Testament have released a new video trailer for their forthcoming album 'Brotherhood Of The Snake' where they discuss some of the lyrical themes that inspired the effort.

The album, the veteran thrash band's 12th studio release, it set to hit stores on October 28th and guitarist Eric Peterson has previously discussed the musical direction of the new title. He said, "It's very diverse, but it's very epic. There's nothing on there that breeds commercial. And I think for thirty years of recording music and trying different formulas and stuff, I think we've found a formula that is very metal. I think for the metal fan that is looking for something for the nook and crannies not just your normal, 'Oh, it's got a thrash beat and a riff.' There's a lot going on here."

He expanded in another interview, "It's different. This one is more thrash. I mean, this has got some of the fastest stuff that we have ever played. Usually, we have one or two thrash songs, and then we have some mid-tempo, and then we have a slow, heavy one, and then up-tempo kind of stuff. Half of the new record is thrash, which we've never done before."

He added: "It's kind of like 'Demonic' and 'The Gathering', but a little bit wiser, I think. Chuck's not singing so death. I mean, he does some death stuff but he's singing more like he did on the last record and then with the craziness of 'The Gathering' or even heavy stuff like 'Demonic'." Watch the new trailer here.
