I pre-ordered it earlier this week, and got notified that it shipped today.

With limited touring available, the band is gonna really need more physical units and merch sold to survive. Unfortunately, some will probably struggle or call it quits if they can’t earn enough money to make it worth the effort.

I just hope the iconic and still relevant bands like Overkill, Testament and Flotsam & Jetsam can survive this terrible economic environment.

I was going to buy the album either way, but that's the best way to support bands during these hard times. Lucky for me, my workplace is paying me during the downtime.

I had pre-ordered it but then canceled it because I was getting in my head about only spending money on essentials right now, in anticipation of economic issues.

I will probably end up ordering it though at some point.

Listening on Spotify now. It's so good.

I will stop ordering any new stuff for the time being too. I already have some old orders pending arrival.

But i will definitely buy this one at some point.

Testament music is essential to help me forget my problems.

It has a double LP and a CD, a large booklet and a lenticular cover. No bonus tracks or anything unfortunately.

I hope this outbreak doesn't last much longer. I need to get back to my daily routine and start buying music again.

I've got one CD on the way, Metal Church's new one. I preordered it before I was forced to stop working.

Yeah, looks like a lot of the Testament band and crew are getting hit by this.

I am ordering this CD right now.

No delays or problems with deliveries around here.

I like that cover art a lot. Watercolour/oil (style) painting is much more appealing than those modern computerized deep-shadowed dynamic-effect laden blush cut-paste photoshop headaches. They are all too samey. This is much more pleasing to the eye.

I much prefer hand drawn to CGI. Too often the shades and the effects kill the actual big image the cover is trying to portray.

See:

vs

Also, the Titans of Creation album cover reminds me of this statue in my home town called the Three Smiths:

Yeah, I like art. Album cover art has always been a big part of metal music, and I feel the synthetic photoshop era has not been kind to it.

Am I the only one not much impressed with their last few albums? I mean, they're good albums, but I feel like the last album to have really catchy songs was The Gathering. Those songs got stuck in my head, but everything since just kind of comes and goes. Good, but doesn't sink its teeth in quite like the stuff on The Gathering and earlier material.

Basically everything since Skolnick's return, which is weird to me.
Seven Seals is one of the best Testament songs, and thus one of the best metal songs, ever.

And "Neptune's Spear" is even better.

And those are just tracks from the last album. Formation of Damnation is even better. Puts 80's Metallica to shame. Just thrash metal bliss, nothing less.

I bought it the day it came out. Great album! I'm not going to let a virus, or anything, change my way of living. I'm still buying every new release that comes out that I want. I just bought the new Metal Church yesterday in fact. I also just bought the rereleased Retroactive Barren Cross CD's the other day. Well worth the dough for them for sure.

Formation of Damnation is excellent indeed headbanger.

Smooth grooves! I actually like this a bit more than Brotherhood of the Snake, which was also a fantastic album.

I'm with Lari, this is a classic winner.

Got mine in yesterday. Came as a surprise as Amazon said it wouldn't come in for another three weeks. I make my playlists a week in advance so it didn't make this round but next week I plan on adding it as part of a Testament marathon.

I haven't been disappointed with a Testament release since Demonic and that was just because at the time it came out I was burned out on death metal. I still consider it their weakest, but I don't hate it.

Looking forward to the marathon!

I haven't gotten around to picking this up yet, but have the album a listen this morning on YouTube. Really good sounding album. Can't wait to pick it up.

Since I got the word that I start back to work on Monday, I decided to order it through Amazon. Although I won't be getting the cd for a couple of weeks, according to them, I do have the digital copy of it.
