Best Testament Songs

The Top Ten

1 Over the Wall Over the Wall Cover Art

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

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

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.

2 Return to Serenity Return to Serenity Cover Art

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

Nothing Else Matters = Return to Serenity
The Unforgiven = The Legacy
Welcome Home (Sanitarium) = Trail of Tears - Alkadikce

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.

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

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

4 Souls of Black Souls of Black Cover Art

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!

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.

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 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!

This is the line between thrash and death metal. Truly awesome.

6 Into the Pit Into the Pit Cover Art

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:-)

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.

Epic Song much prefer the 2001 version though.

Best song from the New Order in my opinion

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

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).

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

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

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

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

9 Electric Crown Electric Crown Cover Art

One of the best rock songs. Like if you agree

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!

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

10 Disciples of a Watch Disciples of a Watch Cover Art

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

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

Really underrated

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

The Contenders

11 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.

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

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

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

12 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

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

This is one of their best should be on the top 5

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

13 Burnt Offerings Burnt Offerings Cover Art

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

Over the wall was good but this has badass guitars

Their best song... absolute classic

My favorite Testament song

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

It's so awesome how Gene's drumming remind you of Death. Listen to this it will remind u of Zombie Ritual. So cool.

This double solo(Alex/Eric) is SPECIAL man

15 First Strike Is Deadly First Strike Is Deadly Cover Art

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

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

"Fresh" - Rotten Tomatoes

Simple the best!

16 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

17 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.

18 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.

Great music, heaven yeahh

19 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.

20 Cold Embrace Cold Embrace Cover Art

Best song from the new album. It the best ballad from a band who wrote the book on thrash ballads sorry Metallica. Top 10 easy testaments not in the big 4 cause they stand alone #1

Great song,my favorite from the dark roots c d

21 Sins of Omission Sins of Omission Cover Art

great intro, great lyrics and great solo

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!

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 The Haunting The Haunting Cover Art

The legacy is their finest album.

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

24 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.
