The first track starts well and settles into a pretty catchy riff I had it in my head the other day and Billy's vocals are aggressive but he's still singing and not just barking. The way they covered the song doesn't really suit the band as it is awkwardly heavy, and yet tries to sound classy and soft, basically failing in all terms.

His drum fills and blast beats fit brilliantly in the mix. And yes, exactly, this Erick solo is unbroken here and sounds superb! Gene Hoglan is a great drummer and eafth a solid foundation for DRoE.

Peterson has come up with some incredible riffs, at best his work is catchy, complex, and heavy. The deluxe edition cover songs vary in quality. One orots I can't get over about Testament is how Chuck has gone through cancer, and still sounds so fucking brilliant. This maturity and ability to keep an old format fresh is what makes Testament so good, and it makes me wonder why they weren't as successful as some of their peers. The band decided to record a ballad.

If you aren't convinced, then that's your loss because Testament does everything right in this whole eartb As the album wears on though, this becomes a dakr harder og do, as the songs kind of bleed together making it hard to tell which one is which unless you actually go back and listen to each song individually.

The resurrection of this most frenetic style of heavy metal has seen many new bands attempt their hand at mixing the great bands of yesteryear with a modern sensibility, while many stalwarts of the genre's golden age in the s and early 90s came back to life or shed their mid-to-late 90s groovy skin to return to what made them famous in the first place.

This is another of my favourite tracks from the album. This is really another superb Testament album that you will be listening to in the future.

It doesn't help that the lyrics are usually pretty bad. The band may release more really good tasting records, but usually by the fifth they have completely burned out their thrash bonfire. Though the lyrics are often too simplistic and cliche ridden, one can tell there's a serious personal investment in a piece like "Native Blood", and most of the songs cover a more broad spectrum of sociopolitical unrest that most of us can probably relate to, regardless of our color and history, par for the course when one glimpses back through even the earlier Testament records like The New Order, Souls of Black and The Ritual.
