Coming at you from a diverse background of punk, metal, rock and hardcore, and gathering influences from everyone from Black Flag, Slipknot and Parkway Drive, Brit hardcorers, OF LEGIONS, are a towering, raw, and formidable group. Born in 2015 in Stoke, the birthplace of Lemmy and childhood home of Slash, OF LEGIONS’ music can be described as loud, raucous and chaotic. The band release their enthralling new single, Vision Of Misery, featuring Loathe’s Kadeem France, on Friday 9th November.
OF LEGIONS have been busy since their inception and, to date, have crafted two EPs and a debut album, Face Value, which garnered strong support from Moshville, New Noise Magazine, Maximum Volume Music, and Pure Grain Audio. The foursome have also amassed quite a following and have now shared stages with the likes of Silent Screams, Liferuiner, Martyr Defiled, Continents, Brokencyde, and more recently with Sikth and Loathe. 2018 has been their busiest year yet with the release of their debut album.
Playing show after show, up and down the country, the energetic quartet have certainly honed their craft and gathered momentum for their new single, Vision of Misery. The new track is fast-paced, hard hitting, and aggressive, and lyrically reflects rather heavily on relatable modern social aspects. Influenced more specifically by While She Sleeps, Slipknot, Malevolence, and The Fever 333, the single highlights the crew’s knack for delivering catchy guitar driven riffs, technical drum fills and heavy bass lines which, as Guitarist Sam relays: ‘combine to make an intense bombardment to the senses’. These hardcorers aren’t taking a break either. The Midlanders won’t stop writing and are aiming for more releases around the corner in 2019. Stay tuned and watch them rise above the rest.
