See ya’ in the PIT!”
Brotherhood Of The Snake was recorded under the watchful eyes of producer Juan Urteaga (EXODUS, HEATHEN, MACHINE HEAD), guitarist Eric Peterson and singer Chuck Billy and was mixed and mastered by well-known metal producer Andy Sneap (ACCEPT, ARCH ENEMY, CRADLE OF FILTH, KREATOR, MACHINE HEAD, MEGADETH). Artwork was created by renowned artist Eliran Kantor, whom the band worked with for The Dark Roots Of Earth.
“Brotherhood of the Snake is Testament’s best record in recent memory and among their best ever. The intensity and aggression are well-balanced by incredible individual performances and a surprising amount of melody.” –Metalholic
