Legionary / Bio
Legionary is a Death/Thrash metal band with members hailing from the Bronx and New Jersey.
The band was established in 2007 by drummer Frank D'Erasmo. Although Frank put an album to works immediately, It wasn't until early 2010 that a complete line up had been achieved.
Legionary's self titled demo was released in September 2010, and quickly received high praise amongst NY and NJ metalheads. The demo includes two original tracks "Deceiver" and "Awakening Reprisal". The performance earned drummer Frank D'Erasmo the honor of being enlisted on "Sick Drummer Magazine" the website (http://www.sickdrummermagazine.com/index.php/the-drummers/death-grind/2064-frank-derasmo-.html).
Legionary's full length debut album titled "Arcane Divisions" was released on iTunes in April 2012. It consists of 10 pulverizing tracks, each of which has their own identity. The album continues where the demo left off, but this time, punishes you for nearly 50 minutes with riff after riff.
Legionary has just released a 4 song EP titled "Path Of Tyranny". The songs are politically themed, average around 4 minutes, and feature a new tuning for the band. The songs are in D standard tuning, which is a change from their usual C standard tuning. Regardless of the higher tuning, these songs are quite possibly Legionary's most intense to date, and feature a more thrashy/"epic" feel. The goal this time around was to have a more modern sounding mix. This EP also features the debut performances of Rory Smith Robinson on Lead Guitars, and Kevin O'Laughlin on Vocals (Both currently in the band Strychnia). D'Erasmo feels that this EP will once again make a statement to the Tri-State metal scene, that Legionary is not only one of the best unsigned Tri-State metal bands today, but the best.
