With a line up boasting the likes of Behemoth, Alice Cooper, Iced Earth, Sepultura, Paradise Lost, Watain, Dimmu Borgir, Hatbreed, and many many more, a special guest slot would have to be pretty special to be worthy of it's special tag. With that in mind, Bloodstock Open Air is extremely proud to present Testament's only UK show of 2012, at the very special guest slot before the Saturday night headliners at this year's festival.
One of the first thrash bands to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area, debut album 'The Legacy' put Testament at the forefront of the thrash Metal scene, where they have remained for the best part of thirty years.

Says guitarist Eric Peterson: "We're excited to play the Bloodstock Festival again! this time with some new material to play! Can't wait for the UK to hear our 'Dark Roots Of Earth!' See Ya!"
With nine studio albums under their belt - two of which boasting top 40 chart positions in the UK - and a new album on its way, Testament come armed with no shortage of classic thrash anthems. One of the few bands to consistently put out genuinely exciting and fresh material throughout their career, the promise of hearing songs 'The Legacy', 'The New Order', 'Practice What You Preach', 'Souls Of Black', 'The Ritual', 'Low', 'Demonic', 'The Gathering' and 'The Formation Of Damnation' - as well as new material - is enough to whet any headbangers appetite, and one many will find impossible to resist.
