    Threw on some Testament yesterday. Brotherhood of the Snake is definitely a solid album. Better than Dark Roots of the Earth.

    testament does not get enough love around here. I think they're the most consistent of the bay area thrash bands.

    Definitely. I'm a huge fan. They've also been on a roll since Skolnick rejoined. Not that their 90s albums were bad (The Gathering, which I'm listening to right now is rifftastic!).

    I do kind of wish Skolnick would go back to the sort of neoclassical shreddy solos he played on their early albums. His solos on Dark Roots and Brotherhood of the Snek are kind of generic thrash metal solos (like if Kirk Hammet could actually play guitar).

    Souls of Black and The Ritual are kind of "meh" to me, but both still have great songs (ex. Electric Crown). Demonic is alright for what it is.

    IMHO they're the best band to come out of the Bay Area scene. Sure, they don't have the virtuoso-esque shredding of Friedman on Megadeth's Rust in Peace but Megadeth has also had a bunch of stinker albums. Testament is consistently good without just releasing the same album every two years (Overkill, anyone? Not Bay Area, but you get the idea).

    I don't know if DGD gets a lot of love around here, but this is a fantastic ending to a solid album. I'm loving all the lyrical references to their older material.

    Totally agree about them being the best Bay area thrash band.
    I think it says a lot when I can basically sit down and listen to their whole discography without wanting to skip stuff like I do with metallica/megadeth/slayer. Definitely doesn't hurt that Chuck Billy's voice is still awesome after all these years.

    High quality riffs, shame the EP was only released on vinyl.

    I'm back to "The Future In Whose Eyes?" by Sikth. That is, for my tastes, a near-perfect album.

    DT gone U2! I still love this song even though it's so radio-friendly compared to most of their stuff.

    Dewd fucking Extremity is rad AF!!! Love what that band is releasing.

    Just picked up this. I’ve always heard of Timeghoul, listened to their stuff on YouTube and was tripped out. It sits up there with Obscura by Gorguts for off the wall ground breaking material. Their influence is uncanny. This is a good grab:

    So, every few days i get random songs stuck in my head. Found myself singing the chorus around the house in full nasal yarl. Plus I add the verbalized "Chunka chunka" break. The wife and kids are nonplussed.



    Satan's on his way, indeed. Fun ass album.
