“prog-jazz mania with relentless, wailing saxophones and off-kilter drum fills that would make most fans of Between The Buried And Me wonder what the fuck was put into their orange juice this morning” – Alternative Press Magazine

“combining technical metal and jazz in a way that underlines an unseen connection between the two styles” –

“Trioscapes is not just a prototypical jazz fusion band that you’d hear in some smoky club as background music. These songs have a groove to them, a pulse that beats to the tight-as-a-knot rhythm section” –

LEGION Signs With EOne/Good Fight Music

(NEW YORK, NY) – Columbus metalers LEGION signed a worldwide deal with eOne / Good Fight music and will release a brand new record in the spring of 2013.

LEGION: Michael Guilford (Vocals), Chris Dragics (Guitar), Alex Heiberger (Guitar), Mason Prince (Bass), Jake Rodriguez (Drums)

The band is currently gearing up for the END OF THE WORLD TOUR supporting JOB FOR A COWBOY this winter. Guitarist Alex Heiberger comments on the news:

“Over the last year and a half or so, we have been hard at work writing and looking for the perfect label to help us release our new material. When we were told that eOne / Good Fight was interested in us we could not have been more stoked. There are so many bands on the label that have influenced us since the beginning and it is an honor to now be a part of a great label.”

Gaining exposure through their own DIY touring and performances at the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, the band has come a long way in a short amount of time.

The video for Perverse Icon offered YouTube users a glimpse at just what Legion is capable of achieving on stage. Tracks like Disclosure of Sin and Righteous Dictation are emblematic of Legion’s skillful precision when it comes to balancing aggressive metallic destruction with trippy groove.
