THE LEGION: Another New Song Posted Online

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

"As of April 27, [the third THE LEGION album] 'A Bliss to Suffer' is finally out on Listenable Records! We have decided to celebrate this event by uploading yet another song for streaming listening. 'The Inimical' contains the very first material written for the album. However, the song, as it stands today, was the last to be finished. The lyrics were put down during one of those pitch-black August nights of 2008 as the album was approaching its very fulfillment.

"We hope you will enjoy this piece of work as much as we do, reckoning it is one of those songs you never really anticipate the potential of until it is set and recorded and proves itself to shred completely. Next time you enjoy our blackened tunes, reeking of death, we hope it happens on a heavy rack of equipment, at maximum volume, in absolute darkness, along with those eight other songs that constitute our most accomplished work to date. In hoc signo vinces!"

Check out the song on THE LEGION MySpace page.

"A Bliss to Suffer" was entirely produced by the bandmembers themselves at Art Decay Studio during a series of sessions in 2007 and 2008 and "displays the relentless speed and severe brutality of previous efforts blended together with strangely atmospheric and epic elements, taking the lethal concoctions to new heights," according to a press release. The band says, "Vocalist [Lars] Martinsson is back as a permanent member after commitments elsewhere, and celebrates the return with a never-ending row of ghastly shrieks all through the album."

01. Shining Redemption
02. Call Of The Nameless Black
