Best Testament Songs

The Top Ten
1 Over the Wall Over the Wall Cover Art

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!

We can all agree that these is one of Testament's best song. Simply amazing.

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

Best part is when he shouts: "Hey! That bacon's mine! "
Anyone else?

2 Return to Serenity Return to Serenity Cover Art

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.

This is one of the first Testament song I heard, and since then it's one of my favourites. I have to say that it sounds a bit like megadeth, but well, how cares? Beautiful song.

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

3 Practice What You Preach Practice What You Preach Cover Art

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!

Classic Thrash Song, just amazing.

This song is so epic.

4 Souls of Black Souls of Black Cover Art

Possibly my favorite song by them because of the intro which was just absolutely killer, I've listened to Over the Wall but it sounds just like any other Thrash song but this one is different.

Chuck, is an inspiration, the band is inspiring. Souls of black kicks ass but, doesn't stand alone. All of Testaments songs mean something to who ever listens to them. They are songs of freedom and heart. BB

AMAZING INTRO. This was the first song I ever heard from this band and from then om I was hooked to it like crack.

What I love about Testament is how they combine Thrash Metal and very heavy riffs with a Rock n' Roll feeling, this song reflects a heavy old shcool rock n roll influence and is so thrasher at the same time. Better than Over the wall in my opinion.

5 The New Order The New Order Cover Art

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 the line between thrash and death metal. Truly awesome.

Great intro and solo. Best album and song.

6 Into the Pit Into the Pit Cover Art

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.

7 More Than Meets the Eye More Than Meets the Eye Cover Art

Outstanding song; catchy; heavy; great riffs; great musicianship. From great album. Most of the songs quoted on the list are from
Their earlier period - testament have put out 3/4 brilliant albums, with excellent songs, since 2000.

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!

Absolutely great return to form with the entire Formation album! This song absolutely slays along with For the Glory of... At the beginning!

Quite clearly this is Testaments best song... This should be higher than one. This should be ranked 0.5! First song I heard by them, got me addicted.

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

Death metal meets thrash on this masterpiece. Lombardo's drums are incredible on this song and Chuck Billy's growls are fantastic.

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

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

9 Electric Crown Electric Crown Cover Art

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.

Killer tune! They need to expand the big 4 to the big 6. +testament, and overkill. I'd give my lefty, and maybe both to see that show!

This and Signs of Chaos are epic! The thrash equivalents of Ides of March/Wrathchild or Hellion/Electric Eye!

They really should play this live again!
The Live in London version is brilliant, as is the album version.

10 Disciples of a Watch Disciples of a Watch Cover Art

Solid track from Testament! I'd totally recommand this to any metalhead. The beginning of the thrashing part is surprising and delicious and it goes way better the more it's listened.
I just don't get the persons who consider "More Than Meets the Eye", "Return to Serenity" and "Souls of Black" as Testament's best songs ever... Like, have they ever listened to other songs than those? Seriously?

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

Agreed, this is old school. Very awesome. This is probably my favorite

The Contenders
11 The Legacy The Legacy Cover Art

There is a ridiculous gap between the quality of Testament's ballads and non-ballads. If I wasn't afraid of being called a fake metal fan, I would bravely state that the ballad is my favorite from all 5, maybe 4 Testament albums that have one. I can't understand how probably the best ballad maker in metal despite having only six ballads can't create a bit more innovative or unique, and most importantly, diverse material in the thrash genre.

If Testament only wrote ballads and nothing else they might be one of the ten best bands ever

Absolutely amazing song. Lyrics are solid and Eric Peterson and skolnik are shredders. One of the greatest solos of all time

Equally as awesome is trail of tears from low. Kick ass song.

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

12 Burnt Offerings Burnt Offerings Cover Art

The best Testament song... one of the best thrash metal songs ever!

Brilliant riffs and solo. Very heavy indeed!
: )

Their best song... absolute classic

No reason, just a great song!

13 Trial by Fire Trial by Fire Cover Art

This song has arguably the most melodic intro in the history of heavy metal, and then it kicks ass for 3 more minutes. Only downfall is that it is too short.

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.

My personal favorite of Testament's music. Really great song overall.

14 True American Hate True American Hate Cover Art

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..

15 First Strike Is Deadly First Strike Is Deadly Cover Art

How is this number 28?! This is the song that got me into the band and the solo is one of the most eargasmic things you can ever hear in your life

Unbelievable that songs of the Legacy, their best album are so low ranked!

Simple the best!

16 Legions of the Dead Legions of the Dead Cover Art

This song = Death Metal, or at least very close to it, the riff is really Death Metalike and Chuck Billy is growling here. This is one of my favorites from Testament for that reason.

17 Down for Life Down for Life Cover Art

This album kills! When it came out it was one of the hardest albums around. Almost like death metal vocals, but not.

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

18 The Preacher The Preacher Cover Art

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.

19 Alone in the Dark Alone in the Dark Cover Art

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

20 Sins of Omission Sins of Omission Cover Art

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!

This should be in the top 3. It's way better than Over The Wall.

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!

21 The Haunting The Haunting Cover Art

The legacy is their finest album.

22 Trail of Tears Trail of Tears Cover Art

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

Why isn't this considered a testament classic? This song is beautiful, I didn't think that they could give such great guitar work without skolnick but Peterson totally pulled it off

Not the greatest album but this song is so amazing!

23 Killing Season Killing Season Cover Art

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.

24 Eerie Inhabitants Eerie Inhabitants Cover Art

It sets the stage for one of the greatest albums in metal. My favorite is The New Order but I had to vote for Eerie Inhabitants just because of how wrong it is for this song to be at 38.
