Testament Reveal NEW Album Title & Announce Tour Plans!

The mighty Thrash Metal band Testament have been very busy working on their tenth studio album titled "The Dark Roots of Earth" (scheduled to be released October via Nuclear Blast Records).

"The Dark Roots of Earth" is being produced by veteran producer Andy Sneap, who has worked with numerous bands including: Megadeth, Exodus, Machine Head, Nevermore and Arch Enemy. Unfortunately due to a "serious injury", Paul Bostaph was not able to be part of the recording of the album. However, he will return to Testament for future touring plans.
