Album Review

The first album Testament recorded without producer Alex Perialas, Souls of Black unites the thrashers with the better-known Michael Rosen. With Perialas having served Testament so well, many headbangers wondered how great an impact this change would have on the unit. But they needn't have worried — Testament sounds very much like it did on its three previous albums and is as heavy as ever. The band's outlook was still far from cheerful. While it had moved away from gothic and occult themes, Testament still sees the world as a hellish, insufferable place plagued by evil governments and the threat of another world war. Like Practice What You Preach, Souls isn't in a class with The New Order, but is nonetheless a welcome addition to Testament's generally rewarding catalog.

One of The Greatest Thrash Albums Of All Time

this album is one of, if not that, the greatest thrash album of all time. Souls of black is a killer son. so is malpractice. i love this. and if your a fan of old skool metallica, ( 1983- 1986), you will LOVE THIS.

it's a dream come true

this is for old school metallica fans all the way and they need to make a guitar hero testament

Testament has their own sound

I have been listening to heavy metal music for 34 years, I know we all have opinions and through time I have read reviews of Testament being overshadowed by Metallica time after time. I have nothing against Metallica, but for my ears there is no comparison between these two bands. They both have their own style, sound and themes to their music, to me they sound nothing alike, at all. Souls of Black is another great album from Testament, Testament stand on their own as an elite thrash band and are still proving it to this day, they are overshadowed by no other band.


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,...
