Classic TESTAMENT Albums To Be Reissued With New Artwork In November

Bay Area thrash giants Testament have announced the re-release of five of their classic albums on November 17th via Nuclear Blast.

Titles to be reissued include:

Live At The Fillmore (1995)
Demonic (1997)
The Gathering (1999) (remastered by Andy Sneap)
First Strike Still Deadly (2001)
Live At Eindhoven '87 (2009)

Commented guitarist Eric Peterson: "I'm super stoked that Nuclear Blast, "the best metal label on earth", is re-releasing the re-birth of Testament era featuring Demonic & The Gathering - 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 classics First Strike Still Deadly. These classic records feature revamped art to boot that are unapologetic to their themes as they were."

Added vocalist Chuck Billy: "I am more than excited to have Nuclear Blast re release part of our catalogue that has been in need of a good home. Nuclear Blast has taken these albums in and will help Testament bring something killer to our fans."

The reissues of all five albums will feature stunning new artwork by Marcello Vasco (Slayer, Kreator) and will be released both as digipak CD and on black vinyl, Demonic, The Gathering and First Strike Still Deadly also being released on silver vinyl (Nuclear Blast Mailorder exclusive).

An associated merchandise collection will be launched soon. Pre-order your copies here.
