Dimmu.

That Testament didn't click for me.

EDP is an all-time classic, 10/10. Love the Abyss production too.

I like the Testament album a lot. There are two songs on the album I don't care for but the rest is very good IMO.

I do not care for DB.

Love that dimmu. Milestone for symphonic black metal.

The Dimmu is a landmark release, the Testament is not.

I'm a biased thrash fan. I never understood Dimmu.

Took Testament as I don't really care for Dimmu....they are certainly one of the better bands from that sub-genre that I have heard, but still far behind Testament for my tastes.

:cheers:

There are about three, MAYBE four songs on that Testament album that stand out to me. The rest all just sounds like filler to my ears. I don't get the love for it. All I hear when I listen to it is a band who completely phoned it in on the song writing. Dimmu Borgir takes it for me.

You're not alone - I like every single Testament release ever.
People used to shit all over "Souls of Black" and "Demonic" too, but they were wrong.

I do think "Formation" & "Dark Roots" are slightly better, but it's still Testament, which means it's good.
