The Skinny: Progressive thrash metal band Testimony are here to kick your ass! Don’t even read this until you’ve clicked on the download button and begun listening to the song “Release From Life”. I’m serious. Do it now! Okay, now that your immersed in what is the band’s second track (first if you don’t count the intro) off their six song Debut EP, Transcending Reality, i’ll continue my rant.
Composed of four rad, young musicians, Testimony is an unsigned thrash powerhouse that resides in Northwest, Indiana. The band came together back in 2009 and consists of Adrian Harris (vocals), Michael Gawel (guitars), Derek Lambacher (bass) and Taylor Lambacher (drums). Unlike many other similar thrash acts, these guys are actually musicians of extraordinary caliber and infuse there songs with both complexity and well-organized structure. Bass trills, drum fills, guitar spills and vocals shrills aside, few at this age will rock you like Testimony do. Released on January 24, 2012, the EP is currently available for streaming and purchase on the group’s bandcamp page RIGHT HERE. Enjoy!
