I know you were punning there Jabroni, but it's still a valid question.

So let's talk Testament. I'm wasn't a fan of Formation of Damnation. I like just about everything they've done besides that. You can split them into 2 eras. The Legacy-The Ritual is "old Testament." The Ritual is alright. You can understand what they were trying to do, having seen the success of Metallica's Black Album. Practice What You Preach and Souls of Black are a bit inconsistent, but still good. Low-Dark Roots of the Earth is "new Testament". Low is my personal favorite. Demonic is interesting going much more death metal. The Gathering is great, but put on a higher pedestal than I put it. Dark Roots reminds me of Pantera.

And the best thing they ever put out was First Strike Still Deadly, which has the maturity of albums like Low and The Gathering, but is the music from The Legacy and New Order. Those re-recordings are phenomenal.
