6. Exodus

Although to be fair, I had to watch Exodus from outside. And all these bands got 8/10 or higher!
The best thrash show I've experienced is between Exodus the first time I saw them, Kreator the second time I saw them, and Overkill. I would say Kreator is probably closest to number one. Their set was amazingly brutaltastic (fuck you, English language).

Fair enough. For one, Chuck Billy's voice has held up the best by far.

If you want the core Testament sound, definately check out their first three (The Legacy, The New Order, and Practice What You Preach). The New Order is my personal favorite, so I would start with that. Souls of Black is still along the same lines as their last three, but not as thrash. It also (along with the other first few) suffers from pretty bad production. Their next album, The Ritual, is more of a traditional heavy metal/hard rock album, but is a really underrated and overlooked record. Then their next three (Low, Demonic, the Gathering) starts to branch out into death metal a little bit, which is most evident on Demonic. And then of course their last album, The Formation of Damnation, is kind of a return to thrash in a way, but with a lot of elements of the last three.

tl;dr; Start with The New Order, then I would say to check out The Formation of Damnation, and then eventually everything else

I think that of all the 80's American Thrash bands, Testament has held up the best over the years as far as the quality of their releases compared to the other bands, and I gotta respect that. I love The Formation of Damnation.

Don't pretend like Zetro didn't rock it at DDP. Although not an original Exodus member, he certainly warrants mention when it comes to long term vocal ability. I loved watching him perform Toxic Waltz with the rest of the band earlier this year.
