Veteran thrash outfit Testament will see a handful of its classic albums re-issued on vinyl this fall.
Nuclear Blast Records will re-issue five of the band’s records, including two live recordings, on Nov. 17, 2017. The recordings — Live at the Fillmore (1995), Demonic (1997), The Gathering (1999) [re-mastered by Andy Sneap), First Strike Still Deadly (2001) and Live at Eindhoven ’87 (2009) — will be re-issued on vinyl and as digi-packs. They will also feature new artwork.
Testament guitarist Eric Peterson said in a recent interview that he was looking forward to the recordings’ re-issues.
“I’m super stoked that Nuclear Blast, the best metal label on Earth, is re-releasing the re-birth of Testament era featuring Demonic and The Gathering,” Peterson said. “These two albums brought us back to life with ultra heavy and unrelenting fury and melody. Also, ‘87’s live classic in full Live in Eindhoven and re-recordings of our classic First Strike Still Deadly. These classic records feature revamped art to boot that are unapologetic to their themes as they were.”
Front man Chuck Billy agreed.
“I am more than excited to have Nuclear Blast re-release part of our catalogue that has been in need of a good home,” Billy said. “Nuclear Blast has taken these albums in and will help Testament bring something killer to our fans.”
Pre-orders are available now for each re-issue. An associated merchandise collection will soon launch.
