REVIEW FROM OLD ‘IMA’ BLOG…
For a demo, ‘Mark Of The Legion’ is head and shoulders above the average demo from most other new Death Metal outfits. The production is to a really high standard that even a lot of established bands would be more than happy with. Not overly polished! But clear with each player more than adequately represented in the mix. The song writing and musicianship is also to a high standard. There‚Äôs nothing flashy or self indulgent. Just well thought out, no bullshit Death Metal. Every riff is methodically crafted and the band flow seamlessly between mid-tempo and fast paced. Chris’ vocals are a deep throaty growl which suit the music well and are complimented excellently by McGhee’s backing vocals. And Connolly’s drumming throughout is top notch stuff altogether.

‘Warthrone’ sneaks out of the stereo with a subtle intro piece which leads into a mid-tempo riff that builds before launching into full throttle speedy Death Metal mode. At it’s most intense the track touches on Black Metal thanks to the ferocious drum blasting and enhanced by John McGhee’s caustic backing vocals. The band easily alternate between styles and pace which adds a good balance throughout the tracks duration. ‘Predatory Annihilation’ and ‘City Of Fire’ both kick off in high gear right from the off and just don’t let up. Both are quality tracks with plenty tempo and riff changes mixing things up and keeping them from becoming stale. There’s also a real focus on heavy and fluid mid-tempo riffs with ‘The Ancient Massacre’ in particular following this formula pretty much for it’s duration. SLAYER, TESTAMENT, DEATH, BOLT THROWER, HAIL OF BULLETS and UNLEASHED are all cited as influences and it shows through in spades on all four tracks.

The demo is available to stream from the bands Facebook, Soundcloud and Bandcamp sites and CD copies can be bought from their Bandcamp also. Well worth picking picking up!
