The original post

Im surprised theres no thread about this band yet... Just goes to show how under-rated they are.... They certainly deserve more recognition... They have many top quality thrash albums/tracks... 'The Legacy'/Alone In The Dark..... 'The New Order'/Into The Pit & Trial By Fire....

My favourite Testament track is Alone In The Dark followed closely by a host of others including Disciples Of The Watch and Burnt Offering...

So, what does everyone else think of this band?

Does anyone have a recommeded album??


Their debut The Legacy is by their best album and not a single one of their other albums comes close. The The New Order, even though it is a mixed bag, but still superior to anything they released after that one.

Actually only The Legacy and The New Order are Testament albums one needs to hear.

This pretty much sums it up, though I wouldnt competely agree with the last sentence.

If one is into what Metallica and Megadeth were doing in the 90's, Practice is easily an album to hear. Regardless, I'd say The Gathering is a good comeback and the best one of the later years of Testament, It's still worth checking out just for the level of musicianship present here.

I also like Low, The Ritual and Dark Root Of Earth.

Practice What You Preach has some good moments too.

Practice is one of my favorites by them, along with their first two.
I have an original press on vinyl singed by Alex Skolnick when I met him.
Really nice guy, really good guitarist as well.

Excellent thrashers! been following them since The Legacy. I guess it's like any artist of any genre: they have their good and not so good albums, but as a whole their a pretty good thrash outfit.
If there were a big five, they would deserve to be the fifth.
