Testament – Signs Of Chaos: The Best Of Testament

A major Taranna score…

Since seeing Testament as the first opening act at the Slayer show back in May, I’ve been on the hunt for more of their stuff. I loved their sound! This Hits set seemed a great way to grab up the stuff I oughta hear first, then I can branch off into the albums from here.

This is 15 tracks of pure Testament mayhem, and two covers: Scorpions’ The Sails Of Charon, and Aerosmith’s Draw The Line.

If you know Testament, you know what I heard here (\m/  \m/). If not, well, let’s just say that when Brother Craig was considering the Big Four of thrash metal (Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth), he said Testament was there and a huge part of all that scene and it oughta be the Big Five. Fair point, really!

Hit It Or Quit It? Hit! \m/  \m/

  1. Agree. Testament’s influence on metal gets overlooked far too often. They have a great swing which a lot of metal bands lack.


  2. Proper metal!


  3. They’ve definitely got a “big 5” worthy font!


  4. I fully agree with you that Testament should be included in that group.


  5. My Big Five has just got Anthrax in it twice.
