TESTAMENT HAS RELEASED THEIR SECOND SINGLE OFF OF TITANS OF CREATION AND IS ABOUT TO EMBARK ON A NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
There are very few Testament releases that have ever disappointed. When others have zigged, they have zagged, and always kept true to themselves. When other bands tried becoming more radio-friendly, at the risk of losing their fan base, Testament has consistently stayed heavy.
The kicker is it’s never been heavy for the sake of being heavy because they mix in melodies with guttural vocals, and intricate song composition so as to not be a one-trick pony. You tell me when an album of theirs has come out, and you can rest assure it’s among my favorite releases of that year.
Because of this Titans Of Creation has to be one of my most anticipated releases of the year. The album drops on April 3rd.
Check out the video for “Children Of The Next Level” here:
We previously featured “Night Of The Witch” previously, check that video out here.
Here are some comments sent to us about the album:
Chuck Billy comments, “To all our Testament Legions out there… we hope you have been playing the shit out of our first single ‘Night of the Witch’ and are ready for our second release ‘Children of the Next Level’.
I know we are ready to play it live, so on March 6th, we are going to debut it for our fans attending the show at the O2 Academy in London. We are going to ask them to pull out their cameras and put up videos for everyone to enjoy and thrash it up! Hey, fucking Metal Forever!!!!!!”
The band will be going out on a thirty-day North American tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Municipal Waste, and Meshiaak.
