Nuclear Blast Records has yet to ship out the promotional reviews copies of Dark Roots of Earth to many members of the press, but have made two audio streams available to the public at this point. As a huge Testament fan, I simply couldn’t wait to hear the songs, and dove right in. However, what I heard really made me drop my enthusiasm for another album, or the possibility of a better one than 2008’s The Formation of Damnation.
BAY AREA, CA â€“ Bay Area thrash metal legend, Testament, has launched a stream of the new track, â€œTrue American Hate,â€ via Nuclear Blastâ€™s website: http://bit.ly/tdroelp, along with several Dark Roots Of Earth pre-order options. â€œTrue American Hateâ€ is the first track to surface from the bandâ€™s highly anticipated 10th studio album, Dark Roots Of Earth â€“ its first release in over four years following 2008â€™s critically acclaimed, The Formation Of Damnation.
