    i don't really listen to them anymore, but this song is the jam:



    contains the hardest riff Jeff Loomis ever wrote. Warrell goes ham on it as well

    Personally i'd recommend The Politics of Ecstasy, Dreaming Neon Black, and Dead Heart In A Dead World.

    They don't have an album i won't listen to though.

    Seeing as you like Priest, check this cover out. Especially the screaming near the end.

    I remember hearing nevermore for the first time and thought it sounded like contradictions collapse with power metal vocals

    If you liked This Godless Endeavor, you will probably like the two preceding albums, Enemies of Reality (REMIX) and Dead Heart in a Dead World. Both those albums have Jeff using 7 strings and have Andy Sneap producing so they're similar, sonically speaking.

    Favorites from those 3 albums:
    • The Heart Collector
    • Believe in Nothing
    • Engines of Hate
    • Enemies of Reality
    • I, Voyager
    • Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday
    • Born
    • The Final Product
    • Your Acid Words
    • This Godless Endeavor

    I also liked Politics of Ecstasy and Dreaming Neon Black, but prefer the later releases.

    Give Dreaming Neon Black more of a chance and I guarantee it will grow on you. The only issue I have with it is that the title track feels almost like a crescendo of the album though it's relatively early, making the latter part feel a tad draggy but the songs are brilliant.

    Ugh, and I just remembered that Warrel Dane AND Tim Calvert, who played on this one, have passed.

    This Godless Endeavour, Enemies of Reality, Dreaming Neon Black. Godless Endeavour is their best album imo.
    Basically just listen to all their albums lol

    It's crazy to me that Dead Heart is almost 20 years old. I remember buying Testament's The Gathering and recieving Dead Heart as a gift within a month of each other. It was like a one-two punch of Andy Sneap production combined with bands at the height of their writing power.

    There are no bad choices here.

    Unless you listen to the original mix of Enemies of Reality. That's a mistake, make sure you get the remastered version.

    Music wise I think I like politics of ecstasy the most, but Dead Heart is just such a banger of an album. Their peak album. Riffs for days. People praise Jeff for being an incredible lead player, but his riff writing needs more credit
