Testament to Release ‘Dark Roots of Thrash’ DVD + CD Set

Testament Dark Roots of Thrash DVD
Nuclear Blast

Time to thrash with Testament in their most natural state — on the stage. 

The Bay Area icons are slated to release ‘Dark Roots of Thrash,’ a DVD and 2-CD set that chronicles the band’s sold-out show at The Paramount in Huntington, N.Y., which was filmed in February of this year.

The set will be released on Oct. 15 by the band’s label Nuclear Blast Records. It boasts over a dozen live tracks, full of unique camera angles, thanks to multiple onstage cameras and several that were positioned above the crowd. There was also a moshpit cam that captured what it was like to be in the middle of the maelstrom. So if you weren’t there, you’ll feel like you were. Only it’s a little bit safer and from a distance, since Testament pits are known for their figurative carnage.

Guitarist Eric Peterson said, “Metalheads! In case you’ve missed us on our ‘Dark Roots’ campaign tour, here’s a day in the life and good representation of our show! Check it out, and put on your list of metal to get!”

Those sentiments were echoed by singer Chuck Billy, known for playing air guitar with his mic stand during gigs, who said, “For all you diehard metal heads out there, ‘Dark Roots of Thrash’ is a must-have for your collection. This live DVD and CD is something you can put in you player and crank up for the feeling of a live Testament performance! You will get 18 songs from the early days of thrash metal to where we are today. Heavy metal forever!”

There’s a configuration for all fans, like a standard DVD+2-CD and 2-CD version; a limited Blu-ray with 2-CD (Europe only); LP (Europe only); and some special versions through the mail-order-only option, which you can shop for here.
