Man the new disk slays IMO. I don't know why you don't like it. The riffs and production is just great to me. There's little hints of classic Testament in there.Yeah a whole load in common which is cool. Our thrash taste is not so far different. Apart from your distaste for the big 4 bands releasing anything new and the ones underneath like Testament, Overkill, Exodus etc. Notice Anthrax didn't make my list either. I just can't get into them.Yeah, I have not liked much from modern Metallica, Megadeth, or Slayer, or Overkill. I own the two most recent Anthrax discs. Brotherhood of the Snake is the first Testament I have dissed in a while.
of the newer Exodus. So, a mixed bag, but I clearly prefer high quality rethrash bands to new output from many of the classic bands. That said, Death Angel, Kreator, Destruction, and others routinely still make my list these days.TKMD I couldn't get into. I don't know what happened with UD. I don't actually recall hearing it though I may have listened and dismissed it. When you go through the amount of shit we go through this can happen and I don't tend to note down my dismissals like you seem to do. Maybe I should do this for next year although it requires a bit more effort hehe.
Also, no The King Must Die - Murder All Doubt or Untimely Demise - Black Widow on your list? Sad, man.
