    Well, I am delighted. I wouldn't change a single chord or drum beat in this album, I believe what amazes me the most is that the band sounds incredibly prolific, and you wouldn't expect anybody to sound this fresh and full of ideas after 26 years. They just sound so damn tight and confident :headbang:

    I got it! Had to take a break from work to get to the only independent metal store near (that got the record 3 days before the "release date") me while it was still open, the regular rain turned into deluge on my way there, so my suit and shoes are all wet (luckily the album didn't get damaged), but it was totally worth it. I'm on my knees! Brilliant album start to finish, everything fits and I was awestruck from the get-go.

    Watching the DVD right now (I'd have played the shit out of the record first, but my wife wanted to check the dvd out so I gave it a shot, which is funny as I haven't still watched the FoD dvd - never really cared for stuff like that, but I guess I could now start to) and it's actually very good (although I would have chosen a better recorded show and perhaps other songs than those that have made it to just about every show in the past 20 years).

    Ok, time to get myself engrossed in this masterpiece.

    Enjoy it! I bought the 2 LP version via Amazon, and after I did I realized it will be released until August 15th... waiting 3 or 4 more weeks for the LP seems like a medieval torture now :cry: but probably I'll buy the CD/DVD version in one of our local metal stores (there are like 5 or 6 in my city).

    My Japanese pressing is now in the "shipping process" and I should get a notification tonight or tomorrow that it shipped. Also saw that the first pressings come with a sticker, so that's another bonus right there. I'm still shocked as hell though that the Japanese pressing is only coming with the re-recording of "Practice" (I tweeted Alex and he confirmed it is a re-recording) and not coming with any of the cover songs. Oh well, I still bought the US deluxe so I'm good on that front.

    A re-recording of PWYP? That sounds cool. Maybe they'll do a few more and put out an e.p. or something.

    I love it. The songs are strong, there's a lot of melody and heavy parts. I've always liked the ballads they've done so I was excited when they mentioned in interviews that there would be one. The album sounds better the more you listen to it. I think the only complaint I have is that the kick drums could be a bit higher in the mix. The drums don't sound quite as powerful as they could (aka The Gathering), but it's a minor complaint. The cover art is great and should make for some good shirts. I just hope we don't have another 4 year wait for the next record.

    I agree about the drums...and everything else lol
    I've been trying to find a poster of the cover,but so far no luck.When they first showed the cover I thought it was cool but
    it didn't feel like testament to me.Now I like it a lot.

    Yeah, the color scheme, with muted tones looks more in line with Dragonlord. Still, it's a beautiful cover.

    I don't about way off.It's a little off.It is really soon though.I'm sure they will get better as it goes on.I wish alex would hold his guitar right,maybe he wouldn't fudge so much and be cleaner.
    Thanks for posting it! I looked all last night and could only find Practice.

    Gene seems to be tearing it up. I wish they'd just put up the whole show.

    Yeah, a full poster, not the 11 x14. I'd like one of the Formation cover too.

    Ahh, I remember the days of having full blown posters of album art being available for sale. My friend had the Practice cover as a poster, I had Iron Maiden's 7th son and everyone back then had the Master of Puppets poster but that was back in the 80's when metal pretty much ruled the world and everyone was trying to make money off of it. Nowadays the only way you're getting it is by the 11x17 promo poster. Speaking of which, someone has the DROE signed promo poster on ebay and it's up to $36. Unbelievable.

    I remember having this one as well: http://www.ebay.com/itm/POSTER-MUSIC-TESTAMENT-IN-CONCERT-1990-FREE-SHIPPING-P7105-LW24-H-/150829981423?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item231e2adeef#ht_500wt_1361
