Nine years has passed since these legends of thrash metal last released a studio album, and so after an undeniably long wait Testament return in glorious form with "The Formation Of Damnation", picking up where "The Gathering" left off almost a century ago. The album has the Testament stamp all over it, this is thrash metal like Testament always deliver with both more melodic and modern elements as well as a slight peek back to how things were done in the late-eighties.

Testament is the biggest band to emerge form the second wave of thrash metal in the mid 80's and is also perhaps the only band from that wave still making superb music for its dedicated fans. Testament is the only band that I know that's still making convincing thrash metal not to mention that they are also a Semi-Death Metal band. I say so because they are perhaps the only band that I know (apart from Trivium) that combines death and thrash metal elements to near-perfect harmony(although Trivium are not yet that good at it).

I think the length hurts this album, but I think it's a good comeback after such a hiatus.

I initially gave it a 7, then bumped it to an 8. I don't know how to rate this because it's awesome when I'm driving or working on the computer, but giving it a solo listen bores me sometimes.

We need to be able to rate by .5!!

I actually use to hate most of the songs on this album, but that all changed when I saw testament play The Formation Of Damnation Live at the Cow Palace
This is in my opinion their best album hands down.
