Testament: 'Native Blood' Single Now Available
"Native Blood", a brand new song from San Francisco Bay Area metallers Testament, is available now as a digital download as well as on limited seven-inch vinyl in various colours. The single contains an exclusive Spanish-language version of the title song as the B-side. Behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot for "Native Blood" can be seen below. The clip was shot last month on an Indian reservation in Hopland, California. Guitarist Eric Peterson told Greece's Rock Overdose webzine, "It's about people who were oppressed in life. We haven't done [a video] in a while, so we're kind of excited about that." Testament frontman Chuck Billy previously stated about "Native Blood", "[It's] basically a song about my Native heritage. It's almost like a protest song, that the Native Americans have a voice that needs to be heard that's the chorus of the song." "Native Blood" comes off Testament's new album, "Dark Roots Of Earth", which will be released in North America on July 31 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was produced, mixed and mastered by acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Nevermore, Accept, Exodus). Special bonus tracks were recorded, mixed and mastered by Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Exodus, Ted Nugent, Night Ranger) at his Trident Studios. The cover artwork for the effort (see below) was painted by Eliran Kantor, who has previously worked with Atheist, Sigh, Anacrusis and Gwar, among others. "Dark Roots Of Earth" track listing: 01. Rise Up 02. Native Blood 03. Dark Roots Of Earth 04. True American Hate 05. A Day In The Death 06. Cold Embrace 07. Man Kills Mankind 08. Throne Of Thorns 09. Last Stand For Independence
Thanks to Blabbermouth for the report.
