The LEGACY imploded after The Ritual and Testament was free to play the way they want when they released Low. Demonic is my absolute favorite album that TestAmenT has released.
I travelled to Cambridge Mass to see their concert on August 28th, 1997 at The Middle East Downstairs and it was one of the best.
I stayed late and met the band. Chuck, Eric, Derrick Ramirez, John Dette and Glen Alvelias.
I was talking with Derrick when I mentioned I was running a TestAmenT fan website. He told Chuck and Eric who hunted me down and they were pissed as they confronted me as they thought I was stealing from them. I assure them I was not making any money off them and was doing what I could to help them online. Within a year TestAment Legions website was born. I didn’t create it but can say I helped them gain an online presence.
This is another solid album where I do not dislike any songs. Jun-Jun and Distorted Lives are my favorites.
This is their only album considered to be Heavy/Death Metal and somewhat returned to their Thrash roots in the following albums.
Here is the track listing...
1. Demonic Refusal 2. The Burning Times 3. Together As One 4. Jun-Jun 5. John Doe 6. Murky Waters 7. Hatreds Rise 8. Distorted Lives 9. New Eyes Of Old 10. Ten Thousand Thrones 11. Nostrovia
Platty's Editor Note: I give this album 4 out of 5 squirts of my venom! Together as One!
