Well, The Legion's follow-up to Unseen To Creation is just as dull as I was afraid it would be. Here we have a disc of nine speedy songs that sound almost exactly the same. I would say this sounds like Marduk, but you'd have to take all the interesting parts out for this to sound like Marduk. This sort of thing is exactly the prepackaged, overproduced, under-intelligent commercialized "Black" metal that all the underground bands hate. Not a horrible album, but after 45 minutes you feel like if you never hear another mindless blastbeat again it will be too soon. The Legion have produced a disc that will make good background noise, or a good beer coaster, but a good Black Metal album? Uh no, I don't think so.
