Come on... They were awesome and maybe you remember they were the intro song for MTV'S head bangers ball... They were heavy, fun and crunchy

66TestamentTestament is an American thrash metal band from Berkeley, California. Formed in 1983 under the name Legacy, the band consists of vocalist Chuck Billy, guitarists Eric Peterson and Alex Skolnick, bassist Steve DiGiorgio and drummer Gene Hoglan.

Sweat and blood has been put into their songs. Incredibly melodic, loud and heavy. What they can produce is absolutely beautiful. Everyone needs to take a listen at least once. #1 for me.

Listen to When we pretend that we are dead

77The Tea Party

Way underrated, probably because they never were marketed/distributed to US radio and markets. Huge Down Under and in Canada. Compelling blend of Jim Morrison mystique, Jimmy Page riffs, and solid musicianship not afraid to use exotic instruments.

Brilliant. Essentially influential and stood alone during the 90's... Should be well into the top 20
