Bay area thrash metal giants Testament unleashed their highly acclaimed thirteenth studio album, “Titans Of Creation”, via Nuclear Blast in 2020.
Today, Testament release the “Titans Of Creation Video Album” via Nuclear Blast Records. The limited-edition collectible features performance videos of all the tracks on the record. The footage was compiled at a soundstage in San Francisco and was edited into music video-style clips that is available on Blu-Ray accompanying the CD with bonus photos and liner notes plus a button and sticker in a longbox. Staying true to the record, the performances feature Gene Hoglan behind the kit. This version is limited to 6,500 units worldwide.
In celebration, the band releases the music video for the track ‘WWIII‘ which you can watch below:
Chuck Billy comments:
“I am very excited for the release of our ‘WW3‘ video. This song is really relevant to what is going on in this crazy world we live in. When the song was written it was based on a future that I wished would never happen. Today, I feel anything is possible.”
“Titans Of Creation” was produced by Chuck Billy and Eric Peterson while Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios handled co-producing, recording and engineering. Andy Sneap was responsible for the mixing and mastering of the album. Eliran Kantor stepped up once again to create a new masterpiece of artwork for the cover of this release.
