 studio album "The Gathering," which also marked the band's first collaboration with then-unknown British producer/engineer Andy Sneap. 

Chucky Billy comments: "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', and we are ecstatic to see what new flavor he will bring back to TESTAMENT."

TESTAMENT parted ways with longtime drummer Gene Hoglan in January. Hoglan played drums on "Demonic" at first but didn't stay long enough to go on tour with the band. He joined TESTAMENT in 2011 and has appeared on the band's past three albums, "Dark Roots Of Earth" (2012), "Brotherhood Of The Snake" (2016), and "Titans Of Creation" (2020).
