BASS INSIDE CD REVIEW

Legacy - Legacy

Bassist: Marten Andersson

First off, there is good-hearted humor ahead, so if you are too brittle to 'get it', that's your problem, not mine. This kind of guy I hate! Killer bassist, he's played in a great band like Lizzie Borden, opened for or headlined with the likes of Deep Purple, Dio, Motorhead, Wasp, King's X, Alice Cooper, Yngwie Malmsteen & Firehouse and sounds like he could or has played in any and all of them. A model and an actor and the author of a music directory. The list of acheivements just goes on, until all I can do is cry or just laugh at the absurity of how ordinary your own life is. The rest of the band are a bunch of over-achievers, too. The album is just what you would expect from a group of heavy metal monsters. Hot songs, great solos, a lot of strutting, the usual stuff, well played. For the genre they dance in, they are as good as it can get. Grrrr.

Well executed, carefully crafted , this album combines a good blend of melody and go for the throat attitude. Songs like “Tool” and Autumn Rising” stand tall in the mix. Add to that, “Thank You”, the Jason Becker/Marty Friedman inspired ballad, will make Legacy one of the most talked about bands of the Millennium.

I'm familiar with Marten Andersson playing bass for Lizzy Borden and this was my first taste of him outside of Lizzy Borden. He has a band called Legacy and they are definitely a talented bunch. Marten seems to be the main lyricist in the band and the songs are well written. I love the guitar riffs and there's definitely some top notch technical playing. The vocalist has a nice range. "Mission Of Mercy" and "My Last Sunrise" are my favorite tracks on this CD. The album overall is very heavy and very melodic with a couple of really nice ballads on it. There are some very cool instrumentals on the album with "2.4.1" being my favorite out of that bunch. Definitely a very cool album.

Legacy CD review by maelstrom.nu

LEGACY - Legacy - CD - www.legacylive.com
Review by: Laurent Martini

Many bands continue to make a certain genre of music well after that genre is dead, gone and most likely hated. Most of those bands suck anyways, but then there are those that just shine. And thus we have Legacy.

You've got to feel sorry for Legacy because 16 years ago they would have been huge: ruling the airwaves and MTV and snorting so much coke in the hot tub attached to the back of their limo that they would have felt as if nothing could take them down. But times change, hair is less teased and Britney Fox is no more. Legacy's self titled album is filled with guitarist's Hansson heavy lead guitar and cool riffs, especially on the outro to "Leave it Alone." Roseberry's deep voice is a perfect contrast to the soaring solos. Think Skid Row at around the time of Slave to the Grind and that's where Legacy lies. If you liked that sound then you'll love this band.

LEGACY/Legacy. 11 kick ass straight ahead metal tunes sort of like Dio in vein. The band write solid tunes with plenty of hooks and melodic vocals. The music is not wimpy at all and if your the vocals totally rule as does this band

LEGACY/Legacy
Review by: Sweden Rock

Melodic rock with a touch of metal thrown in. There aren't many new bands playing this style and I grew up a fan of rock n roll as well as underground metal so I am totally into what these guys are all about. 11 bone crunching rock tunes. Think bands like Coney Hatch, Night Ranger, etc. Great vocals are just plain kick ass tunes make this a rock lovers delight. Tracks list: Troubleshooter, Underdog, Tool, Autumn Rising, Mission Of Mercy, Leave It Alone, 2.4.1, Can't Remember Love, My Last Sunrise, Astral Sundown, Thank You.
