LEGION / Bio

Formed and based in Central New Jersey by Guitarist/brothers Frank and Joe Adamo. Legion is a hard driving, powerful and melodic Heavy Metal band. The band's sound and song-writing style has been critically acclaimed by many in the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal media and has garnered the band a respectable global fan base. In the summer of 2004 Legion printed a four song demo as a sampler. Inspired by the many favorable reviews of the demo, the band finished recording and mixing the album in early 2005. Released on June 15, 2005 "Shadow of the King" immediately received rave reviews both overseas and abroad - culminating in Legion being offered a spot on the German "Heavy" Magazine's Metal Crusade XI CD sampler (with the track "Medicine Man" being selected for the CD). In 2006 Majestic Rock Records re-released the album the album in both Europe and Japan. The band then primarily focused on the follow-up to "Shadow of the King" while receiving both local and world-wide radio airplay, as well as more stellar reviews and interviews (Highlighted by being selected for Tony Iommi's "Black Sunday Radio Show Series 2").
During writing and rehearsals for the follow up CD personal problems and line-up instability constantly plagued the band. After going though a myriad of different vocalist, 2010 saw the arrival of Vocalist Ralph Gibbons and work immediately commenced on the album. With the new album WarBeast nearing completion 2015 will also see the announcement of Legion's new lineup.
Currently the band is seeking a new Record label, Management and Representation
