  TESTAMENT ANNOUNCED AS SPECIAL GUESTS AT BLOODSTOCK FOR ONLY UK SHOW OF 2012
15th February 2012

bloodstock open air



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.

With tickets selling faster than ever before, Bloodstock 2012 is destined for a sell-out this year. Over 100 bands - the majority of which are exclusive appearances - and a ticket price of only £115 for four days of Metal magic including camping - Bloodstock offers Metalheads the most attractive ticket in the UK and you can get your tickets by clicking here

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston.
