Swedish black/death metallers THE LEGION, featuring current MARDUK drummer Emil Dragutinovic, have issued the following update:
"After a long search we have finally found a new vocalist for the LEGION. He's name is Kjetil Hektoen and he’s also known for his participation in CREST OF DARKNESS and ENTHRAL. We have already started to work on material for a third album together with Kjetil and we believe that his contribution to the band will increase the quality in our music on many levels. A big thanks goes out to all the people that has auditioned for us or sent us vocal material.
"Secondly, we want to announce the departure of our bassist Lars Martinsson. Lars has decided to leave the band to continue with his studies. We wish him the best of luck and thank him for all the years of dedication to the band. Kristoffer Andersson from SARGATANAS REIGN will be filling in for Lars as a session member."
As previously reported, THE LEGION have uploaded a new song, entitled "Horror Vacui", at this location (MP3, 8.5 MB). The track comes off the group's sophomore album, tentatively due in late January via France's Listenable Records. The artwork was once again designed by Kris Verwimp (MARDUK, ABSU, IMMORTAL),who had previously worked with the group on their debut album, "Unseen to Creation".
