Thrash titans Testament
have officially unveiled the track listing of their upcoming live record "Dark Roots of Thrash
Scheduled for October 15 release through Nuclear Blast Records, the album will be available as a DVD and double CD set featuring the band charging through 19 tracks.
The concert was recorded back in mid-February in Huntington, New York and was previously announced with official "Rise Up
Meanwhile, frontman Chuck Billy
discussed the influence young thrash bands have on Testament, pointing out they help the veterans keep their sound fresh.
"We get inspired by what’s going on today, and new, up-and-coming thrash-style bands,"
he told Loud Magazine
. "They've been influenced off us, and they're creating their own sound and style. And it's kind of like a full circle; take a little bit of what they're doing today and putting it in our music. I think that's what actually keeps our music not sounding like a 30-year-old band, and sounds still kind of fresh and modern."
As for the new album, the group is planing to hit the studio
and unleash their new effort sometime during 2014.
"We are going to start writing and recording early next year,"
Billy told Rock Overdose
. "It think that January to April, we're gonna start writing and recording, so the new album will be out next year."
