Terrorizer magazine reports that Testament singer Chuck Billy confirmed that drummer Paul Bostaph, who is out of action recovering from a serious injury, has left the band. The split appears to be amicable. Gene Hoglan filled in for Bostaph on the band's recent tour with Anthrax and Death Angel, and he is also providing the drumming for Testament's forthcoming album "The Dark Roots of Earth."
Billy commented to Terrorizer, "We just found our last week Paul Bostaph is not coming back to the band, he's starting his own new project and doing some things on his own. So we're actually going to be holding a couple of auditions with probably small group of drummers that we chose - we don't want to have a revolving drum stool, we have a new record we want a permanent drummer."
Ironically, Bostaph's new project is with former, and disgruntled, Anthrax singer Dan Nelson called Black Gates.
