5.0 out of 5 stars METALLICA, EAT YOUR HEART OUT!!!, September 29, 2004
This review is from: By Inheritance (Audio CD)
Artillery. One of those bands you never heard of. The type of band that got totally ignored by the Thrashmetal scene back in the old days. but there are some of us out there who did not ignore this superior awesome band. Artillery sound very similar to Master of Puppets, but with Udo from Accept doing vocals. However, they are just as talented if not more than old Metallica. The first track Komaniac is one of the most badass Speedthrash songs ever written and the riffs remind me very much of the ones in "Dyer's Eve" from Justice. Plus Flemming Rasmussen produced By Inheritence which gives the guitar sound that extra thick crushing sound. The songwriting on this album is so awesome it really is a shame that Artillery have been ignored so much. All ten songs totally kick ass full with skull smashing riffs, blazing solos and also a few clean arppegiated passages which would appeal to fans of the debut Metal Church album. All in all this album is in my opinion a true Thrash classic and it needs to get reissued!! Buy it now you will not be disappointed

5.0 out of 5 stars Was just listening to this the other day., March 27, 2009
This review is from: BY INHERITANCE (Audio CD)
I used to frequent a local record shop back in the day and their "cut-outs" (bargain bin) of cassette tapes. It was a veritable gold mine of unheard of yet (sometimes) talented metal bands and I had the good fortune of picking this one up.

I'm still transferring my old cassettes to CD and this was the latest one. These guys are incredibly talented and are quite reminiscent of Ride the Lightning/Master of Puppets era Metallica, which comes as little surprise since this album was produced by Fleming Rasmussen who also produced those albums for Metallica.

Actually I think Artillery is more riff-heavy than Metallica, but that's just an opinion, but you can definitely hear Rasmussen's influence in the sound.

Any old school metal fan should pick this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artillery @ there peak/THRASHIN CRAZY!!!, December 30, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: BY INHERITANCE (Audio CD)
Atillery's "By Inheritence" is the best Album they got in my opinion. I myself compare these guys to Overkill, The Album kicks off with a crazy wicked egyption sound and is f##kn killer, then Khomaniac is just the song to kick off the album with nice drum beats and catchy riffs, with clean almost high pitched vocals like really no one i,ve really heard. Then theres the title track "By Inheritance" which so bad a$$ i compare it to Overkills"Elimination",everything about that song is worth getttn.
The faster songs on this album like "Life in Bondage" is one of those riffing like Megadeths-"Rattlehead" "Lucrica".then theres "Back in the Trash" that is really good not tooo fast or to slow talk about catchy riffage, i compare it to again Megadeths "tornado of Souls"
U should give this album a try if u are not familiar with Artillery, Terror Squad is a Artillery'/Thrash classic also

In my search for discovering underrated thrash metal masterpieces, By Inheritance automatically stands out among the rest. In my opinion, it is one of the few albums that can go toe to toe with anything the Big 4 released, and beat them. The riffs can compete with anything from Rust In Peace, the production is crisp and clean and rivals Master Of Puppets. If there was ever a competition over the best least known metal band, Artillery would easily win.

By Inheritance is a masterpiece in the world of thrash, and metal in general. The younger brother to the awesome riff fest that was Terror Squad, By Inheritence still retains that cathcy vibe as well as adding different riffs, and a much more complex style of solos. "7:00 From Tashkent" is our intro to this beast. A decent intro that will have you hooked with the arabian style opening riff. Sets up "Khomaniac" starts with a catchy riff that could fit on Terror Squad. We notice Flemming's voice has been dialed down a bit, but in a good way. He is much more melodic and shows why he is one of my favorite vocalists. The drumming is incredible, and not to mention the Stutzer brothers' performace on the guitars. "Beneath The Clay (RIP)" a great track to follow the energy from the first real song. This is totally a guitar driven track. The riffs and tempo changes rival anything the "bigger" bands have done. You will be singing along to the chorus. "By Inheritence" the title track, and another jewel off this masterpiece, blasts off right from the beginning. This is hands down on of the best performances from Flemming I have ever heard. His unique vocals compliment the Stutzers on guitars and the drums. "Bombfood" is lyrically, the most compelling song from the album. The transition from peacful melody to insane chaos riffage will have you wanting more and more. When Flemming wails "SOLDIER!" you know you are in for one killer track. This song also features one of the best solos on the album. "Don't Believe" has another incredibly melodic intro. Flemming also has a memorable performance here as well. Incredibly entertaining. "Life In Bondage" Insane riffing, great drumming, and killer vocals propel this track from beginning to end. Oh by the way, the solos will melt your face off. "Equal At First" the opening riff has a major Iron Maiden influence *The Trooper* "Razamanaz" a decent cover, but musically, it does not fit on here with the likes of the previous tracks. Its a good cover, it just sticks out like a sore thumb. "Back In The Trash" one of the top three songs to end an album. 1, My Last Words-Megadeth. 2.Raining Blood-Slayer. 3,Back In The Trash. This track is an amazing way to end this masterpiece. The vocal performance is darker than the rest of the album and the riffs are menacing.

Overall, you like music? Yeah? Well you should get this then. With insane riffs, incredible solos, a great frontman, and some very nice drumming, this album will make you wonder why these guys never hit it big.
