Henrik Selin Another great album from Icelandic Legend. A super nice hybrid of rock and electro. Krummi's voice is one of the best in the genre today. Perhaps not as direct as their debut album but ths is an album that truly grows on you. Favorite track: Captive.

This Icelandic synth rock band offers you one of the most interesting music experiences with Midnight Champion. The idea of electronics mixed with rock/metal may sound a bit goofy, especially if you're educated in modern music, but Legend do a great job of creating a symbiosis between all the instruments that you're gonna be drooling in the first few seconds from how seriously majestic their output is. It's Tangerine Dream meets Dream Theater. Highly recommended.
Favorite track: Children of the Elements.

andricongirl Not as much of a slam dunk as Fearless was (in my opinion). But damn, when Midnight Champion hits it really hits. Doesn't hurt that the album art and general visual design is super on point. Favorite track: Captive.

about

Five years after Icelandic electronic-rock duo LEGEND stunned with their debut Fearless, Krummi Bjorgvinsson and Dóri Björnsson are back with their second record, Midnight Champion.

The new record takes off from where the dark synth stylings of Fearless left off, with each song taking the listener into a seemingly different universe from the song before it. From moody, introspective (post)-rock, to dancefloor-worthy hits, to riffing metal-oriented tracks that show off Krummi's peerless voice, Midnight Champion is not simply a sequel to Fearless; it exceeds it in every way, making good on the promise that that first record was, as Krummi once said in an interview, "only the beginning."

Midnight Champion features stunning art which was specially commissioned from Branca Studio (Danko Jones, Pentagram, Black Dahlia Murder, Swans) and was recorded in Iceland at Studio Neptunus and Unstudios. The album is available worldwide on Artoffact Records as a double vinyl pressed on special cream colour (black also available), as well as CD digipak and a special edition cassette.
