Best Testament Songs


The Top TenXW

1Over the Wall

It's the best song, way better than Souls Of Black

I just like this song. I've listened to other songs by Testament and I just keep coming back to this one.. :3 I guess I have good taste in music :P laugh out loud

Easily the best Testament song. It was great when it first came out and still kicks ass. Skolnick shredded this song as a teenager. Amazing!

When I first heard this song I though it's megadeth one, beautiful song.

3Return to Serenity

Isn't the tone of the guitar just perfect in this song. The solo totally melts my face and the voice just lingers in my head long after the song is over. Musically I would say that Testament have not made a better song. (With the exception of Musical Death maybe)

Sweet solo - this song seems like the Testament equivalent of Nothing Else Matters. - petrucci75hammet

The best Chorus ever made in the history of the thrash metal and the riff is AWESOME! Best Part of the song is the SOLO! And the best ever song from testament far better then over the wall.

One of my all time favorite solo, Alex Skolnick has an incredible feel for that kind of ballad songs.

4More Than Meets the Eye

As a bassist, I still feel that Souls of Black is highly overrated. I still love the song and always will. Testament's a GREAT band; as good as the Maiden crew. Great live, great studio. Gotta love them!

doesn't need an explanation, its the best song

I voted for More than Meets the Eye cus real favorite is DNR but it wasn't on the list... though More than Meets the Eye is a close 2nd for me (those 2 songs are actually quite similar).

One of my all time favorite songs, I have to vote for it.

5Electric Crown

Excellent song it got me into this band, the thing I most like about it is that they are iron maiden inspired. It is very rare to find such bands also try EDGUY.

If it wasn't for this song, I wouldn't even like testament!

Testament is so so much better than Metallica!

6The New Order

This song kicks so much ass the entire 4:27 seconds you hear it. Everything from the post- apocalyptic intro to the last epic chorus, it grabs you by the balls and you enjoy it. Best off the album by far.

This is their finest song from their finest album. The New Order nails it on all fronts. It even beats over the wall. Souls of Black and return to serenity are way too overrated.

This is my favorite song by them to be honest! I don't know y but I get this giant smile on my face whenever I hear it!

6? That is so low

7Practice What You Preach

this song is a true thrash metal classic and has an amazing solo. Souls of black and over the wall are good but nothing compared to practice what you preach.

Really hard to choose between this song, which has fantastic rhythm and tempo and strong lyrics, and Electric Crown, which has great variety. This was my favorite for the longest, so I will worship it here.

Brilliant song... First testament song I listened to! Like chuck billy's vocals and the amazing guitar work!

Love this song, awesome first song to the album

8D.N.R. (Do Not Resuscitate)

The gathering was an amazing album, and d.n.r. started it off greately

My favorite is More Than Meets the Eye, but it was already rated pretty high.D.N.R. needs some more love!

More than meets the eye is one of my favorite songs ever but this is almost just as amazing! I love the whole Gathering album and this one sticks out the most

Just started my journey with Testament, this song is intense, like wow intense, I love it

9The Legacy

This song is so damn good, one of their best!

What a ballad...
should be in top 5.

10Trial by Fire

its a trial by fire! such a good song. this song makes me like them almost even more then metallica. almost...

All I can say is "A TRIAL BY FIRE! "

My ears are melted when I first heard this song.
Brilliant intro, vocals, powerful thrash riff and a great solo
This song is definitely one of the best. - Srbin

The Contenders

11Into the Pit

Classic track from a classic album, however Testament has plenty of damn good or utterly outstanding "caught in the moshing pit" songs anyway in the whole genre (The New Order, True Believer, A Day In The Death to name my favorites). Testament, Overkill, Death Angel, Dark Angel, that's the Big 4 in my eyes... (not to mention last two studio releases by Death (Symbolic, TSOP) which are another pinnacle of progressive thrash metal together with hidden gen "Time Does Not Heal"! ). Anthrax, Megadeth, Metalica, Slayer are so-so rock bands, the pulled off some classic material, but also lots of crap, way more than this underrated (or just simply because of number of sold units) four way better bands than those fanboys and mags like rolling stone (Slash as best guitarist, laugh out loud! ) rave about.

Brutal, powerful, melodic. Combines the best elements of first three albums. Heard it live on Clash of the Titans and been amazed... For the next 23 years:-)

Epic Song much prefer the 2001 version though.

Best song from the New Order in my opinion

12Burnt Offerings

Over the wall was good but this has badass guitars

No reason, just a great song!

Brilliant riffs and solo. Very heavy indeed!
: )

13Alone In The Dark

Should be first! Great song with epic riff.

I really never like testament, I think alex es one of the greatest guitarrists ever, but for me is really difficult to understand the testament music, anywhay, this is a killer song

14Disciples of a Watch

One of my favorite songs of Testament! OBEY or I WILL BURN YOU TO THAT CROSS! Really good song, check it out!

This song must be included in d top 5! The solo is awesome!

15True American Hate

Very solid metal song from their new album, with a sweet guitar riffing and also nice drum beats!

My favorite is Practice What You Preach but I voted for this because it is so low. Need more stuff from Dark Roots of Earth

Whaat it is rated so low...
Its riff is great and the solo is must for every metalhead..

It's low because a lot of people that like metal only like their old music - Sabbath

16Sins of Omission

great intro, great lyrics and great solo - rock2metal

It is so dramatic and intense! It has a super intro and riffs and they all melt together in the mood, besides it just makes you wanna thrash it all!

The song that got me into Testament. Amazing work from Skolnick and Chuck. The perfect combination of heaviness and melody.

Fantastic riff that has such a great groove to it. Sins of Omission for the win!

17Down for Life

One of the heaviest, most hard-hitting riffs I've ever heard.

18The Ballad

Is one of the best songs of testament, as it has an excellent acoustic intro, an ending exploited, deserves to be in the top 10, as it is one of his songs more commercial.

Beautiful song, I may even say it's better than return to serenity

Amazing emotional song! Why is it so low?

19The Haunting

this is so much better than over the wall >:(

20Killing Season

Easily the best hook they have to offer. Up there with the best of the older bands: Metallica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath. Not my favourite band but this is easily on my iTunes replay.
