A lot of people are clamoring for the release of the new Testament album. There is a reason why they’re still considered one of the greatest thrash bands of all time. For my money, the band has never disappointed, releasing one great album after another. I was curious to see what the band would be able to put together. This is the first time in a long time that producer Andy Sneap was not going to be involved in an album by the band, beyond its mixing. So here we have it, “Night Of The Witch” is the first thing that is being released off of Titans Of Creation, which drops on April 3rd. Check out the video here:
Here’s some information sent to us about the upcoming album:
The time has arrived for legendary bay area thrash metal giants TESTAMENT to unleash new thunder to the masses and reveal their thirteenth studio album, Titans Of Creation, which will be released on April 3 via Nuclear Blast.
Chuck Billy comments, “It has been months since the final mixing of ‘Titans Of Creation’ and we are eager for fans to hear it. We feel that we put a lot into this record and at the end of the day it is a TESTAMENT record that stands on its own. We are very proud of ‘Titans Of Creation.’”
“’Night Of The Witch’ uses old school lyrics about witches chanting in the moonlight and casting spells. The beauty of this song is that I worked Eric’s vocals into the chorus. I wanted to incorporate him as he does Dragonlord and this song was a perfect match. It is a heavy song and a great way to introduce everyone to ‘Titans Of Creation.’”
Titans Of Creation was produced by Chuck Billy and Eric Peterson while Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios handled co-producing, recording and engineering. Andy Sneap was responsible for the mixing and mastering of the album. Eliran Kantor stepped up once again to create a new masterpiece of artwork for the cover of this release.
Below is the track listing:
- Children Of The Next Level
- Dream Deceiver
- Night Of The Witch
- City Of Angels
- Ishtar’s Gate
- False Prophet
- The Healers
- Code Of Hammurabi
- Curse Of Osiris
Just as the elements of this planet thrive within all living creatures, each musician in TESTAMENT represents a necessary component of this latest musical creation. Still filled with a massive and unstoppable energy since their last release, TESTAMENT has taken their style to the next level and present an album that is loyal to the roots of traditional thrash metal while still including the alluring, brilliant and progressive ingredients they are known for.
