Biography of Band

The LEGION saw the darkness of night in late 1999, when several line-up changes in the black metal band Tyrant craved for a new name. Back then the band consisted of Svartz(guitar/vocals), Tiwaz(guitar), Ahrijan(bass) and Emil Dragutinovic(drums).

Early 2000, quartet recorded their debut demo “Bloodaeons”. This four track blasterpiece of cold and grim black metal gained very good response when it was released later the same year. Neodawn Productions(GER) helped the band out, printing and distributing the tape, which by now has sold over 1500 copies.

In 2001 the band went through some major reformations. Early this year, Hammarstr?m joined the band on vocals, since Svartz wanted to fully concentrate on his guitar playing. Some months later, Ahrijan was replaced by Lazr on bass guitar.

In April 2002 The LEGION entered Los Angered Recording together with legendary Andy LaRocque engineering. Four new furious songs were recorded and three of them ended up on the 7" red vinyl "Awakened Fury" released onNeodawn Productions / Ketzer Records in 666 hand-numbered copies.

In early January 2003 Hammarstr?m parted with the band due to personal reasons. Several auditions were arranged and executed until The LEGION finally decided to recruit formerly unknown Anders F?ldt on vocals.

In June 2003, a CD version of “Awakened Fury” was unleashed by Deepsend Records.(US),containing all four songs from the Los Angered- session plus“On Swift Wings” from the “Bloodaeons” demo.

Having barely received the “Awakened Fury” CD:s from the printing plant, The LEGION went off to famous Abyss Studios in late June 2003 to record the debut album “Unseen To Creation”, set for release this autumn by Listenable Records (FR).
