Testament April 8, 2017 San Antonio Aztec Theater

Three entwining snake heads stare at you as eagerly await the onslaught that is about to begin.  Touring in support of their latest album Brotherhood Of The Snake, Testament are still one of the premier thrash metal bands, even after 30 years. No one can emulate their sound, even though countless bands try to follow suit.  Testament's sound gets in your blood as soon as they take the stage and gives you what you've been craving.  As a fan of many decades, I feel like a giddy school kid, finally seeing live performances of so many songs that I grew up listening to.  Sheer excitement and joy can be seen throughout the crowd as well as knowing that I have a smile from ear to ear.  I am thankful to partake and be part of this Legion.  All of this is possible with the make-up of such talented musicians of: Eric Peterson, Chuck Billy, Alex Skolnick, Gene Hoglan and Steve Di Giorgio.  Each a master of their craft that are single handedly responsible for thrash being alive and well today. With Testament at the reigns, I have no fear that it will continue for many more years to come.
