By Inheritance - the album that shook the Metal Storm world when it penetrated the top of the best albums list. Luckily, the Rust In Peace fanboi battalion was there to protect their prized jewel from the... well, pardon the pun, the heavy Artillery. With that scare in the past, this album has taken a stable place in the top 200 albums of all time (#154 at the time of this review).

One of the best Metal Records of all time, such an underrated Thrash Classic

It may just be because the hype gave me some unreasonably high expectations, but I just don't "get" the supposed greatness of this album. Aprart from the opening riffs on "Khomaniac", there isn't really anything on it that justifies its comparison to "Rust in Peace" - at least in my highly subjective opinion.

You are totally spot on about everything you said.

This album isn't allowed to tie R.I.P.'s, RtL's, Hell Awaits', Doomsday For The Deceiver's and so many another thrash classic's shoelaces.

yeah man
I used to regard this as one of my favorite thrash albums of all time, but I just kind of realized that whenever I go to listen to it, I play the first five tracks and then turn it off. A good album, but only half of it is really enjoyable to me, the rest is pretty average thrash.

Totally agreed. The second half is bad, even first half is not that excellent, just considered good. Now I start believing Marcel and Joe meant good for keep calling people trolls...those who rated this album a 10 are surely trolls

Probably the good production effort made it sounds high quality...it's definitely a false impression.

I bought the reissue at a very low price (like 3 euros) at some mainstream music store in Ukraine.

Then I'm quite sure your copy is a pirated from Ayam in Ukraine.

Wow, this is as perfect as thrash metal goes. Technical memorable riffs, well written lyrics, great rhythm section and Flemmings voice which can tear down walls! The only weak point is the Nazareth cover and Don't Believe isn't maybe on par with the rest but other than that it's a great feast of riffs!
