            To start, I want to preface this by saying I have only got to watch half of the DVD ‘Dark Roots of Thrash’ as I have been a bit busy and attending to other things but I have listened fully to the Live CD of the same concert so from a listening viewpoint I’m fully ready to go from a viewing standpoint I’m at 50%.  Also, I decided to review both DVD and CD together as the live CD is also the same concert from the Live DVD recorded at the Paramount in Huntington, New York.

Taking on the live CD on its own ‘Dark Roots of Thrash’ is a true beast of thrash showcasing Testament at their very best.  With today’s technology bands really have no excuse to sound bad live unless they are just shitty bands to begin with but Testament are veterans in the metal world and even without the technology they sound great live.  If you don’t believe me you can go back and watch their older live shows and it’s evident that if a band is talented and know what they are doing they don’t need fancy tech to ‘help’ them out.  So just how good is ‘Dark Roots of Thrash’?  Damn fucking good.
