Technical thrash live - 69%

When Testament released it's debut album The Legacy, and the response was good, they decided to release a live-ep. The ep was decided to be recorded at the Dynamo Open Air Festival, and the date was June 8th, 1987.

What can be said about this ep? It's known that The Legacy was good album, and all the five songs are from it. Chuck Billy is a great singer and he tries to liven up the audience, but if the crowds reaction was good, it can't be heard during the songs. But between the songs audience just gets crazy. And that's no wonder.

Guitar sound is sometimes snotty, but Peterson's and Skolnick's guitars can be distinguished. It's obvious that Chuck Billy's vocals can be heard the most easily. Songs are slightly better in studio than live, but this isn't a pointless ep. Ep's biggest weakness is the general sound, but the songs are great.
