    Wow it sounds incredible! I don't hear AC DC at all actually its very unique to me. I love that low tuned snare too!

    The CD was produced, mixed and mastered by acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap, who has basically worked with everyone.

    OH GOD! Can't wait til this is out :p

    After listening to that... Especially the solos.. I could swear that's the Kemper and not a miced tube amp. Only reason I say that, is especially noticeable on the pinch harmonics in the solos.
    Would have Andy's clarity on WHAT the Kemper was used on etc!

    wow, I dunno if its just the low quality file or the cans Im listening on but this sounds really dry and different than anything Ive heard from Andy in a long time. I like the mix, just not what I expected at all. Song is cool. Wish I had a great turntable to justify getting the mega deluxe kill you LP package.

    I agree. This is VERY dry in comparison to the last few records that's for sure. You especially hear it on Chucks voice. But I love it, fucking great! Gives it a more raw, energetic BAND vibe in my opinion. Something a band like Testament definitely benefit from!

    Digging the song a lot. It alone slays the entirety of Formation.

    I really hopes that isn't the best song on album, because I waited for it so badly. But if it is, than still best album of this year for me is overkill's electric age

    ^ I'm really not sure what more you could possibly want / expect from a Testament song

    Fuck YES! This shit's heavy as fuck. I def liked Formation a ton but I can already see this album fucking ruining that shit if it stays like this.

    I'm guessing this is Gene on drums. Really curious to hear a song with Chris on there.

    Liking the song!
