‘True American Hate,’ a new track from Testament’s upcoming album ‘Dark Roots of Earth,’ is now available for streaming (listen below). The band’s 10th studio album, and first since 2008‘s ‘The Formation of Damnation’ will be released July 31 on Nuclear Blast Records.
“It’s partially fantasy-based, partially based on the prophecies of the Mayan calendar, partially based on the whole prophecy of the end-of-the-world,” says guitarist Eric Peterson, “but nature always ends up taking charge in the aftermath, we always end up back with nature being in charge.”
“Our world is changing.” explains vocalist Chuck Billy. “It has changed over the last 10 years, the environment, the seasons, and it (makes you wonder) if there might be something to those prophecies.”
“It’s hard not to see what the media’s feeding us.” adds Peterson. “‘The End of The World’ is like a big billboard, an advertisement, and I think a lot of people believe in it.”
‘Dark Roots Of Earth’ was produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap. The bonus edition of the album includes three cover songs: Queen’s ’Dragon Attack,’ Scorpions’ ’Animal Magnetism’ and Iron Maiden’s ’Powerslave.’ “The whole thing about doing covers successfully is taking the song and making it your own so as people think ‘wow, that’s different, says Peterson. “And we certainly achieved that with ‘Dragon Attack’ and ‘Animal Magnetism.’
They did a more traditional version of ‘Powerslave.’ ”Yeah, we just selfishly put it on there because I’m a big fan of it!” grins Peterson. “Maiden’s version is (the one) and we pretty much kept it at that because it was really fun to play like that!”
In September, Testament will hit the road with Anthrax and Death Angel. The trio of bands did two prior legs beginning last fall, and had so much fun they are doing another run.

James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…
Cane Hill brought their Louisiana industrial sound to the
Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on March 11th of 2017. It
was a Saturday night which meant the people of PA were ready to party! There is
always a party following this band. Their energetic sound ignites something in
people. As they took the stage as the opener of the “Let’s Get
Abducted Tour” the crowd was anxious. They played multiple songs from their
2016 summer released album “Smile” and to the bands surprise most of the folks
watching them were mouthing the words. As they recently got back from touring
overseas it has come to their attention that they are steadily gaining
popularity. The link below allows you to find where they will be next along

used every time he returns even until today. Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities is avai…
