Brotherhood Of The Snake was recorded under the watchful eyes of producer Juan Urteaga (EXODUS, HEATHEN, MACHINE HEAD), guitarist Eric Peterson and singer Chuck Billy and was mixed and mastered by well-known metal producer Andy Sneap (ACCEPT, ARCH ENEMY, CRADLE OF FILTH, KREATOR, MACHINE HEAD, MEGADETH). Artwork was created by renowned artist Eliran Kantor (HATEBREED, SOULFLY, KATAKLYSM), whom the band worked with for The Dark Roots Of Earth.
Commented Peterson in an interview with Metal Maniac: “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.”
The songwriter also told Metal Forces 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 continued: “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.”
TESTAMENT will support Brotherhood Of The Snake on their European run with AMON AMARTH this fall.

WATCH the Official “The Chief” Commercial featuring Chuck Billy Here:
“The Chief” Herbal Vaporizer pen is easy to use – no coils, no trays or bowls to lose – in addition to being extremely effective and less expensive than other premium vaporizers. “The Chief” is ready to use in just 60 seconds and features three temperature settings (non-combustion) – Low: 365F, Medium: 400F, and High: 430F. One of the particularly anticipated features of “The Chief” is the uniquely high temperature settings – a feature that was created based on Lord Vaper Pens user feedback. All settings have been supercharged – the lowest setting has been increased to produce more vapor, but if users want more cloud, they can utilize the higher settings.
“I’m very excited to release “The Chief” herbal vaporizer from Lord Vaper Pens – we’ve been discussing the potential release of this product for quite some time and I’m glad to say it’s now a reality,” states “The Chief” signature series namesake Chuck Billy. “We’ve actually modified “The Chief” by turning up the temperature settings higher than what this style of vaporizer typically features. We’ve learned that these new settings are a desirable feature based on feedback fromLord Vaper Pens users. As someone who is in the business of giving music fans what they want – I feel it is important to translate that passion into this venture by listening closely to the consumer.”
Lord Vaper Pens CEO Adam Black adds, “Joining forces to collaborate on a product with Chuck is an honor for me, as I’ve been a long-time friend of his and a fan of TESTAMENT. They carry the torch, staying true to their thrash metal style and Chuck is a real Native American warrior, being a cancer survivor and all. He did sweat lodge rituals for treatment… I mean, how fucking dope is that? “The Chief” Herbal Vaporizer is a tribute to all those fighting the good fight out there.”
Chuck Billy and Lord Vaper Pens CEO Adam Black have been good friends for many years. In addition to being a lifelong metalhead and musician, Adam Black is an internet business entrepreneur with his hands in all things “tech”, making his involvement in the vaporizer industry a natural progression for him. Based on Chuck Billy’s mutual interest in the vaporizer industry, Adam and Chuck teamed up to start Lord Vaper Pens in thrash metal’s hometown of San Francisco, CA. What better place could there be to combine the heavy metal and vaporizer industries!
