Testament + Megadeth + Slayer: 20 August 2010 - Chicago

The tour unites three of the biggest names from the thrash metal genre and promised to take fans back in time to 1990, when two of the bands released major hit albums, and, as part of the show, the bands would be playing each album from start to finish.

Various Artists: The Unholy Alliance [DVD]

Musically, of course, it doesn’t get much better than this – some of metal’s biggest names are on the bill, and in fine form, too, so the main fault with The Unholy Alliance is the compilation.

Slayer's best album in 16 years is also their most thought-provoking work to date.
