"To make a song talking about going to a concert it may sound a little weird today's day after youtube's way of showing everything day after day, but... back then it was a whole new experience, just remember yourself getting ready to go see to our favorite artists and such waiting for a friend or picking up to a friend before going out… Today we have lost the excitement and expectations about it, so we wanted to pay tribute to that with this song."

We have been working on the new songs for some time now… so our EP project has become our debut album… yeah! 20 years after but what the hell we have at least two original members that were on those old recordings… so that's all, we just keep working hard at it… we love what we do..."

The track features the guest vocals of Vastator's Rob Diaz and an appearance by Raining's Sebastian Osorio. "Somos Legion" was recorded at Oily Sound Studios in New Windsor, New York by Pirosaint drummer Ignacio Orellana and mastered by Cristian Olivares of AudioCustom Studios. Stream "Somos Legion" below.
Digmetalworld, in conjunction with Portaldisc/KulMusic, has announced that a preliminary line-up of bands has been confirmed for the compilation "La Educacion, Nuestra Razon." The anthology will feature ten Chilean metal bands and veterans of the scene, each contributing a song to bring heightened awareness the the cause of nationwide free education in Chile. The concept that "La Educacion, Nuestra Razon" emphasizes is that education should be the right of the masses and not a privilege of the wealthy or private sector.
With a tentative release date in early 2013, Digmetalworld has established November 2nd as the cut off date for artists wishing to submit a song. Currently, the bands Rex, Sinsilencio, Ultra Mortal, Rajavana, Krudo, Pirosaint and Ratzinger have confirmed their presence on the compilation. Ivan Vega of Ratzinger wrote the track "R3volucion" especially for the album, and even Sr. Diaz of veteran old schoolers Vastator will be backing up Pirosaint on vocals.
This will be one of the first musical offerings from Pirosaint since 1997, and Sr. Diaz backing them up was opportune considering the band currently has no vocalist while they audition for the spot. Sebastian Osorio from the band Raining will even contribute guitar solos to Pirosaint's selection for the album, which will be the second time they collaborate after working together on 2010's track for the Chilean earthquake relief. Pirosaint will take a brief detour from it's thrash origins into more power, melodic turf for their track.
The ten songs on the outing will be all distinct styles across the spectrum of metal, all coming together to highlight a cause that is important to them and their countrymen. Bands wanting to submit their music for consideration on the digital release "La Educacion, Nuestra Razon" can get information on submitting their music here. More information will be given as more bands confirm for the release. More...
Thrash metal band Pirosaint has announced the addition of Billy Cunningham (formerly of NJ's Warhorse) as the group's new vocalist. Currently Pirosaint is recording 5 tracks for an upcoming self-titled EP, with a new promo track to be released in the coming weeks.
Drummer Ignacio Orellana has commented on the vocalist's addition:
"Now that we have found Billy C., everything is going to be easier, we already had some tracks ready to be worked on, we supposed to have guest musicians on those tracks but now is a whole new story. Billy C. has been great and he is a great fit for our music. The people will get to hear Pirosaint's live shows, exactly the way that we do on the records."
Pirosaint has been confirmed as a supporting act for Static-X on August 19th at The Chance Theater, and this event marks the return of the band to the live shows. Pirosaint is:
Bill Smith - guitars

Pirosaint has announced that it will begin the recording a brand new album after almost 15 years of silence. The band originally formed in Santiago, Chile in 1988 and now with new members, has started recording an EP at Oily Sound Studios in New Windsor, NY. The new material will be available by May/June of this year.
Many things have changed since Pirosaint disbanded in 1998 in Chile. Original drummer Ignacio Orellana has been working hard putting back together his original band with the help of his latest band mate Ron Buckner,who joined in May of 2011, when they decided leave Downfire to reactivate Pirosaint.
When Ignacio had the chance to replace Sacred Oath's drummer Kenny Evans for a few shows due to back problems, on the "Sacred Oath Tour" last Oct/Nov 2011, he asked guitarist Bill Smith to join Pirosaint as a side project. Since then, Bill has been working with Ron and Ignacio, putting the old and new material together.
The band has no steady singer yet and the vocal parts are going to be done by a friend of the band. The name of the vocalist will be revealed prior the release of the album. Check out the instumental version of the track "The Debt That All Man Pay" below.
