Essential Metal: Testament – The Gathering

What’s up, guys! Hope you’re having a great Labor Day weekend.

Today I’m super excited to resurrect my Essential Metal series, in which I dissect Metal albums from all subgenres that I believe every metalhead MUST own! This time around it’s Testament’s stone cold classic The Gathering – which, as I explain in detail, is a modern Thrash Metal benchmark that directly paved the way for The New Wave of American Heavy Metal, as well as supercharged Thrash revivalists like Vektor.

I also dig briefly into some Big Four talk, as well as Testament’s broader history as one of the so-called “Next Big Four”. You don’t want to miss this one! Check it out here:
