Testament to Perform 'The Legacy' in Full on Upcoming American Carnage Tour

Testament to Perform 'The Legacy' In Full on Upcoming American Carnage TourEarlier this week, Chuck Billy announced on KNAC that Testament will be playing the entirety of their 1987 debut LP The Legacy on the upcoming American Carnage Tour.

"We decided last night that instead of putting — because we only have a 40-minute set to pick — instead of playing a medley of songs, we decided we're going to do the entire "The Legacy" record, start to finish, in its entirety for the show. We did it last year, over in Holland, and then we did a show in London. And that show we did "The Legacy" and "The New Order" back to back, just like on the records, song after song." - Chuck Billy

For anyone who wants an early listen as to how Testament's set will sound, Testament's latest disc, Live at Eindhoven '87 (Prosthetic Records), is a great place to start. This is a live set from the band's European debut at the Dynamo Open Air Festival where the band tears through the majority of The Legacy LP.

Testament released 5 tracks from this show on a European EP (which was later issued in the US) in 1987 but this is the first time that the band's full 10-song set has been released. In addition to the longer set, the sound has been remastered and sounds significantly better than the original EP.

Here is the complete track list for the disc:

1. Disciples of the Watch
2. The Haunting
3. Apocalyptic City
4. First Strike Is Deadly
5. Burnt Offerings
6. Alex Skolnick guitar solo
7. Over The Wall
8. Do Or Die
9. Curse of the Legion of Death (C.O.T.L.O.D.)
10. Reign of Terror
