Last October, TESTAMENTguitarist Eric Petersonconfirmed to MetalMasterKingdom.com that the band is planning to begin work on the follow-up to 2020’s “Titans Of Creation” album for a 2023 release. “We actually have a ballad that we wrote,” he revealed. “We were gonna put it on the last record. We actually recorded some stuff, and it just wasn’t ready. We were listening to it, going, ‘Nah…’ There was a lot of elements that weren’t in there; we kind of threw it together. But this time I think we’ve got something really cool.”
TESTAMENT released a “Titans Of Creation” video album in September via Nuclear Blast. 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 were made 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.
“Titans Of Creation” was produced by Billy and Petersonwhile 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.
