“It is with much respect that we announce our mutual parting with bassist Greg Christian. Metal fretless bass pioneer Steve Di Giorgio will be returning to Testament. Steve previously was a member of Testament on The Gathering (1999) as well as First Strike Still Deadly (2001). He will be joining Testament on their upcoming shows in Australia on the Soundwave Festival, Japan and Mexico City. Steve will also be taking part in the new Testament album.

Sucks that Greg has left again. I can't wait to hear the new Testament (especially with Steve) anyway.

Yeah, I guess it was a mutual split. The guy replacing him ain't no slouch. But Greg Christian was cool as hell. I met him a few times, gave him a couple real smokes in trade for a pic with him. He was jonesing for a smoke, all he had was an e-ciggerette. Cool guy.

Loved Greg's bass sound. Steve's an awesome player as well, so it won't be a big set-back. Still, it sucks when someone like Greg who's been with the band from the beginning leaves.
