Rated 5 out of 5 by jamiecfc1 from Superb concert by criminally underrated band To my shame I had never seen Testament before, although I can counter that with the fact that they rarely play UK dates, a fact touched on several times by the band themselves! Testament are cut from similar cloth to Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth and have just finished touring with Slayer, so a quiet night out it was never going to be. There were two support bands, Broken Bones from Manchester who, sadly, suffered from a terrible sound quality which thankfully improved with the second support Savage Messiah, from London. I'd never heard them before but was very impressed, think Maiden with a hit of Euro rock thrown in, at speed, and you wouldn't be far off. Sadly their set was very short, shame because I would have liked to have seen more. Which brings me to Testament. I bought my first album of theirs around 1988, and their sound is a little darker than most thrash bands, they had a bit of an off period in the late 90s and early 2000's but the last two albums, Formation of Damnation and Dark Roots of Earth were excellent, as was the live album Dark Roots of Thrash, which is also one of the best live DVD/bluray's I've seen, both in content and recording quality. So the concert. Being right at the front the view was excellent, and the band were in brilliant form. Chuck Billy, the singer, is a bear of a man with a unique vocal style, and the rest of the band are brilliant musicians, especially Steve DiGiorgio who has the most unusual bass playing styles I've ever seen. It's just fingers everywhere, in perfect time.. Alex and Eric, the guitarists, give it plenty of welly and the atomic clock that is Gene Hoglan is a beast. He is enormous, and you have to feel sorry for his poor drums and he beats the life out of them. The music? Well if you've seen the live DVD or heard the album, it's almost the same set. Some old stuff (I.e 80's thrash), some newer stuff, and a little inbetween. Apparently there's a new album on the way, and I can't wait. There's very few bands I would go out of my way to see, but this concert was superb. Loud, hot and everything a metal gig should be.
