Legion signs with eOne/Good Fight

Friday, December 07, 2012 7:07 AM PT


Official press release:

Columbus metalers Legion has signed a worldwide deal with eOne Music/Good Fight Music and will release a brand new record in the spring of 2013. The band is currently gearing up for the End of the World Tour supporting Job For A Cowboy this winter. Guitarist Alex Heiberger comments on the news:

"Over the last year and a half or so, we have been hard at work writing and looking for the perfect label to help us release our new material. When we were told that eOne / Good Fight was interested in us we could not have been more stoked. There are so many bands on the label that have influenced us since the beginning and it is an honor to now be a part of a great label."

Gaining exposure through their own DIY touring and performances at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, the band has come a long way in a short amount of time. The video for "Perverse Icon" (below) has offered YouTube users a glimpse at just what Legion is capable of achieving on stage. Tracks like "Disclosure of Sin" and "Righteous Dictation" are emblematic of Legion's skillful precision when it comes to balancing aggressive metallic destruction with trippy groove.

at first I was gonna right them completely off then..
(1) That one dood needs to keep his tongue in his mouth
(2) there was nothing grovey about that vid
(3) It sounded like the new to heavy to hard crap ( anything like new Acacia Strain.. TRASH what happened to 3750)
(4) none of you will care about this heart felt message.
(5) if you are happy w/ your music an dyou get a label good for you. rock on in your own damn way BRO

Band is incredibly bad. Even worse than most of their deathcore peers. How much longer are there going to be bands playing this horrible genre of music?

All of you haters listen to Slipknot and pleasure to it. None of you have given any of their material enough of a chance to make any judgements on it. fck OFF.
