Label: Plan 9
Originally released 1985
Legacy of Brutality is a compilation album of early songs by the New Jersey punk rock band Misfits. The album contains overdubbed mixes of previously unreleased tracks, mainly from the January-February 1978 Static Age sessions. Besides the Box Set, this is the only album to contain the songs "American Nightmare" and "Who Killed Marilyn?". This compilation was one of the first (aside from bootlegs) to release many of the Static Age tracks to the common public. Glenn Danzig, having mixed and produced it, overdubbed much of the album's material without consulting any former band members.
