Testament-Brotherhood of the Snake
Ooofff. This one is a sucker punch to the gut. Testament has not been messing around over the past few albums. It’s rare for a band this far into their career to come out of the gates this much of a snarling, hungry beast as Testament has on this album. This platter just operates with a confidence earned through slogging through the pits for close to 30 y ears. Peterson’s guitar riffs grab you by the throat and Skolnick’s leads add a classiness to the proceedings. This is thrash in its purest form. Pull up a seat and enjoy a slab of Metal’s finest.
The attached track just gives me the warm and fuzzies. Pure aggression in musical form.
