Nearly all, if not all, of the songs are classics, and members of the relevant generation(s) can still pull off their riffs and lyrics by heart upon the mere mention of their names.

Or rather, it is half of it. Coming about as the result of a contest win, "Epitaph 2008" features re-recordings of arguably the group's two best songs (although one does miss "Oblivion") and cleverly strays from material from the uninspired "Last of Kin". The benefit of a better production really helps "Epitaph For The Proud"'s qualities shine through, bringing out the song's rock'n'roll attitude in full. Conversely, however, "Garden of Stone" loses a little of its original personality with the re-recording, sounding a tad more generic than the original take., However, and despite the lack of any original material, this is still a recommended download for fans of the group and of melodeath in general. The fact that it's free only makes it that much better.

The four famously classic tracks are undoubtedly very good, but there isn't much to listen to beyond them. The remaining tracks veer between passable and uninspired, and may not pass muster with a more demanding rock'n'roll fan. If you're looking to get into AC/DC, forget this one and get "Highway To Hell" instead; THAT'S the real classic.AC/DC Let There Be RockAC/DC Fly on the WallAC/DC PowerageAce Frehley AnomalyAce Frehley Trouble Walkin'Ace Frehley 12 PicksAirbourne Ready To RockAirbourne No Guts.

They weren't even third tier, and that shows on this album. What we have here is basically the work of a (competent) fourth-tier nu-metal band. The sound is derivative, albeit at times engaging, the anger is processed, and even the titles are fairly typical.
To do this band justice, their album starts off pretty strong. Down on Me, Chemical and It's Real are all strong nu-metal tracks, and I actually get a kick out of listening to them. But the problem here is the same that affects most hip-hop albums - there are just too many tracks, which contributes greatly to a reduction of the listener's interest. Plus, the closer we get to the end, the less interesting the tracks become, and none of them are ever a patch on the first five.
Another interesting factor in the band's sound is that every other song sounds the same. All the odd-number songs sound like Slipknot/Downthesun and all the even-numbered ones sound like System of A Down/Korn/Dope.
All in all, then, this is the definition of an average album. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, just derivative and a tad boring. If you're curious, try downloading Down on Me, Chemical and My Release, and just consign the rest of the album to eternal oblivion.Pantera Far Beyond DrivenPapa Roach InfestPaul Stanley Live to WinPoison Crack A Smile...And More!Poison Best of Ballads & BluesPoison Poison'd!Ramones Road to RuinRust Shoot Them HigherScandal The WarriorSleep Parade Mr. IdentifySlipknot Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)Three Days Grace Transit of VenusToxic Taste ToxificationVarious Artists Dracula 2000 OST2.0 poorAccept AcceptAlerion FledglingBlack Sheep (80s) Trouble In The StreetsBret Michaels Songs Of LifeBullfrog Bheer Bullfrog BheerDonots Better days not includedFull Devil Jacket Full Devil JacketJudas Priest TurboKISS DynastyKISS KillersKISS The Box SetKISS Jigoku-RetsudenLillian García Quiero VivirMC5 High TimeParis Hilton ParisPoison Native TongueRamones Subterranean JungleSound City Players Sound City: Real To ReelSoundtrack (Film) Alvin and The ChipmunksThe Darkness One Way Ticket To Hell And BackThree Days Grace Life Starts NowTinariwen Aman Iman: The Water Of LifeWicked Lester The Complete Wicked Lester Sessions1.5 very poorBig Ball Hotter than HellBret Michaels A Letter From Death RowBret Michaels Rock My WorldFM Static Critically AshamedGene Simmons Gene SimmonsGreen Day NimrodGreen Day iDOS!LOL @ how many 1 ratings this already has.

"Metal Magic" sees the Texas quartet, then led by terrible singer Terry Glaze, embark in a piss-poor brand of hard'n'heavy with shameless glam overtones. There's even an attemptive ballad with keyboards! The songs veer between the unremarkable and the god-awful, often directly ripping off KISS, an admitted influence for the Darrell brothers. Heck, "Ride My Rocket" itself rips its title off an Ace Frehley song and its music off "Detroit Rock City"! The sad part is, it doesn't get much better from there, causing this album to be almost completely worthless. The only nearly acceptable song is the title track, whose riff hints at what would come years later.
Unfortunately, there would still be two more albums of this tripe before Pantera came to their senses, switched Glaze for Phil Anselmo, and set about redefining thrash metal.
