El Legado (en: "The Legacy") is the debut album by power metal band DarkSun, released in 2004. In the middle of 2003, DarkSun went to Germany to record what would become their debut album. It was recorded in the VPS Studios, produced by Ingo Cjavkoski (better known as Rage's producer), and mixed at House of Music Studios by Achim Köhler (mixer who had worked for bands like Primal Fear and Sinner). El Legado was released in July 2004, receiving very good reviews, and stating that El Legado, was "one of the best Spanish metal albums of the year [...] from an excellent band". DarkSun toured Spain for a whole year to support the album, and had "tickets-sold-out" posters in most the venues. The critics and live-reviews about this new band were incredibly good. In the middle of the tour, drummer Daniel Cabal left the band. The rest of the members had to cancel some concerts before introducing Cabal's replacement, drummer Rafael Yugueros who was at that time known for his work on power metal band Darna, on their first and second album and left after the band's breakup on 2004. When the tour ended DarkSun entered the studios once again to record their new album.
