The Top Ten

1
Over 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!

2Souls of Black
intense intro and totally kiscks ass. like this song got me into thrash metal altogether. go souls of black! whoo
AMAZING INTRO. This was the first song I ever heard from this band and from then om I was hooked to it like crack.
Their best song! This bands thrashes really good!

rock2metal

[Newest]Kick ass intro.. Kick ass riffs.. Kick ass all the way...

3More Than Meets the Eye
doesn't need an explanation, its the best song
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!
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.

4Return to Serenity
Sweet solo - this song seems like the Testament equivalent of Nothing Else Matters.

petrucci75hammet

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

5Practice 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.
Listened to top 4 time and time again. love em but they can't touch this song. its up there with screaming for vengeance. one of my top 5 all time!
Brilliant song... First testament song I listened to! Like chuck billy's vocals and the amazing guitar work!

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!

I think this album is way better than the debut. First true testament album with chuck and alex contributing from the start. favorite song.

7Into 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.

8Electric 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!
Electric Crown is Testament's equivalent to Metallica's Ride The Lighting! IT'S AWESOME! M/

9Trial by Fire
its a trial by fire! such a good song. this song makes me like them almost even more then metallica. almost...
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

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

10D.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!
This song is the definition of thrash, it has some amazing vocals, great bass line, powerful double bass drumming and a kickass guitar to boot, this song honestly does deserve the number one spot on this list
[Newest]"This beats the others by a long margin!

The Contenders

11The Legacy

12Alone In The Dark
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

13Sins 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.

14First Strike Is Deadly

15Burnt Offerings
No reason, just a great song!
Brilliant riffs and solo. Very heavy indeed!
: )
Great man, just genius man like the riff, deh neh neh neh NEH NEH NEH NEH, just a first testament song I heard and one of my personal favorites

16Disciples 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!
What is dis song doing way down here. Everyelse is deaf

17True 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..

18Down for Life
One of the heaviest, most hard-hitting riffs I've ever heard.
Great music, heaven yeahh

19The 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.
Amazing emotional song! Why is it so low?

20Raging Waters

21Killing 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.

22Dark Roots of Earth
Awesome melody. Modern thrash combined with their good old old-school stuff turned out to be just EPIC!

23Rise Up
One of the most powerful testament's song. The most original thrash intro! Testament is like the wine.. Better as the years go by!

24Native Blood
An amazing song should be way higher then this please vote for it more people
Badass song.. the guitar duo is awesome... just love it...

25Face In the Sky

26Legions of the Dead

27The Persecuted Won't Forget
Freat intro riff. Should be higher up

28Eyes of Wrath

29A Day In the Death

303 Days In Darkness
There's a reason as to why this song is always performed live. It's just so good. The riffs and Chuck's vocals are amazing

31The Haunting
this is so much better than over the wall >:(

32Henchmen Ride

33Trail of Tears
How is this not higher? , I'm a massive testament fan and this song is seriously underrated, amazing songwriting by these guys not to mention the solo love the part where Peterson comes in for that epic part then Murphy totally melts your face off. At least their best song from Low and probably the 90s too, better than Electric Crown, Low, Eyes of Wrath and Return to Serenity for sure. Chuck's voice was probably in his prime here too, at least 'musically' anyway rather than shouting thrash, though his voice has always been amazing.
Such an awesome song from start to finish, I think it deserves to be a lot higher. I love all of Testament from The Legacy to Dark Roots.. They've done so many amazing tracks, this song would definitely be in my top 10 and on most days my top 5

34Low

35Musical Death
A very well composed instrumental, it has a very good structure with soft, heavy and fast parts. It was the first testament song I ever heard and loved it straight away, being a Metallica fan this band was easy to get into.

dragon13304

My favourite song, this song is very technical and also very melodic, this two things make this song a very beautiful one, such a MASTERPIECE.
My personal favorite. this song is an absolute masterpiece.

36The Preacher
Surprised how low this is. One of the songs in thrash as far as I'm concerned. Impressive pace & a sweet melody, with some of Chuck's best vocal work - Perfect for pitting.

37Sewn Shut Eyes

38Apocalyptic City
Not my favorite album but I think this is the best song out of all of them

LMARINE

My favorite Testament tune... I can feel the fire!

39Eerie Inhabitants

40Throne of Thorns

41The Evil Has Landed
, I can't get enough of this song! This is probably in my top 3 testament tunes. This is probably the next metal classic

42F.E.A.R.
Amazing song, deserves higher

amjad

FEAR IS ONLY WHAT YOU FEEL!

43The Formation of Damnation

44True Believer

45Dog Faced Gods
This is like the best thrash metal song ever! Amazing riffs, amazing solo, brutal vocal. Absolutely the best song by Testament. , /

46One Man's Fate

47So Many Lies
Everyone is somehow forgetting about the most intense Testament song of them, this has got everything and it brings a tear to my eye every time I listen to it. I suggest that Testament fans give this song another listen.
How are people not voting for this one. Please listen to it closely, you won't be disappointed.

48Blessed In Contempt

49Man Kills Mankind
Most underrated Testament song. The most awesome riffs and awesome vocals from chuck. I headbang to every second of this song and it sends chills down my spine every time chuck goes "winds of change keeps you searching for the truth"

HS_OUTDOOR_LIFE


50Demonic Refusal

51Rapid Fire

52A Day of Reckoning

54Ride

55Afterlife

Vote for this!

61Curse of the Legions of Death

62Hail Mary
The sick intro is magnificent. The vocals are quite fitting to the lyrics the awesome drums and the solo oh my God, how 's that not even top ten...

63Cold Embrace

64Deadline
In my opinion, One of Testament's most under-rated songs and my personal favorite off their album "The Ritual, I love the heavy guitar riffs and the vocal work done is very superb, this is one of the TRUE thrash metal songs I have heard... and I love it! How this is not ranked higher is way beyond me.
