So if you give thrash metal a pair of balls this is what it sounds like eh?

I remember enjoying this album somewhat a while back, yet I don't recall it being this good. An 8 is starting to feel like an understatement.

Its quite good effort but its too noisy and without guitar melodies at all...

Awesome thrash. Personally, can't stand the vocals though. Would be nice as an instrumental!

I can't help but think that this album is a bit overrated. It's not bad by any means - quite the contrary - but like most of Testament's music, it just doesn't "reach" me. The sheer heaviness of the sound is certainly impressive, but the riffs tthemselves leave something to be desired, and I rarely find myself aghast with awesomeness. Another purely personal grievance is the lack of distinguishable basslines - as is too often the case, they are lost in the wall of sound - which is quite a waste of Steve Digiorgio's talent.

Highlights: "Riding the Snake", "Fall of Sipedome".

That's why I've always liked The New Order over The Gathering and The Legacy.

Their heaviest and best album. I love that this record hinges on death metal in several places.
