The band's remaining fans reacted favorably to Low although it did little to expand Testament's fanbase. Some fans, however, viewed Testament's move away from the mainstream as a liberation that allowed them to expand artistically, not being pressured by sales and success as they once were.
Tempesta left after the recording of the album, being replaced by Jon Dette for the following tour. Jon Dette departed the band in , during the — tour.
Dette's replacement was Chris Kontos, who had formerly been part of Machine Head. This lineup is featured on the Judas Priest cover Rapid Fire.
After the club tour, Greg Christian, James Murphy, and Chris Kontos departed the band. During the time Kontos was in Testament he suggested the band drop the name altogether and call the band "Dog Faced Gods".
This idea was turned down by Billy and Peterson who wanted to continue with the Testament name. The two later temporarily disbanded Testament.
The band's follow-up album, Demonic , released June , took a new approach, and found Testament experimenting with death metal more. The album featured Eric Peterson on both lead and rhythm guitar although Glen Alvelais made a guest appearance, and played on the subsequent tour , early member Derrick Ramirez on bass guitar, and former Dark Angel drummer Gene Hoglan.
Hoglan left before the Demonic tour to join Strapping Young Lad , with Steve Jacobs doing the South American leg of the tour and Jon Dette returning later.
Hoglan's loyalty to Strapping Young Lad and his desire to not remain a member of Testament actually came to realization during a published interview the band conducted with Metal Maniacs Magazine.
By , Ramirez, Alvelais and Dette had departed and James Murphy had returned for the June release of The Gathering.
The rhythm section on The Gathering was highly respected, consisting of metal fretless bass pioneer Steve Di Giorgio formerly of Death and Sadus and original Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo.
The sound of the album was largely a combination of death metal and thrash metal, with a minor black metal influence from Eric Peterson's side project , Dragonlord.
Soon after the release of The Gathering , lead guitarist James Murphy was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Through various fundraisers, Murphy was able to afford surgery and eventually made a full recovery, but was unable to recall anything from the recording of The Gathering.
In , Chuck Billy was also diagnosed with germ cell seminoma , a rare form of testicular cancer, but it only affected Billy's lungs and heart.
His cancer was also treated successfully. In August , friends of Billy organized the Thrash of the Titans benefit concert, featuring seminal Bay Area thrash metal bands Vio-lence , Death Angel , Exodus , Forbidden , Sadus and Heathen , as well as Anthrax , S.
The show was headlined by a Legacy reunion, featuring Steve Souza on vocals, and former guitarist Alex Skolnick , who had not played with the band since , and bassist Greg Christian.
Late in , Testament released First Strike Still Deadly , a collection of re-recordings with modern studio technology of songs from their first two albums.
The album featured the lineup of Billy, Peterson, Di Giorgio, the return of Alex Skolnick on guitar, and John Tempesta on drums.
By , Chuck Billy had made a full recovery, and the band began performing live again with a new drummer, Jon Allen of Sadus. In , the band changed their lineup once again for their summer festival appearances.
Jon Allen was replaced by Paul Bostaph, returning to the band for a second stint after a decade's absence. Lead guitarist Steve Smyth departed to join Nevermore and was replaced by ex- Halford guitarist "Metal" Mike Chlasciak.
Shortly after Steve Smyth's departure, Eric Peterson fell down a flight of stairs, breaking his leg, and was unavailable for some dates.
He was temporarily replaced by Steve Smyth. In May , it was announced that Testament would be doing a brief Europe-only reunion tour — known as the "10 Days in May Tour" — featuring the classic lineup of Billy, Peterson, Skolnick and Christian, with drum duties shared between John Tempesta and Louie Clemente.
After the success of the initial tour dates, Testament announced more dates in the U. Later that year, Skolnick also toured the East Coast with Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
The band went on to release a live DVD and CD from the tour entitled Live in London. In interviews on the DVD, Eric Peterson expressed his desire to record the follow-up to The Gathering with the classic Testament lineup.
He also stated that Alex Skolnick had begun writing songs for the new album. Chuck Billy was very vocal about how happy he was to have Alex, Greg, Louie, and John Tempesta in the band once again, and hoped to maintain a stable lineup going forward.
Also in , Testament's long-out of print documentary Seen Between the Lines was released on DVD for the first time. Testament played for the first time in the Middle East at the Dubai Desert Rock festival in March Other notable bands that performed for the Desert Rock Festival were Iron Maiden , Megadeth, Reel Big Fish and 3 Doors Down.
In July , the band played a show at Jaxx Nightclub in Springfield, Virginia , with Paul Bostaph filling in on drum duties.

The lyrics in this song discuss a sad truth: that mental illness is more common than we all think, and than many of us are willing to acknowledge.
The words are spiritual, and extremely personal. The creeping sludgieness and slow, stalking tempo, walk hand in hand with the almost unbelievably gruesome tale of the Nightstalker Richard Ramierz , all combining to form another stand-out track on the record.
In the days of writing an album all together in one room are far gone, but to be able to take advantage of technology allows for TESTAMENT to go about a very similar writing process to what they always have.
Basic songs are molded, structures are added by everyone in the group, instrumentals are highlighted, and finally the lyrics and vocals are created to finalize the sonic story.
In between writing this album, the band toured relentlessly which allowed for less stress, more time in between, and greater inspiration for this album cycle.
There was also plenty of anxiety-free and level-headed time for pre-production and the initial recording process with Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios.
Andy Sneap was then able to tweak, mix, and master this album to his usual perfection. While always managing to present the genuine aspects of thrash metal that solidify their existence, they spread into unique horizons through developing crisp and fascinating sounds.
Happy New Year to our friends in Japan and CLUB CITTA'! We miss you, and we hope to see you soon. Stay heavy, healthy, and safe until then!

Steve Jacobs. Die Band bewegte sich über die Jahre durch eine Reihe fester und temporärer Line-Ups, die teilweise noch während Tourneen mehrfach wechselten.
Für Demonic verpflichtete man Gene Hoglan ehemals Death , Dark-Angel , Strapping Young Lad , Devin Townsend und für The Gathering mit Dave Lombardo Slayer , Grip Inc.
Für First Strike Still Deadly , eine Compilation klassischer, neuaufgenommener Testament-Stücke, kehrte kurzzeitig neben Alex Skolnick an der Gitarre auch John Tempesta zurück.
Später übernahmen Jon Allen Sadus und Paul Bostaph Ex- Forbidden , -Slayer, und -Exodus , der auch bereits früher auf der Live- EP Return to the Apocalyptic City mitwirkte, das Schlagzeug.
Bostaph kehrte erneut zurück. Weitere Drummer in der Bandhistorie sind Jon Dette zeitweise Slayer, Evildead , Steve Jacobs Ex-Forbidden , der über die Jahre immer wieder im Live-Line-Up zu finden war und Chris Kontos Ex- Machine Head.
Nachdem bereits bei Death -Frontmann Chuck Schuldiner — ein Hirntumor diagnostiziert worden war, wurde bei Chuck Billy ein seltener Tumor im Brustbereich festgestellt.
Daraufhin wurde von Freunden Testaments das Thrash-of-the-Titans - Benefiz -Konzert zugunsten von Chuck Billy organisiert, bei dem viele namhafte er-Jahre-Bay-Area-Thrash-Bands und auch Bands der New Yorker Thrash-Szene in San Francisco auftraten und sich für dieses Konzert teilweise sogar wiedervereinigten.
Billy hat sich inzwischen vollständig erholt. Nach diesen zahlreichen Besetzungswechseln beschloss die Band, sich ähnlich wie Anthrax in ihrem klassischen Lineup wiederzuvereinigen und auf Tour zu gehen.
Ende April erschien mit The Formation of Damnation neun Jahre nach dem letzten Studioalbum ein neuer Longplayer. Die Band befand sich laut offiziellen Angaben ihrer Facebook-Seite ab dem Juni erneut im Studio.
