Japan is the last place most people consider when they think of pounding, relentless industrial doom/death metal. But the Land of the Rising Sun is exactly where this ferocious and brutal duo, Legion of Andromeda, calls home.
Legion of Andromeda’s debut LP, Iron Scorn, has already been released on vinyl (via Unholy Anarchy in North America and At War With False Noise in Europe), and now the dark tyranny will be available on a four-panel gatefold jacket digipak CD on September 11th, via Crucial Blast. Pre-order the CD here, and the digital version here.
If, however, you prefer to hear what you’re getting into, you can stream Iron Scorn in its entirety on Bandcamp. The constant and omnipresent hammering, much like a blacksmith’s pounding, is off-putting at first, but trust me when I say that it soon becomes a crucial element to the album’s overall tone, if not endearing and desired by the hypnotized listener.
