Looking forward to this, FoD was pretty strong album. Oh yeah, McDonald's sucks! A lot!

Artwork looks nice, hopefully the album will be good as well.

First of all, it's funny that I see a lot of the staffers bashing Testament and calling their stuff cheap and redundant, yet I've seen a lot of staffers praising the recent Overkill album as well.

You can mark me down as someone who will likely end up feeling the same about this album and Overkill's latest. It's weird to bash one band and not the other for doing what they're doing.

Well, thanks for at least being consistent

Not a huge Testament fan, but that is some killer artwork.

Pomposity =/= Objectivity, but you and Daniel can tell each other otherwise over your expensive candlelit dinner together

95% of what I eat are raw vegetables and fruit, so they don't qualify for a candlelight dinner

On topic: I listened to Formation of Damnation yesterday to check again if it's still as bad as it was before. It is. So uninspired, forced and dull. Not a single riff sticks in my head, completely nothing. Give me "Apocalyptic City" any day of the week, keep everything after "The New Order" away from me

With pleasurel! But I'll return to listen to "The New Order" and "The Legacy" sometimes too...

I just wish they'd go back to the style of Demonic.

vocal wise yes, but instrumentally they should rather mix Gathering with a sped up version of Low

Yes, I agree.
