Testament's back catalog acquired by Nuclear Blast from Atlantic Records

Testament Nuclear Blast

San Francisco Bay Area metal legends Testament have announced their recent acquisition by Nuclear Blast of their entire music catalog, including seminal albums The Legacy and The New Order. The acquisition took place just before their set at Hellfest in Clisson, France. As part of the deal, Testament have also signed on for a new three-album agreement with the record company.


Testament had previously signed on with Nuclear Blast back in 2008 with The Formation Of Damnation. With this new agreement, fans will now have access to the group's entire catalog on their digital streaming platforms of choice through Nuclear Blast. 

Singer Chuck Billy states:

"After a long history of making music and Testament teaming up with Nuclear Blast in 2008 with 'The Formation Of Damnation' to the current release 'Titans Of Creation', we have taken it to the next level and have reclaimed our six albums from Atlantic Records and have delivered them to Nuclear Blast to be re-released.
Along with the Atlantic catalog, Testament will sign a new three-album deal with Nuclear Blast worldwide. We are so grateful to be with the best heavy metal label in the world that will spread Testament's Legacy."

Guitarist Eric Peterson comments:

"We signed with Nuclear Blast back in 2008 and it'd been a perfect fit for us ever since then. Incidentally, our older catalog with Atlantic Records — 'The Legacy', 'The New Order', 'Practice What You Preach', 'Souls Of Black', 'The Ritual' and 'Low' — have returned to us and we feel it's a great new start to have Nuclear Blast release these albums again with some new unreleased artwork, photos, etc.
Also, we will be signing a new three-album deal with them! So the future for metal is looking very, very bright! Cheers!"

"Exodus got dropped for this?" Nah dude, Napalm is trying to build cred by throwing money at washed up bands to come over: Exodus, Devildriver, Cradle of Filth
