The second release Ballroom Killer was mixed by famed Ministry crew Keith "Fluffy" Auerbach and Howie Beno. The third record Mmmyaoooo record was produced by Metal Blade artist Skrew and with it the status of being a sideproject was blown away. TESTIFY has developed into a real band thing - a unit of sincerity. While the debut was animated by a spirit of roughness and quick work, Mmmyaoooo is the product of one year's work.The result is a list of eleven tracks which are filled with power, speed, brutality, insane humor and... atmosphere.
The fourth album Crack the Mind features mixes by Die Krupps, Die Warzau and Plastic Noise Experience. Crack the Mind incorporates five brand new titles and four remix war titles from Mmmyaoooo. TESTIFY continues to blow away its peers with razor sharp treated vocals, powerful lyrics, well placed samples and chunky guitars.
