    Practice What You Preach is one of my favorite albums of all time! Love me some new Testament. Is Skolnick back?

    Sweet! He was one of the reasons I picked up guitar. I always preferred him over Hammett or Mustaine/Chris Poland... I know who I'm seeing when they come to town.

    Freakin' awesome, can't wait for this! Love me some Testament. And I agree, of all the 80s thrash bands, Skolnick was my favorite lead player.

    For my money, The Ritual had some of the hands-down best lead guitar of that era.

    Nice Cernunnos on the album cover too! :yesway:

    It's like if the Deku tree had a three way with Satan and Jeff Bridges...


    Bring on the album!

    (I like the cover)

    not really a fan of the album art honestly.

    but HRNNG more Testament is ALWAYS a good thing.

    Need me some more Gene Hoglan in my life

    Me neither. I miss the old days of non-digital album art.

    Beyond excited for this album, though. Those three non-Skolnick albums were big downers for me, and then The Formation of Damnation was a superb return to form. Hoping this is another masterpiece :yesway:

    I am convinced that this will be great! Apparently Chris Adler is drumming on two tracks.
