I lost interest in them after in torment in hell. Still jam the first 5 albums pretty regularly.

Their hat is old and worn, but I'm sure most folk in the know will give their first three albums a stamp of approval.

I don't even know what their lineup is anymore :redneck:

Bought scars the day it came out and was disappointed with it. Everything since insineratehymn just doesn't do it for me. Even the amon album the hoffman brothers did was missing something.

Underrated? Don’t know about your part of the world but around these parts, they’re one of the most talked about in the local death metal circles even after all these years but no one really talks about anythIng beyond their first 3 albums. :redneck:

They’re one of the first bands a death metal fan would listen to back in the day (myself included). And if you could only see the ridiculous amount of underground death metal acts here covering lunatic of gods creation or sacrificial suicide in the clubs. :gaylol: I guess it’s because that we’re pretty much a roman catholic-dominated country that a band with inverted crosses and tongue-in-cheek satanic lyrics would really cater to young savages back then.

Yeah that's what I meant. Not talked about on here ever but world wide it's just mainly the first 3-4 records. I just don't see much fan fare for them anymore

I think part of that is because Benton has basically become a punchline.

Pretty much. I mean, one can only write so many songs about how much you hate god before that well runs dry.

Mad at God
Fuck Your God
To Hell With God
How Can You Call Yourself a God
Blame it on God
Christ Don't Care

Could those titles possibly be more phoned in?

i'd say they're properly rated, their original shit is adored by everyone and all the forgettable shit they've churned out has been left by the wayside. where it belongs :judge:

I'm not mad foreskin fungus like tuned into metal in general so I don't have a firm grasp on how appreciated they are, but I have heard that they're one of the few death metal bands that earn a livable wage exclusively off their material, so there's that.

Coincidentally I was just watching some guitar covers of stuff off Legion. For how known this band is it is kind of surprising to me that as far as I can tell no other band sounds a whole lot like their first two albums. Meanwhile Incantation and Suffocation have been copied over and over.

I don't know what the Hoffman brothers were on when they wrote legion but some of that material is so fucking bizarre. It's kind of the same with early Morbid Angel where they're clearly members of an established scene of music, but nobody really sounds quite like them.

Well legion is notable is for being recorded in standard E tuning which is why the guitars sound so sharp and everything had to be ‘fast’ :redneck:

They had to slow down when they recorded once upon a cross cause it would have been something like 24 minutes :redneck:

I probably won't be able to find the article but I did at one point read that the two guitars were recorded or maybe tuned differently. I know mad foreskin fungus like little about the odds and ends of music so I probably never quite understood what I was reading. But ever since then I have noticed that they sound slightly different. If memory serves they also pulled a Slayer and gave each Hoffman their own channel. Maybe not though.

Back in 92 or so I traded my cousin some Metallica cassettes for Legion. It was worth it. Been a fan ever since.
