Interesting call. I'd amend to "modern"... [bands] trying their best.

Fates Warning, Cradle of Filth and Psychotic Waltz are three old school bands that have released some of their best work during the modern era.

I'm still not completely sold on that Psy Waltz album but it is definitely on my November revisit list before I go about finalizing End of Year et ceteras

i mean we can say the production on this is boring and that their first 2 albums sounded like they were recorded in a dustbin

Everything after Midian is pretty boring until you get to their two most recent albums. Hawks loves all their albums because he's Hawks.

I like their modern production. I can agree that their debut lacks some polish, but I can deal with the sound on their second release.

Yeah, that one and the newest are definitely some of the best. They even rival the classics, and they're definitely easier to get into because Dani has toned down the high pitched vocals. The remastered version of Cruelty and the Beast is worth checking for sure. That album is their number one album, IMO, now that it doesn't sound like shit.

this album definitely sounds better than the previous two but it's still a little boring sounding? formation had a great sound for the more modern testament style but everything after sounds a bit dull and not as rich sounding

From the last 3, for me, this one is the least inspired and at the same still a good album because Testament rarely do wrong.

"Fates Warning, Cradle of Filth and Psychotic Waltz are three old school bands that have released some of their best work during the modern era."

Mekong Delta and Helstar too, especially with Vampiro for the latter. The former's undergone some changes but have still managed to keep their core sound intact which is pretty impressive all things considered.

"My top Testment albums (for context): The Ritual, Practice What You Preach, The Formation of Damnation, The Gathering, and then this one."



Immediately invalidates the review lol.

Anyway, listened to this...it's average.

This is the first Testament album in a long time that I LOVE, rather than only *like*.
Solid review with which I agree with very much, especially that last paragraph about the band's post-revival albums all being kinda formulaic, but still really solid, with this last one in particular managing to veer the most out of the comfort zone template.
Disagree with the choice of top track (Curse of Osiris) though.

btw I can't help but notice... There's no way Testament didn't take a note or two from these Neo-Thrash young'uns that have wreaked havoc in the past decade.
To me it's clear that for this album they definitely took inspiration from Havok, Lich King, Fog of War, Vektor and what-have-you else.

All's good tho! Gotta have that inter-generational exchange for a healthy creative process and even health in general!
