Album Review

The gothic and occult themes associated with The Legacy and The New Order aren't nearly as prevalent on Testament's third album, Practice What You Preach. Instead, the thrash metallers place more emphasis on subjects like freedom of choice, political corruption, hypocrisy, and the effects of greed and avarice. One of Testament's most informative songs, the disturbing "Greenhouse Effect" takes a painfully honest look at environmental destruction. But while the band shifts its focus lyrically, its musical approach is much the same — under the direction of metal producer Alex Perialas, Testament takes no prisoners and remains unapologetically abrasive.

Testament to GREATNESS

One of the all time greatest thrash masters...every album is awesome...

Now with that being said I want to point out how far ahead of thinking they were on "Greenhouse Effect"...all you hear now-a-days is about the environment...and Testament was singing about it back in 1989! I bow to the greatness of Testament one of my favorite bands!


The best song on here is practice what you preach. Some other good ones are the ballad, sins of omission and blessed in comtempt. You will not be dissapointed with this album. All songs are good old thrash!


These guys sound like Megadeth and older Metallica fused together.Love it.


Formed: 1985 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Rock

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

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,...
