4.0 out of 5 stars The New Order, 5 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The New Order (Audio CD)
For the most part there are two types of Metal fans, those that like Testament and those who haven't heard much Testament. Obviously there are a few exceptions, but it illustrates a point, Testament are the kind of band to make loyal fans out of the vast majority of people who listen to them. Should you be reading this and wondering whether or not to try out Testament, I would strongly recommend that you do as you will almost certainly become a life long fan.

Its pretty difficult to argue with The New Order really, any album that contains 'Into The Pit,''Disciples of the Watch,' and 'The Preacher,' is pretty much guaranteed, to put a smile on the face of any right minded metal fan, being as they are three of the absolute best Thrash Metal songs ever recorded. Should you be in any doubt as to whether or not to buy this album, then listen to any one of those songs, which will likely provide you with the all the convincing necessary.

To be considered anything other than wonderful whilst containing the aforementioned tracks, the album would have to be pretty damn poor for the rest of the run-time and thankfully The New Order is anything but poor. The album opens with the effective 'Eerie Inhabitants,' a straight up Thrash number with a clean beginning for added interest, contains a number of pummeling thrash classics, two relatively interesting instrumentals and a heavied-up Areosmith cover to prevent the album being too repetitive.

Overall, the music is hard and direct Thrash Metal, with enough variety to escape tedium while still remaining true to the formula. The vocals as always are top quality and the level of musicianship is very high. There is a reason this album keeps turning up in lists of The Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time after all.

If you have an interest in Thrash Metal then you really should check out Testament, and The New Order is a very good album to try.
