Testament release new single ‘Stronghold’

Thrash metal legends TESTAMENT have released a brand new single!

The track, titled Stronghold, is taken from the band’s hotly anticipated new record, The Brotherhood of the Snake, which is set for release later in October. Speaking about the record, vocalist Chuck Billy tells Distorted Sound, “I think definitely if you ask what this record is going to be like, the tempos are definitely sped up and we definitely have our foot on the gas pedal on this one. There’s like five or six thrash songs on this one whereas Dark Roots of Earth, the pace is a little slower and you have more melodic and catchier songs. I think this one is definitely more thrashy, I think the fans will enjoy that.”
