    As we know guys of TestAmenT participated in many tribute albums, it`obvious they deserve to be honoured same way. Who know maybe in near future there`ll be such an LP approved by the band itself...

    While waiting for that moment to come, I`d like to ask you for dropping here you picks. Nevermind if it`s possible or not...

    MINE IS:

    Practice What You Preach by MetallicA

    Why? Great riff, great vocal parts totally different melody than riff and we all know that Hetfield is the master of playing one melody and singing another one same time. Besides he`s a great singer. I think that Kirk would finally show his skills and reach high level while playing this classic Alex` lead part.
    Rhythm section would keep this shit tight and Tru would put some of his bass accent on this one as well.
    Besides, every cover done by MetallicA sounds like it`s their song and that`s the most important thing in doing covers.

    Electric Crown by ApocalypticA

    Great song for a great and unique band - there`s nothing more to say ;)

    Souls Of Black by Infectious Grooves feat. Aladdin Sarssipius

    Yeah, they`d do that in funky with Alex` lead part played on bass by youngster STeve Brunner :tickled:

    I like these a lot, as well as the whole idea of such an album.
    As for my suggestions- I'll copy what I've written on another board. It's long, but I'd just thought I'd make a list for a 2CD tribute album.

    Metallica- Sins Of Omission
    Megadeth- Electric Crown
    Exodus- Souls Of Black
    Anthrax- Hail Mary
    Overkill- Falling Fast
    Death Angel- Nightmare
    Iron Maiden- As The Seasons Grey
    Machine Head- Chasing Fear
    Vader- Over The Wall
    Kreator- Disciples Of The Watch
    Dark Angel- D.N.R.
    Savatage- The Legacy
    Heathen- Do Or Die
    Morbid Angel- Ten Thousand Thrones
    Judas Priest- New Order
    Helloween- Alone In The Dark
    Iced Earth- Raging Waters
    Sodom- C.O.T.L.O.D.
    Manowar- The Ritual
    Annihilator- Eerie Inhabitants
    Vio-lence- Down For Life
    Laaz Rockit- Time Is Coming
    Destruction- The Haunting
    Sepultura- Low
    Dimmu Borgir- Fall Of Sipledome
    Emperor- Legions Of The Dead
    Dream Theater- Return To Serenity
    Venom- Blessed In Contempt
    Entombed- Dog Faced Gods

    That's sounds like an awesome list, but Vio-lence shouldn't be in there unless they find someone that sings better than Sean Kilian. I can't image Vader doing a melodic thrash song like Over The Wall, the Peter in that band can't sound any vocal chord(Blind Guardian would be perfect for that song). Other than that, Living Sacrifice covering Demonic Refusal should be added to the list. Pantera would have been good for PC, but sadly some stupid fucker killed Dimebag and all hope for reunion is now gone.

    woha!
    Can't agree with ya mate! I think that HPOE made great call, and Vader making this track, would be very interesting. And.... when Over The Wall is melodic?

    BTW Over The Wall rules, one of the greatest! :headbang: :worship:

    I'm a Vader fan, but Over The Wall isn't the right Testament song for them. They may know how to play the song instrumentally, but Peter Wiwczarek wouldn't able to do any of those high-pitched screams that Chuck Billy did on that track. Peter is a grunter, he's not a singer, no offense to him.

    There's already a Testament tribute album, it's called JUMP IN THE PIT with 11 tracks performed by little known bands. I don't have it myself but I've heard it's halfway decent as far as tribute albums go. Also there's one track that is mixed and mastered by James Murphy (ex Testament guitarist).
    The notion that Metallica or some of the other well known bands mentioned would participate in a Testament tribute album is really just a fantasy I think.

    Yeah, right...Lars probably thinks that Metallica is too big to do tribute albums now, arrogant little asshole...nice to dream though.

    Well, he thinks Metallica too big to even make music. He just uses some stupid documentary about their personal lives to get the band back in the spot light for a few weeks.

    Sun O))) - Alone in the Dark
    That would be sick, since Sun O))) is fast as hell.

    Honestly though, I think Testament does their stuff the best, I wouldn't really want any to hear other bands doing it because for the most part I don't think it would be pulled off good.

    But when you do cover, you don't have to (and it would be better if you don't) make it as much as possible same, as the oryginal... The best made cover, is when the band keeps the atmosphere of the track, but make it with it's own style (f.e. Motorhead did Whiplash on Metallic Attack). So I think that Peter don't have to get those lines like Chuck (nobody could - Chuck is irreplaceable), but it would be great to hear his vocal this track, the way he screams. Of course not only vocal - every part would be interesting.
    I think it's a nice idea.

    I hear you, but I just thought it would be too easy and predictable to have them cover a newer TestAmenT song and I think Over The Wall could be transformed into an interesting death metal song (without losing its thrashiness)- it would sound very different (especially vocal-wise, of course), though.
