Editorial Reviews

"Live In London" is the documentation of a dream that long-time die-hard Testament fans have been waiting for: the reuniting of the band’s "classic" lineup. Featuring vocalist Chuck Billy, guitar virtuosos Eric Peterson and Alex Skolnick, bassist Greg Christian, and original drummer Louie Clemente (along with Testament & White Zombie alumnus John Tempesta as a second drummer), the band rips through classic Testament fan favorites in this show, shot in London earlier in 2005. This CD is the companion CD to the "Live In London" DVD.

Among the leaders of heavy metal over the past twenty years, Testament have always provided the rock solid proof that great song writing, regardless of genre, will always transcend time. Their crucial contributions to the early thrash metal surge of the mid to late 1980s helped to develop a sound that forever changed the face of heavy music and resonates just as loudly today. With all of their Bay Area peers either calling it a day or drastically altering their sound, Testament has remained a worldwide metal ambassador throughout the 1990’s and into the new century.

The great--but always underrated--Eighties thrash band return in full swing with their "classic"/original lineup (which consists of Chuck Billy, Alex Skolnick, Eric Peterson, Greg Christian, and Louie Clemente and John Tempesta). And, as this live album (which was recorded in London earlier this year) proves, Testament have barely missed a beat over their 22 years of existence (even though they've had several lineup changes).

Since axeman Alex Skolnick originally left the band because he didn't approve of the ultra-heavy direction Testament were headed, it's not surprising this concert set list doesn't include any songs from the group's newer albums (like "The Gathering," which fused death metal with thrash). But, other than missing a few new songs, "Live In London" is virtually the same as a Testament Greatest Hits album (only with clapping, cheering, and banter between songs). Every song on here is perfectly (or nearly perfectly) executed, and this album is so energetic, the only time it slows down is for track eleven ("The Legacy").

It's very exciting that Alex Skolnick (at least temporarily) rejoined the band, but it's even cooler that he's in top form, here. His searing riffs and wailing solos prove that he truly is master of his instrument. "Over The Wall" and "Raging Waters," which are scorching songs with blistering guitar work, maybe illustrate his talent best, and tracks one and three, "The Preacher" and "The Haunting" are two examples of his great leads.

"Practice What You Preach," "Let Go Of My World," and "Raging Waters" are the catchiest tunes on this album, but every other song is great, too.

I Only have the DVD of this show in London from these generals of Metal, the sound and the image is INCREDIBLE, Im glad to see these guys together again... but i must say even though seeing Clemente back behind the drums, Tempesta stole the show with Skolnick, this guy is a killer drummer and great for Testament and nuff said for Skolnick. But all the guys looked good and played a tremendous show.

Testament still rules and Chuck Billy sounds and looks better than ever!

this is great the originial band back together plus john Tempesta( I geuss louie coaldn't handle a full set?) excellent sound alex pull for all the old solo's classically and most without a tremlo bar.they proved that the old dogs dont need new tricks just balls to do it!Chuck was the least impressive member his voice seams to have suffered due to his health but he was 95 persent whole with some troubles.other wise the best I've seen testament in more than 10 years solid,hard and never faultering.I can't wait to see If they do a cd with this origial band again.

If you're already a Testament fan, then LoL is a great addition to your collection. If you're new to Testament, then this is a great way to sample their early material without buying all the CDs (see also: First Strike Still Deadly--a re-recording of material off their first two albums). This is a good, solid live album.

I am 37 years old and have been a fan since the beginning. Seen them many times live. They still have it. Every song sounds tight and true. Both drummers rock. The one song that I would have liked on this CD is Burnt Offerings, that is a smokin song man!! I have the DVD version also, equally awsome. Get the CD and DVD and Thrash Out!!
