Album Review

On The Ritual, Testament moved away from their trademark speed-metal and began exploring slower, heavier territory. Instead of sounding like a retreat, the group sounds re-energized by the change in direction, as guitarist Alex Skolnick spits out a series of brutal riffs that manage to form memorable, powerful songs.

Customer Reviews


Omg £1.00 odd for an album mmm 0.79 p for a track or all 11 for £1.19 mmm what to do what to do ???

quality metal cheap price

I bought this album when i had just started to listen to Testament and was very pleased with it for the very cheap price. Amazing value for money! i mean 11 decent tracks for £1.19, what else can i say?


£1.19 for a whole Testament album! While this album may not be as good or as thrashy as their latest, mind-blowig album "The Formation of Damnation", "The Ritual" is still a brilliant album packed with fantastic riffs and solos. Think Metallica's "Black Album" crossed with Judas Priest and Saxon and something a little bit more sinister :P A great buy for any Testament fan and, at this price, any metal fan!


Formed: 1985 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Testament were the biggest thrash metal band never to reach the platinum plateau. In fact, the San Francisco quintet seemed on the verge of challenging Metallica (their most obvious influence) in the melodic thrash sweepstakes, but their run toward the top was eventually derailed by inconsistency, bad business decisions, and the genre's dwindling appeal. Unable to change with the times like Metallica, Testament quickly faded from sight in the early '90s, but have remained active and very popular...
