THE LEGION Parts Ways With Singer

March 20, 2008

Swedish black/death metallers THE LEGION, who feature in their ranks former MARDUK drummer Emil Dragutinovic, have issued the following update:

"As you might know, we've had our share of difficulties managing the vocal position. And once again we're without a permanent singer. A while ago we and Kjetil [Hektoen] decided to go separate ways. He's been busy with his other bands/projects and simply didn't find the time and devotion required to rehearse with us as much as we wanted. We think it's really sad since we like him both as a person, as well as for his amazing skills vocally. We really whish him all the best for the future and thank him for his time with us and his support in our live performances.

"Regarding the ongoing recording, everything's developing the way we intended. The work pace hasn't been optimal because of the inability to record everything at one occasion (as you normally do). Since none of us are full-time musicians, we've only been able to record a little bit now and then in our spare time. Nevertheless, we have never put this many hours into recording an album before, so it'll sure surpass any of our previous work. As of now, there's only the vocal part left, which we'll handle ourselves this time. And then we're headed for mixing and mastering of course

"The new material a bit more epic and 'majestic,' but at the same time very sick and twisted. The intensity is still there for sure but, we've focused more on getting the right feel, instead of getting entangled in technical twists. Prepare yourself for a subversive and sinister attack!"

THE LEGION released its sophomore album, "Revocation", in February 2006 via Listenable Records.
