Testament Release 'The Pale King' Video


(Metal Hammer) Testament have released a video for their track The Pale King. The song features on the thrash veterans' 11th album Brotherhood Of The Snake, which launched last month.

Guitarist Eric Peterson, who wrote the music for the track, says of the promo: "Secret societies, unknown other worlds, and superstitions mark this, our 13th music video.

"We wanted to do a band performance video with abstract ancient alien visuals, which we are set in. I think it's easily one of our best so far, and it was a lot of fun to make and work with Nuclear Bast recent newcomer, director Tommy Jones."

Earlier this month, vocalist Chuck Billy gave TeamRock more details on The Pale King. "It's basically about an alien king, Anu, coming down and making humans what he wants them to be," Billy said.

"It came out pretty different to what Eric originally had in mind, but I write the lyrics so I turned it into the alien concept. Musically, like all of them, there isn't a regular pattern. Lot of different riffs and patterns together. But it works." Watch the video here.
