But perhaps even more auspicious than the whole of the instrumental arrangement is Chuck Billy’s wild vocal performance, upstaging both Hetfield and Araya in the nastiness department, and all but outright challenging Blitz Ellsworth in the higher end, gritty screamer’s club chairmanship. The Legacy fuses absolutely wicked raw power with insane riffing and ferocious vocals in a very surprisingly masterful fashion. My favorite song is definitely "Raging Waters" which has the most epic riffing and Chuck spits out the lyrics with such speed and aggression it's awesome. The rest of the gang helps out with classic thrash gang vocals.Speaking of whom, how 'bout that Alex Skolnick, huh? If not for the great lyrics, the classic riffs, or the vocal performance of Chuck Billy, at least check it out for the killer soloing. There's, of course, great aggressive numbers like the ferocious "Raging Waters" or "COTLOD" with Billy's mean vocals, fast drumming and memorable riffage, particularly on "Raging". To us die hard thrashers, it's THE BIG 500! The solo to "First Strike Is Deadly" is one of my favorites of all time, it has this awesome classical scaling to it that is extremely clever and works very well. Hell these just might be the high water marks of Testament's entire career. Burn! There's also an epic, dramatic structure to this early Testament songwriting which recalls Puppets' high ideals and ambition. They have a well-honed and enjoyable style, but they don't deviate. Both my cassette and CD versions have both suffered from the punchy, semi-muffled tone of the rhythm guitar, and in my own ignorance I've never looked up or tracked down a worthy remaster. But for whatever reason, Testament has been seen as more loyal to their sound and more consistent than any other thrash band, therefore they've had more hype than most. Otherwise, just download the highlight songs and be done with it. I wouldn't place this on quite the same pedestal of quality as its forebear (after all, that album is about the tops for me and this genre), and the mix of the guitars in particular can get a little muddy, but it certainly does daddy proud.

On their 1987 debut "The Legacy," they begin their career on a high note, creating quality, anthemic thrash, which may not be wholly original, but is jam-packed with masterful riffs and strong songwriting, and over 30 years later, it is this timeless songwriting and riff-work that causes the album to remain a high point of thrash metal. Don't get me wrong, it is not at all great production, but in my opinion it is not a problem here. This is a Testament album that is defined not by its lead guitarist, though Skolnick makes just as tantalizing a racket on here as he’s done since, but by an all out, collective mastery of the craft. I can remember the very first time I listened to The Legacy. 2. Did you install a browser extension (such as Realplayer/Realdownloader) that helps you download YouTube videos or other content?
