Throne of Thorns

I have to say, Testament really brought it with this new record.  The lyrics are silly metal shit, some songs worse than others, but the music is some of the best thrash in years.  They got Gene "The Atomic Clock" Hoglan playing the drums, and the Skolnick/Petersen guitar attack is clicking like it should in its 4th decade.

This song continues to blow me away.  Don't let the cute intro fool you.  It's heavy.

My favorite part comes in around 2:09 after the little spoken word part. I love the way Chuck Billy growls out "Crimson lust!"

Yeah, I'm a dork, but that's thrash metal at it's finest.
