Thrash metal band Testament will be releasing a new DVD/double CD called Dark Roots of Thrash, the show was recorded last February in New York.
Dark Roots of Trash will be released on October 11th in the EU, October 14th in the UK and October 15th in NA. It will be released via Nuclear Blast Records.
According to Information from their Official Website, the new live DVD/double CD Dark Roots Of Thrash was produced by Get Hammered Productions, directed by Tommy Jones (DEATH ANGEL, KATAKLYSM, SOILWORK) and mixed by Juan Urteaga (VILE, EXODUS, SADUS, MACHINE HEAD). Pretty solid, huh?.
The new DVD will feature 19 live songs which will be included in the double cd.
Here’s the full Tracklist for both of the CDs:
- 01. Intro
- 02. Rise Up
- 03. More Than Meets The Eye
- 04. Burnt Offerings
- 05. Native Blood
- 06. True American Hate
- 07. Dark Roots Of Earth

- 06. Do Not Resuscitate
- 07. Three Days In Darkness
- 08. The Formation Of Damnation
- 09. Over The Wall
- 10. Disciples Of The Watch
The tracklist was a good choice, full of nice songs, at least to me.
Here’s a little excerpt of the DVD, the song “Rise Up”.
It will be for sure be a pretty solid live performance caught on DVD, but, the audio seems to me a little too edited, a little too much, not beyond recognition but it surely does sounds like it’s not LIVE ( Well, almost every live DVD has its audio edited to be honest, this is no exception for that rule). With all that being said, this will be a kick ass DVD, with pretty solid production and nice camera angles.
