Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 103

ARTIST:  Testament
ORIGIN:  Oakland, CA (United States)
TITLE:  The Ritual
LABEL:  Atlantic Records
YEAR:  1992
GENRE:  Thrash/Heavy Metal
FAVORITE SONG:  "Return to Serenity"
NOTES:  I remember picking this one up the night before I took the ACT.  I had been studying a lot for it and I was ready for a break.  I went over to the music store and bought this as well as another album.  Testament has always been a favorite band and "Return to Serenity" was already my favorite song.  This was Testament's answer to Metallica's Black Album and the increased use of melodies was obvious.
