Two titles by Bay Area metal icons Testament will be released on vinyl this coming September 24th via Prosthetic Records, soon before the group will tour North America alongside Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage.

The 2001 anthology “First Strike Still Deadly” features tracks from Testament’s iconic first two Megaforce/Atlantic albums, re-recorded with modern technology by four-fifths of group’s original lineup. The album has never been available on vinyl until now. Approximately 400 copies will be issued on 180-gram black vinyl. a limited-edition, 180-gram clear vinyl mail-order exclusive (100 copies) will also be offered.

Originally released in 1990 in EP format on vinyl and cassette, and finally released in its entirety by Prosthetic in 2009, “Live At Eindhoven ’87? - which captures Testament’s European coming-out party - will now be available on vinyl for the first time in its complete remastered form. In addition, the new LP layout, which features liner notes by guitarist Alex Skolnick, pays homage to the original EP artwork and includes never-before-seen pictures by photographer PG Brunelli.
