Veteran thrash outfit Testament gave audiences their first preview of its new album this week.
The band debuted the lyric video for the song ‘Night of the Witch‘ Friday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album Titans of Creation.
The album is scheduled for release April 3 through Nuclear Blast Records. It was co-produced by Testament front man Chuck Billy, his band mate, guitarist Eric Peterson, and Juan Urteaga. Urteaga also engineered and recorded the album.
Andy Sneap (Fozzy, Skinlab, Nevermore) mixed and mastered the record. The cover art was designed by Eliran Kantor.
Testament front man Chuck Billy talked about the group’s new single and album in a recent interview.
“It has been months since the final mixing of Titans of Creation and we are eager for fans to hear it,” Billy said of the album. “We feel that we put a lot into this record and at the end of the day it is a Testament record that stands on its own. We are very proud of Titans of Creation.”
Speaking about the album’s lead single, Billy had this to say:
“‘Night of the Witch’ uses old school lyrics about witches chanting in the moonlight and casting spells. The beauty of this song is that I worked [guitarist] Eric’s [Peterson] vocals into the chorus. I wanted to incorporate him as he does Dragonlord, and this song was a perfect match. It is a heavy song and a great way to introduce everyone to Titans of Creation.”
