thrash metal band
Testament was one of the first thrash metal bands to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1980s. Originally formed as 'Legacy' in 1983 by founding members Eric Peterson (rhythm guitar), Derrick Ramirez (guitar) and Louie Clemente (drums), the line-up included vocalist Steve Souza and Greg Christian (bass). Ramirez was later replaced by wunderkind Alex Skolnick (lead guitar). Souza soon departed to join Exodus and suggested that the towering Chuck Billy take over as frontman(and was later run over by a bus). The band became known as 'Testament' 3 years later, while recording their debut album in Ithaca, New York.

It's most likely like similar to many great songs. As in the artists actual meaning behind the lyrics artists actual meaning behind the lyrics could be somithing quite specific, and personal to them that we could never know. What's important is how their interpretated by the listsner. As long as they take something away from it that's positive and not completely misunderstood, a good example of missinterpitation is Ozzy Osbournes suicide solution. Let it mean whatever your your impressions of it are.
