Biography

Testament was one of the first thrash metal bands to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1980's. Undoubtedly, they are the inventors of the thrash-metal wheel. Testament’s powerful sound, influence, and longevity make them one of the Top 5 All-Time Legendary Thrash Metal Bands, putting them in the company of Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, and Anthrax.

Product Description

About the Artist

Bursting out of the Bay Area as Legacy in 1983 and later molding into the classic line-up that would be remembered for years, Testament was birthed in 1986 at a time when thrash metal was just beginning to change the American Musical landscape. With a handfull of timeless classics released through the 80s and 90s, Testament was one of the few bands that seemed to get angier, thrashier and more intense with each release. Case in point: the scathing guitar work, frantic rhythm section and ever-increasingly intense vocal deliveries of main-man Chuck Billy on two of Testaments's most brutal albums, 1997's Demonic and 1999's The Gathering.

Like I said I am not judging this album knowing the (old) testament...but now I am a true fan (of this cd) and EVERY METAL FAN SHOULD BUY THIS CD.
Jeff Boyden
This album is about showing others what a REAL solid metal band with REAL integrity is capable of if they choose to pursue a different avenue.

Okay, there is thrash metal, and there is death metal. There isn't really an inbetween. But for some reason (and I'm not complaining here) Testament disagrees with me and puts this thing out. I'm giving it a 4 instead of a 5 because I'm comparing it to The Gathering and Low (not to mention The New Order and First Strike Still Deadly, and the classics, they're all great, but the new stuff is different to a large extent).
This "thing" is one of the greatest metal albums I've ever heard. Easily one of my favorites. Okay, Low (the album right before this) was the rebirth of Testament, when they said F*** it! We're going to get heavier and heavier until the record companies can't stand us anymore! Then we will continue to get heavier after that!
It didn't take long for Atlantic to dump Testament, which is surprising, because Low is one of the best Testament Album to date, if not, THE best because of it's variety.
Demonic on the other hand, is a whole 'nother monster all together. This thing sounds exactly like the title reads, Demonic. Now the lyrics aren't "kill your mother, burn virgins and drink the blood of the innocent", but the music itself just brings images of dark carnage into your head. No easy feat with this crowd. Demonic will always remain in my carrying case because there is no other album like it.
Chuck's vocals are as brutal as they ever were, and they still had clarity. Eric's guitars were like an instrument of death, yet still fiercly melodic and catchy. The bass and drums only kicked the intensity up a few notches. I like it when I hear people complain about it not being all high pitched and full of 80's solos. It means Testament did it right. This wasn't designed to be an '80s album with solos and girly screams.

Yes it's a turn in a heavier direction for Testament, and less "thrashy". Nonetheles this is an excellent, catchy, brutal album with crushing production that is grossly underrated and overlooked. Heavy, memorable, melodic guitar hooks, punding rhythm section, excellent writing, and Chuck really bellowing from his guts, adds up to one of the most memorable albums from 1997, a metal masterpiece, meant to be cranked. If you didn't like it, you don't "get it". Amust-have for any Testament fan and for any fan of good, powerful, well-crafted metal with top-notch lyrics.

Even though this isn't my "favorite" Testament album it is definately one of the "HEAVIEST" slabs of metal (Death Metal) i have ever heard. Chuck Billy has one of the biggest badest Roars you will ever hear. Not only because he's like 6.4 and a huge MF, but also because he sings straight from the gut, NOT from the throat as with most DM vocalist's. Compared to Cannibal Corpse and Deicide he makes those boys sound like Mr.Rogers and Elmo. This album is not about "speed" although there are a few speedy moments here and there. Its just pure heavy in your face chunky as hell, balls metal. Demonic Refusal the title track stands out as the most memorable(and Gene Hoglans drumming kills),also John Doe, Burning Times, 10,000 Thrones, and Murky Waters. But as a whole this album just pounds. Buy it and prepare to hear Satan himself belching through your speakers with his mighty band from hell.

What can I say, this album rips !!!!!!! Demonic is a perfect title for this album because it sounds Demonic. It might be hard to swallow at first but belive me, it grows on you like cancer. I think this album scared off some Testament fans cause of the way Chuck Billy sings on it. Most of the album his voice sounds like death metal but the funny thing is that it works, it sounds great. Highlites for me on this album are the opening track "Demonic Refusal" "Burning Times" "John Doe" and "Hatdreds Rise". I you like metal and Testament, don't let this one pass you by. One more thing,if you want to pick up an even better album, get their next album "The Gathering" it's a classic !!!!!!! D. N. R. !!!!!!!!!!

Demonic is Testament their seventh album. In 1997 I bought this album for my brother, who until then was a huge fan of the band. I have always appreciated the band, but was never a huge fan. My brother did not like the album, so he gave it to me. After listening to the album a few times, I really started to like the album. I personally think it is their best album, although I understand that not many people share this view.

Only vocalist Chuck Billy and guitarist Eric Peterson are left of the line-up from their debut-album The Legacy. On Demonic Gene Hoglan plays drums and Derrick Ramirez, a former Testament member from the early days, plays bass. Demonic sounds rather different than early records. Testament is known for its fast and technical Thrash Metal with superb solos. Demonic is a mainly mid-tempo album with fewer solos. Although the solos are not bad they cannot compete with solos from former Testament guitarists Alex Skolnick and James Murphy. The solos are slower and sound more dissonant.

Vocalist Chuck Billy used to sing with raw but melodic vocals. On Demonic he mainly uses Death Metal vocals. I personally think that he should have used his "normal" vocals more. "John Doe" is one of the few songs with "normal" vocals. The music is slower, more raw and less melodic than in the past, "Demonic Refusal", "Murky Waters" and "Ten Thousand Thrones" are the only fast song on the album. The atmosphere on the album is darker than on earlier records. Demonic is a great album but could have been better when the vocalist would switch more often between "normal" and Death Metal vocals, and the album would have had more fast songs.

My favourite songs are:
· "John Doe": The "normal" vocals work so well on the song.
· "Demonic Refusal": A fast brutal song. Check out the cool intro.
· "Burning Times": I really like the chorus.

This is "remastered"...is it noticably different or just a fancy way of...
It was supposedly remastered before, but it's possible it could have been remastered again. I'm not into this album, but if you like it, I say go for it.
