We Are Legion are a band from Minnesota that plays a brutal mixture of blackened death metal, deathcore and thrash and this is a review of their 2013 album "Exit Humanity" which was released by ZeroBudget Records.
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls, black metal screams and blast beats and after awhile technical guitar solos and leads become a huge part of the recording along with some deathcore breakdowns and there is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording.
At times the faster sections bring in a very heavy black metal influence and you can also hear a decent amount of melody coming out of the guitar riffing and leads and the band manages to keep mostly everything in a very heavy musical direction and as the album progresses the band starts bringing in the energy of thrash metal and a couple of the later tracks brings in a brief use of classical guitars along with an instrumental before making a return back to a brutal direction.
We Are Legion plays a style of blackened death metal that is very heavy and brutal sounding as well as adding in elements of deathcore and thrash into their musical sound while also having a technical style of guitar leads which also make their music more diverse, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion We Are Legion are a very great sounding mixture of blackened death metal, deathcore and thrash and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Celestial Awakening" "Rejoice, for We Are The Damned" and "The Feast" and "Ecophagy". 8 out of 10.
