The Legion - _Unseen to Creation_
(Listenable Records, 2003)
by: Matthias Noll (6 out of 10)
If you're into recent Marduk but wish they'd be a lot more technical, and you enjoy the clinical, Emperor-derived black meets death metal of Zyklon or Myrkskog, then Sweden's The Legion should interest you. _Unseen to Creation_ is the ultimate album to bridge the gap between yawning along to either of the above mentioned bands. Putting it into a CD changer set to random play mode together with _World ov Worms_ or _World Funeral_ will surely do the trick of notably prolonging the time until either release gets boring. The quality might be lower during the Legion tracks, but they won't substantially disturb the flow.

Let's move on to a German lesson now. In the former GDR, people referred to restaurant food which had the purpose of filling one's stomach rather than be especially tasty as "Saettigungsbeilage". An "at least you'll get yourself stuffed side-order" would be the somewhat crude translation. "Markslon" fans take note, your Saettigungsbeilage is ready for consumption now, served with a clean, professional Abyss production, totally average screeching vocals, excellent technicality but nearly nonexistent songwriting skills, wish-we-were-black-metal leanings and -- fucking necrotrueness, can there be a better selling point?! -- the current and certainly talented Marduk drummer among all the norsecore madness.
