Testament was one of the first thrash metal bands to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1980's. Undoubtedly, they are the inventors of the thrash-metal wheel. Testament’s powerful sound, influence, and longevity make them one of the Top 5 All-Time Legendary Thrash Metal Bands, putting them in the company of Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, and Anthrax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just... awesome 22 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
One of the best thrash bands of all time have made a hell of a comeback with their most recent album, and the DVD showcases how good they really are. Stuff your Metallica, this is a band who've never given up their roots and instead have released one of the heaviest albums in their history.

They're brilliant live and if you've not been able to catch them before, this is an acceptable second best.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have ... Period 26 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This baby came fresh off the press, I had to wait 10 days but it the best show I have ever seen. All camera shots are in 1080p. Chuck Billy, Skulnik, Peterson. Rip your head clean off on this one. Very proud to own it and it gets loaned out to no one. This baby stays in the vault
Peace out!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Casing, great video and sound 20 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase

The only reason for the four stars is the short time of the concert and the lack of some classics.

The set list is basically the 2 lasted albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Testament - The Dark Roots Of Thrash Blu Ray 23 Feb 2014
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Dark Roots Of Thrash is a Live Blu-Ray from the American Bay Area Thrash Metal band Testament, capturing them on the touring cycle for their Dark Roots of Earth album. It’s a 19-track, 130-minute concert video filmed on February 15th, 2013, live at the Paramount Theater, Huntington, New York. (It is also available in other formats such as MP3, Vinyl, CD and DVD).

The concert features the Chuck Billy, Eric Peterson, Greg Christian, Alex Skolnick, Gene Hoglan line-up, playing a career spanning set featuring a fine balance of tracks from the 80s like ‘Over The Wall’ and The Haunting’, modern favourites like ‘Rise Up,’ and ‘More Than Meets The Eye’ and even some tracks from the middle of their career like ‘D.N.R’ and ‘Riding The Snake.’ They play to an enthusiastic and packed audience, with a professional stage show full of banners and strobes. Best of all, the band deliver a very good performance, packing a lot of energy and umph into the delivery. Testament really seem on top of their game here, and you won’t be disappointed at all by how the band play live. They absolutely nail it.

The sound quality and mix are top-notch, delivering a crunchy, metallic sound job that perfectly suits the band, nicely balancing all the instruments and not ignoring nor overemphasizing the crowd. The visuals are good too, the camera work and picture quality are great.

The only minor let-down is that the editing is a bit too enthusiastic, and uses tricks like turning to slow motion or black and white a little too often. Its not so distracting that it’s a deal-breaker, in fact if you don’t watch concert videos all the time you mightn’t even notice, but there was something that was just “off” enough to warrant comment.
