Musica Metal has posted video footage of veteran San Francisco Bay Area metallers TESTAMENT performing the songs "Practice What You Preach" and "The New Order" at the Gods of Metal festival on June 28, 2008 in Bologna, Italy. Watch the clip below.
TESTAMENT was honored with the "Album of the Year" Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award for its latest album, "The Formation of Damnation". TESTAMENT beat out the other worthy contenders in this category: ATREYU, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, CHILDREN OF BODOM and DOWN.
The Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2008 awards ceremony was held on June 16 at the IndigO2 (O2 Arena) in London, UK.
"The Formation of Damnation" debuted at #59 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has sold 34,000 copies in the United Staes since its April 29 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "The Formation of Damnation" is TESTAMENT's highest-charting release in the band's 24-year history. The album also dominated at radio, holding the #1 spot on both CMJ and FMQB for several consecutive weeks.
Currently playing the festival circuit in Europe, TESTAMENT will play eight shows with JUDAS PRIEST in late July before kicking off the Metal Masters Tour on August 6 in Camden, New Jersey with JUDAS PRIEST, HEAVEN AND HELL and MOTÖRHEAD.
