Listen To First Two Songs From Testament's Remastered Albums "The Legacy" and "The New Order

Iconic Bay Area thrash metal pioneers TESTAMENT are proud to announce an explosive celebration of the band’s enduring legacy and their influential presence in the thrash metal scene. On July 12th, TESTAMENT will release the remastered versions of their seminal albums The Legacy & The New Order both digitally and on vinyl via Nuclear Blast Records.

Chuck Billy
states, “When The Legacy and The New Order were first recorded we were new and had limited resources to record the albums being a young band. Now, with the remastering, fans will hear the albums in their signature sonic onslaught they were intended to be heard.”

Eric Peterson, “Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 37+ years since The Legacy and The New Order have been released. We were very young when we went to record these songs. It is long overdue for them to have a fresh remastered sound which we believe now are sonically killer. Also included in the final LP is special memorabilia from these two records including very rare, personal photos from that era including behind-the-scenes and record deal memos. We are very happy with the outcome. We hope you enjoy these too!” 

Today, the band offers fans previews of the remastered versions completed by Justin Shturtz at Sterling Sound via singles from each of the albums. ‘Over The Wall‘ from The Legacy (Remastered 2024) and Into The Pit‘ from The New Order (Remastered 2024) are now available to be streamed on all platforms as well as a video visualizer.
