Testament guitarist Eric Peterson has confirmed that their 11th album Brotherhood Of The Snake will be released in October.

He says they finished recording the album before they headed out on their current European tour and reports fans can expect an “epic” record.

Peterson tells Metal Maniac Video Magazine, “The new record will be out on October 28th. It’s finished, recorded, done and now on its way to Andy Sneap to get mixed.”

Asked what fans can expect from the follow-up to 2012’s Dark Roots Of Earth, Peterson says, “Really good metal – it’s going to be a really good record.

It’s very diverse, epic – there’s nothing on there that breathes commercial and I think for 30 years of recording music and trying different formulas, I think we’ve found a formula that is very metal.”

Earlier this year, Testament frontman Chuck Billy said the Brotherhood Of The Snake was inspired by the connection between religion and aliens.

  1. I’m looking forward to this release by Testament. In my opinion, this band can still bring on quality thrash music at their age, unlike a more notable thrash band from their era. I’ve really enjoyed Testament’s last couple of releases, so I hope the band continues along that same trek.

  2. YES more awesomeness from one of the real thrash metal bands along with Overkill,who get heavier each album,Testament remains at the forefront of what Heavy Metal can and should be. As rattlehead above says unlike Selloutaca.
