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 Classic Testament 31 May 2011
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
1990's Souls Of Black is a truly enjoyable album from the bay area thrash band Testament. The album features fan favourite semi-ballad 'The Legacy,' and the famous title track 'Souls Of Black,' so right from the get-go you know that this album is worth your time.

Sometimes this album is overshadowed by the reputation of the band's previous three albums The Legacy, The New Order and Practice What You Preach, all of which are undeniable classic albums of the highest order, but if you enjoyed those records then you will surly enjoy Souls Of Black as well, continuing the melodic yet heavy thrash style from the Practice What You Preach album.

Opening, as all the best thrash albums do, with a short acoustic guitar intro into an out and out thrash number the album gets going to a strong start, with the very catchy 'Face In The Sky.'
From that point on the album never dips in quality, with songs like 'Love To Hate,' and 'One Man's Fate,' being as good as anything you'd expect from Testament.

Each area of the album is of the highest quality; the music is strong, the lyrics are strong and the production is strong.

In summary, don't miss out on Testament's incredible fourth studio album, critical claims that it sounds rushed just don't hold up against a fair and educated listen. If you like thrash, especially bay area thrash and especially by Testament, then Souls Of Black is an album you want to be listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic alert!... 19 May 2014
By Agma
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Always enjoy revisiting this incredible thrash metal album. "Souls of Black" is the fourth and probably best effort to pass from these legendary USA bay acts. This album's fairly overshadowed by the equally formidable "The new order"; but I struggle to see how the former is any better or indeed how this album could in any way be improved upon. Thrash perfection: Strong guitar:- riffs and lines; a permeable production, a clean & sweeping percussion, all topped with a scorching vocal, seals this one as one of the very best ever.

These 10 little ditties shout of a well thought-out songwriting, plus tons of superb and subtle nuances to-boot. I simply cannot recommend this album or band enough to anyone even remotely interested in classic rock or metal; as it's not just a blitzy excursion of speed, but a variant and highly refreshing piece of art as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars They're Bleeding so Black 10 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
The begining of the end an acoustic almost spanish sounding intro sweeping with ease into Face in the Sky which is one of the pioneering tracks on the album. This track sets you up for what to expect on the rest of the album with each track flowing seemlessly together. On Souls Of Black, Falling Fast & Absence Of Light Chuck Billy is on top vocal form with a haunting sustain in his voice accompanied by textured riffs 1/2, 3rd and 4th beat thrashy snares, and punchy basslines this album truly is in my personal opinion on par with 'Reign in Blood', 'Rust In Peace' and 'Master Of Puppets' as the be all and end all of the thrash metal movement

Truly Perfect album that flows like a reservoir

Worth a place in any metal fans collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Testament- Souls Of Black 7 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD includes the excellent ballad The Legacy, as well as some very godd tracks like 'Seven Days Of May' and 'Face In The Sky'.
Carrying on from the melodic metal that spawned Practice What You P{rach, this is more of the same, and is just as good.
More great singing from Chuck, and woderfully textured rythms and riffs for the songs.
Worth a place in any metal fans collection.
