METAL | Testament

comment

 

Testament's debut album, "The Legacy," released in 1987, played fast and heavy, drawing a comparison to Metallica. The band followed it up with "Practice What You Preach" in 1989, and other critically acclaimed records soon followed. While Testament has not reached the dizzy heights of mainstream music, the band remains a backbone of underground metal. The lineup includes frontman Chuck Billy and ace-in-the-hole guitarist Alex Skolnick, who are both members of the supergroup Metal Allegiance, which comes to town for an April concert.

Testament performs Monday, March 7, at Anthology, 336 East Avenue. 6 p.m. $25-$29. anthologylive.com; testamentlegions.com.
