NEWS: Legionary escape the prison planet?

The Bronx is alive with the sound of Melodic Death Thrash as joined by Mutiny Within vocalist Chris Clancy, Legionary are set to return with their first new record in a decade. Titled “Prison Realm“, it’s set for a 14th June release as the solo project of multi instrumentalist Frank D’Erasmo with lead guitarist Tony Barhoum also returning. Mixed and mastered by Ben Karas (Thank You Scientist, Slaughter Sun) the title track is streaming now with pre-orders available over at bandcamp.

Mastermind Frank D’Erasmo comments: “For years, I’ve been wanting to have a clean singer on a Legionary record. As my melodies continued to get better, it just seemed like the next logical progression for me to take. I did everything else that I wanted to musically (write an 11-minute epic, write multiple brutal/epic EPs), so it just seemed like the right time. This new EP features Chris Clancy, vocalist of Mutiny Within, so fans of his work should love this EP. The first three tracks are brand new and mix the past brutal elements of Legionary with a new proggy feel, as well as the clean vocals. The melodies on this EP are my strongest yet, and I truly believe people will find that these tracks have a lot of replay value! The final track is a remake of an old Legionary song (the title track from our one and only album, Arcane Divisions). The original recording was less than stellar, but we always loved the track, so re-recording it felt like a great idea. This EP blends the new with the old!
