Testament - Over the Wall (1987)
Testament was one of my favorite bands through middle school and early high school. Between probably over-listening to them (I have fond memories of listening to my Practice What You Preach tape on repeat [auto-reverse] while playing King's Quest VI) and exposure to other bands and music, my interest in the band waned.
This track, Over the Wall, is one of my favorite tracks on The Legacy. It has plenty of what I am looking for in 80s thrash, tons of palm-muted Es, power chords, gallops and some slick Alex Skolnick solo-ing (apparently a Brooklyn native these days).
I highly recommend checking out the whole album, especially the closing track, Apocalyptic City.
About Metal Monday
Luis discovered metal sometime while in Catholic middle school - born of part rebellion and some incurable urge to hear as many palm muted low e-strings as possible - metal became an obsession of his as a teenager.
Metal Monday's is our chance every week to headbang with all of you (if that's your thing).
