"This is the sound followers of Full of Hell have come to expect. Merciless, fast, blasting, noisy, and loud. It's harsh grinding death at its finest, and at one track in, already a fitting follow-up to Trumpeting Ecstasy."
The Formation of Damnation is the 10th studio album by thrash metal band Testament, originally released in 2008. It was Testament's first album since 2001's First Strike Still Deadly and their first of new material since 1999's The Gathering.
Full of surprises and yet instantly recognizable as the work of metal's most idiosyncratic force, Immutable redefines and redesigns the Meshuggah sound across more than an hour of the most stimulating and absorbing music the band have ever made.
The legendary 2001 release has also been newly remastered from the original reels by Jason Livermore from The Blasting Room studio. Fourteen anthems of fast, heavy, irreverent, melodic, metallic punk rock with nods to mid-eighties political hardcore.
