LEGEND: they are the new ones - yet they are not new. They are Krummi Björgvinsson, artist and singer/songwriter of the famed rock band Minus. And Halldor Björnsson, composer/producer of innumerable works of musical mastercraft.
Over the past 10 years these two friends had both separately become giants in the Scandinavian music scene. But, LEGEND had to become.
As the tale tells, one night their passion for epic arrangements, plus a seemingly quasi-telepathic studio work process - led a song called 'Devil In Me' to be born. This song was leaked to an Icelandic radio station and soared up to the top of the charts.
Realising this had become more than an experiment, the duo took the name LEGEND, where spiritual conflict of darkness and light permeates their music, leading many to label it as 80s goth electro. But, rest assured, their debut album Fearless(2012) is luminous, as these two talents combined shine brightly. The band's frontman and songwriter Krummi, is no stranger to the music world, having catapulted post hardcore act Minus to deals with Sony, Victory Records, Smekkleysa, and One Little Indian. LEGEND's debut album Fearless was self-released on vinyl and CD in Iceland April 2012 to astonishing reviews, including comparisons to what reads as a who's who of modern music. An essential record that will keep giving back. Highly conceptual, dark and danceable, this new-darkwave duo have the big ones it takes to back up their name. LEGEND signed to the Canadian label Artoffact Records. A perfect home for a band like LEGEND. The album Fearless was re-released on 11th of December 2013 in North America, Canada and Europe.
LEGEND´s latest release was collaborative split 7? with Sólstafir.The extremely limited release found the two bands covering one of each others songs, with Sólstafir turning LEGEND’s ‘Runaway Train’ into an epic, windswept metal voyage, highlighting singer Addi Tryggvason’s unique vocal talents along the way.
LEGEND, on the other hand transformed Sólstafir’s hit ‘Fjara’ into a sumptuously dark, Depeche Mode style electro-pop anthem.To close the collaborative circle, both bands made a live video available for viewing on youtube.
LEGEND are now currently finishing their 2nd album Midnight Champion. Coming out this year(2017) on Artoffact. This sophomore effort is a much darker, heavier and more metal then their debut. Another epic journey into the dark minds of LEGEND.
Detailed release date coming soon.
