Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 103
ORIGIN: Oakland, CA (United States)
TITLE: The Ritual
LABEL: Atlantic Records
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.
