I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Testament - Low [1994]

There is finally an appreciable increase in production quality. It's pretty damn heavy. Chuck has even taken to doing some growls that are more Death Metal now. Good use of 6/8 to create the feel of a heavy groove. There is also a blending of traditional Rock into the heavier sound. They're all heavy, but not all of them capture my attention. "Low", "Hail Mary", "Trail of Tears", "Dog Faced Gods", "Chasing Fear", and "Ride" stand out to me.

Rating: 7.5
