Testament – ‘The New Order’

Release Date
05/05/1988
Publisher
Atlantic/Megaforce Records
Genre
Thrash Metal

This afternoon in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting out ‘The New Order’, the 1988 second album from Testament. Even though there had less than a year between ‘The Legacy’ and ‘The New Order’, Testament already showed significant progress as songwriters as they crafted excellent thrash metal that got the listeners to get up off their arse and get into the pit. This was the sound of Chuck Billy, Alex Skolnick and co. firing on all cylinders as they battered their way out of the Bay Area and into the thrash metal mainstream. So this afternoon, dig this album out and crank it up loud…. OBEY!
