FINALLY!

Go to the discography page, then the 'Legions...' extended info button, then to "behind the scenes" and voila.

We've nearly got the same thing done (in even more depth) for 'Worlds' and hopefully for 'Shadows...' too (it'd probably just consist of me moaning though ;) )

This should give people a bit more background about the record and what we were up to at the time. It's like the most interesting bits of interviews all put together in one place.I always enjoy anecdotal stuff about recordings and what happens in bands, and hopefully you will too.

Rayner and myself sat down a while ago and simply talked while I typed, and this is the result, pretty much verbatim (minus some umm's, aaa's and yeah yeah yeah's).

Enjoy! Comments encouraged!

Awsome, I enjoyed reading that.

I had no idea Brutallica printed the original layout, I used to buy that mag about 6-7years ago haha. Oh the memories...

Was the Booklet held together with just 1 staple like most of their other releases?

The booklet had 2 staples I think, mega budget!

Forgot to mention, the lyrical explanations are also more in depth now, with comments from Rayner too.

regarding the lyrical ecplinations

(dreaming in splendour)
'The middle section has a weird guitar part that some annoying people keep saying is actually a keyboard, even though it plainly says "no keyboards in these songs" in the inlay! IT’S A GUITAR! '

This has always sent a shock down my spine & made all my hair stand up ( I AM... EVERLASTING 'dudla BOOM'!) Then it goes into the deeper (neck pickup switch??) part which is both beautiful & haunting.

I think I mentioned afew years ago how I had a spooky experience where that section was playing in my head, but when you mentioned you had an encounter in the studio it sort of clarified it for me a little!

I'm seriously addicted to anecdotes - and this is great stuff to read!
