Testament - Dark Roots Of Earth 2LP

Nuclear Blast America

Bursting out of the Bay Area as Legacy in 1983 and later molding into the classic line-up that would be remembered for years, Testament was birthed in 1986 at a time when thrash metal was just beginning to change the American musical landscape. With a handful of timeless classics issued throughout the 80s and 90s, Testament was one of the few bands that seemed to get angrier, thrashier and more intense with each release. 2012's Dark Roots of Earth followed-up 2008's The Formation of Damnation and marked the return of drummer Gene Holgan (Opeth, Fear Factory, Death) for his first recording with the band since 1997's Demonic. Produced, mixed and mastered once again by the world renowned Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Nevermore, Accept, Exodus), this colored vinyl 2LP edition also features three bonus tracks including a cover of Queen's "Dragon Attack," Scorpion's "Animal Magnetism," and Iron Maiden's "Powerslave."
