5.0 out of 5 stars Testament never disappointed, 21 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gathering (Audio CD)
I love every Testament album, except Demonic which was more Death.
I love of course this album, great vocals by Chuck and nothing else i should add.
Just put it in your stereo and prepare for headbang. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Metal albums of the 90's., 19 Jun 2009

This review is from: The Gathering (Audio CD)
I dug this album out recently, and transferred it to my iPod. What an absolute monster. This is the album that Metallica should put on before they start recording new material. It would send them back to the golf course, let's put it that way.
'The Gathering' has everything: Catchy vocals, massive, catchy riffs, and amazing drumming from Slayer's Dave Lombardo. Testament are an exception to the rule, in that I think they are BETTER without their founding member and axe-god Alex Skolnick. His rejoining for the most recent LP, 'Formation of Damnation', is proof that they were better off without him. THAT is a good album, but this is GREAT, and on here the Petersen / Murphy / DiGiorgio axis never fails to astonish at every opportunity. Maybe Alex has been spending too much time with Rodrigo Y Gabriela, and forgotten that Post-Thrash needs a dash of extra brutality from the halcion days of 80's thrash..?
But that's a debate for elsewhere. The great thing about Testament, is that you get the intensity and power of modern metal, but you also the old-school songwriting skills, which current trendy bands like Arch Enemy simply do not have.
Several tracks off this album could have been chart hits, were we living in an alternate reality with truly democratic radio stations.
All killer, no filler. Awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Track listings wrong, 19 Jan 2005

This review is from: Gathering [VINYL] (Vinyl)
The tracks listed here are not on Switch of the Seasons. This is a very good album containing, for when it came out, new material not on previous albums. It is pretty rare, though, I understand.
