Sometimes, you just don't know
How low... how low you can go...

That above, ladies and gentlemen, is the first line of chorus that Chuck Billy sings on the album. Fitting lyrics that are perhaps unconsciously put, it defines to me the anger that Testament had had with themselves after releasing their weakest works to date: Souls Of Black and the infamous The Ritual. They were over and through with it all; commercially-wise it was not as satisfying and did not fulfill expectations, it kind-of alienated the fans and even the members themselves did not like all that buzz. So, with guitar wonder Alex Skolnick being the only one with the thumbs-up for their last few works, he was gone soon after and shocking replacement James Murphy (known from giants Obituary and Death) came to star.

Im actually surprise about all the reviews I've read about this album.. the ratings are not Low XD ...get it?.....

Considering the change in direction and all the groove/hardcorish elements, I've expect this album to be largely hated. But well.. it's good anyway, and looks like a perfect collection of solos (typical of Testament) does make everyone happy regardless the changes in overall sonority.

Btw.. ''Dog Faced Gods'' rules.

thanks to videos I saw more and understand band was great before this album. I made mistakes getting many albums, now I am not collector, I don't think own all disco is good
