MISFITS are an American band often recognized as the progenitors of the "horror punk" subgenre, blending punk and classic rock´n´roll with retro-science fiction, b-movies and horror film themes and imagery basically from the 50s and 40s decades. MISFITS was founded in 1977 in Lodi, New Jersey by singer and songwriter Glenn Danzig, the group had a fluctuating lineup during its first six years with Danzig and bassist Jerry Only as the only consistent members. During this time they released several EPs and singles, and with Only's brother Doyle as guitarist, the albums "Walk Among Us" (1982) and "Earth A.D." (1983), both considered touchstones of the early 80s hardcore punk movement. MISFITS disbanded in 1984 and Danzig went on to form SAMHAIN and then the eponymous DANZIG. Several albums of reissued and previously unreleased material were issued after the group's dissolution, and their music became totally to mainstream industry of the late 90s and early 2000s. This album entitled "Legacy of brutality" was in fact officially released in 1985 with MISFITS post-mortem, and this is not an official full lengh album but a simple collection of seventeen songs recorded from 1977 to 1981. Also to add it exist another collections with these exact songs but in different order and also different cover, back and general artwork like: "Static ages" or "Beware". Everybody can to choose in these three identical compilations...

"Earth A.D." is the last album released by American horror punk band MISFITS to feature founding member and lead vocalist, Glenn Danzig. Danzig released it on his Plan 9 label in December 1983, two months after he played his last concert with the band. It was noticeably harder and faster than their previous releases. Since its release it has often been referred to as "Earth A.D." amongst fans. Originally released as a 9 song LP, it was later issued with the three tracks of the Die, Die My Darling EP incorporated into the track listing: "Die, Die My Darling", "Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?" and "We Bite". Glenn Danzig has said that the tracks "Bloodfeast" and "Death Comes Ripping" were originally intended for Samhain's first release, but were added to what would be the Misfits' final record in a last-ditch effort to save the band.

"American psycho" is an album by the MISFITS. Released May 13, 1997, it was the first to be recorded and released without the band's founder and former leader Glenn Danzig. Bassist Jerry Only, after years of litigation, reached a settlement with Danzig and was granted the rights to use the band's name and image to record and perform. The album additionally marked the addition of musician Michale Graves. Originally, the album was going to be titled Dead Kings Rise, a play on the band's resurrection, but was changed when the title track didn't make the album. The album was produced by Daniel Rey, who has produced for artists such as the Ramones and White Zombie. "Entertainment Weekly" said: "...Their goofy formula of lyrics inspired by bad horror movies, poppy vocals, and blasting hardcore is still excellent mosh-pit fodder, and new frontman Michale Graves is a dead ringer for Glenn Danzig before he found his fortune as a heavy metal crooner".
