U.S act Testing Tomorrow won?t write history with their debut album "One", they probably won?t sell millions of copies either or win any prizes at music awards but I fancy their traditional numetal quite a lot. Sometimes, simple and classic metal can be the right medicine to get through the daily routines. This band has taken influences from both Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains and Metallica which you can hear on songs like "Rabbit", "Denied" and "Water". The singer?s strength lies in his power but when he calms down on the slow parts, his voice tend to get a bit monotone. However, this album will do just fine as a morning starter - rock it up folks!
James Hetfield got the idea for "Nothing Else Matters" one day he was talking on the phone and with his free hand strummed the strings in a particular order. He hung up and inmediately started working on the song.
