Dark Roots of Earth songs Product Information
Dark Roots of Earth album for sale by Testament was released Jul 31, 2012 on the EMI label. Forget Metallica, forget Megadeth, Anthrax, and even Slayer! The most formidable on-stage thrash metal powerhouse of 2011 was arguably the (mostly) reconstituted classic lineup of Testament: singer Chuck Billy, guitarists Alex Skolnick, and Eric Peterson, plus returning bass badass Greg Christian and occasional drummer Gene Hoglan, who probably tops most predecessors on the stool, most would agree.

Dark Roots of Earth CD music is a 2-disc set with 18 songs. ...See Full Description

Dark Roots of Earth CD music Testament have been on and off with several incarnations since their seminal debut "The Legacy" I started with them awkwardly with "Low" (still my favorite and best album IMO), and subsequently got back and forth with the catalog.
