Legionary Unveils EP Cover Artwork

Legionary has revealed the "Once And For All" cover art, which can be seen below, and the band also comments:

"Here is the artwork for the upcoming Legionary EP 'Once And For All!' I want to first thank Mark Cooper for creating this for me. I was on a limited budget because I'm funding the entire recording, but he was still able to turn this simple concept into something sick.

"The concept behind the artwork is this... Throughout my life I've always felt like it was me against the world, whether it was because of my political beliefs, or because of my thoughts regarding the current state of heavy metal.

"I always saw myself as that lone legionary against those who thought they were bigger/better than they really were (and I've met quite a few of those along the way!). I always wanted a 'legionary' to appear on one of our artworks in some way, and I thought it would work perfectly here.

"The 'evil king' figure doesn't represent anyone in particular. Just someone who has brainwashed a bunch of people (represented by the soldiers in the back) through lies and deception. Someone who's big on words, and thinks that they're unmatched at what they do, but ultimately is weak. Again, I've met quite a few of those.

"This recording is basically going to be my way of saying 'fuck you' to all of those people who have tried to bring me down over the past 10+ years. They know who they are, and they'll all be crushed 'Once And For All' THIS SPRING!" More...

Legionary Splits With Bassist

Tri-State area metal act Legionary has checked in with the following announcement about splitting with the band's bassist:

"Due to unfortunate circumstances, Legionary and Mike Carra (bassist) have mutually agreed to part ways.

"Even though Legionary does not have any scheduled shows, I still have a few things that I want to achieve by the end of this year and next, and Mike is just not able to keep up with things at the moment. I also have been spending a lot of my time working with Strychnia, so we just have not been able to get together and work on things like I had hoped.

"On any future Legionary recordings, I may even just record the bass, or ask someone really good on bass to do it when the time comes. This doesn't change anything though, those looking for the 'new' 'Arcane Divisions' and another new Legionary recording will still get them. Also, thanks to all the new fans who have joined on Facebook, SoundCloud, and on YouTube... Your comments and support have been great!"

Legionary Gearing Up To Record Debut Album

Tri-State five piece death/thrash metal band Legionary has announced it will be entering the studio shortly to record the band's debut album "Arcane Divisions." The band has also posted the following blog post online regarding the upcoming recording sessions:

"So earlier this week, Frank and Mike visited Dave over at Little Door to set up the click tracks, tempos, and time signatures for all 10 tracks. Even with just one foot in the door, the excitement has already began to sink in for all of us...

"It seems that we all have a child like adoration for studio time. Tony and myself were recording virgins during the process of creating the demo last summer with Dave but the experience was definitely far from painful. For a group of dudes who had only met about a month earlier, it was actually an extremely satisfying and awesome time for all of us... Everyone expects a bit more stress doing 10 songs since we happen to be 5 of the most obnoxious perfectionists when it comes to this music stuff, but that's quite alright!

"Frank will be bringing his drum set by the studio some time this weekend so that everything will be ready for him to begin recording drums on the 11th... The way things are looking at the moment, we would HOPEFULLY be finishing up all recording by the first week of August before handing the tracks over to Frank's uncle 'The digital doctor' for the mixing/mastering process... Now we have the very painful task of waiting to get started on this beast! More...
