Testament - Bassist Splits With Band, Replacement Announced

Testament announced on their official website and Facebook page that Greg Christian, the band's original and longtime bassist, has departed after a nearly-nine-year second term with them. The band's statement fortunately indicates that the split is mutual, and also saves us all the anticipation of waiting for the replacement. None other than Steve DiGiorgio has stepped in to fill Christian's shoes. DiGiorgio, the well-traveled metal veteran known for his fretless bass wizardry, is an alumnus not only of Testament (appearing on The Gathering and the compilation First Strike Still Deadly), but of Death, Iced Earth, Charred Walls Of The Damned, and numerous other projects. He will be joining Testament on their upcoming shows, as well as in the studio to record the successor to 2012's much-lauded Dark Roots Of Earth.
