Thrash metal band Testament plans to release a new album, their 12th studio record, in 2019. But first — the tours! Testament were one of a number of bands supporting Slayer on their farewell tour. That tour spilled over into a headlining run for tourmates Lamb of God — and Testament is along for the ride!
Testament opened Lamb of God at The Fillmore Silver Spring on Monday, and Paivi got the pix to prove it.
In 2016, Anthrax celebrated 35 years as a band, and released For All Kings, their 11th studio album, via Megaforce/Nuclear Blast. The album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart, and #9 on the Top 200, becoming Anthrax’s highest-charting album in more than two decades.
Blasting out of that commercial success, Anthrax have been touring hard for the past two years, recently opening the farewell tour for their metal comrades in Slayer, and now doing the same for Lamb of God. Anthrax lit up The Fillmore Silver Spring on Monday in their tour with Lamb of God, and Paivi shot the show.
Over the summer, Lamb of God supported metal legends Slayer on a farewell tour that visited the DC metro area.

Lamb of God thrashed the hell outta The Fillmore, and Paivi captured the show on film.
