Yep. While a lot of other thrash bands were struggling to find their sound in the 1990s, Testament just got heavier and heavier. They released a fucking death metal album for fucks sake, and one of the best thrash metal albums ever with The Gathering.
I mean Exodus struggled in the '90s too, but once the new century came around they fired on all fucking cylinders.
Mid to late 90's Testament just kick serious ar$e, and The Gathering especially deserves to be held up there with the best 80's albums by the self proclaimed "Big 4".
Testament in the 90's and Exodus in the early 00's really showed the "Big 4" that Thrash was still very much alive and kicking
I'd like to add Overkill to this group. Still putting out some of their best stuff this far into the game.
the gathering needs its own thread to go over just how good that one was!
Barely any new age retro thrash revival bands stay relevant while only the old guns like Testament, Overkill and Exodus actually refining thrash without sounding like they are copying themselves
Just wanted to add that I'm also of the belief that the gathering is one of the sickest metal albums ever.
I think Annihilator would be a good addition to my list as well. They've had a consistent output of kickass thrash for decades.
Exodus is the shit! Fucking awesome music and musicians!
Allways enjoyed this jam
^ probably Zetro's best vocal performance ever, that and Shroud of Urine... awful lyrics though
Is anybody else disappointed we never got a Slayer album with Gary co-writing?
Not really. I always thought Slayer had better material than Exodus anyway so I don't think I would have been into that. I'm also a little bit skeptical of musicians writing for bands other than their main bands. Wouldn't they keep the best stuff for their own bands?
