Testament: "True American Hate"

Testament had some lean years in the late 90's - death metal experimentation and here-today-gone-tomorrow record labels didn't help - but the band improbably rebounded in 2008 with one of the strongest albums of their career, The Formation of Damnation. The returns of Alex Skolnick and Greg Christian seemed to make all the difference in the world, and "True American Hate" seems to continue in that tradition of quality and a willingness to focus on the band's strengths rather than trend chasing.

Dark Roots of Earth comes out July 27. Word.
