Testament, ‘True American Hate’ – Best 2012 Metal Songs
Testament are a perfect example of what every thrash band should aspire to be. The veteran act is set to release their tenth studio album, ‘Dark Roots of Earth,’ on July 27, and if ‘True American Hate’ is any inclination of the album’s overall sound, it’s going to blow your head off.
Testament have assembled one of the greatest groups of metal musicians in history for ‘Dark Roots of Earth,’ consisting of legendary guitarists Alex Skolnick and Erik Peterson, bassist Greg Christian and the monstrous ‘Atomic Clock’ Gene Hoglan on drums. With vocalist Chuck Billy leading the pack, ‘True American Hate’ is the most heavy-as-hell, blistering and brain-melting thrash song of 2012.
