Dawn Of Genesis


Gates Of Hell Records


Gates Of Hell Records proudly presents the debut album of Finland's LEGIONNAIRE!

LEGIONNAIRE’s music is based on powerful twin guitar harmonies and medieval style epic melodies, while the lyrics often have influences from ancient or medieval mythology but also by other fictional themes such as Sci-Fi. The band creates an original, personal sound, though you can definitely hear tons of influences in their music: old Scandinavian metal, classic NWOBHM-style galloping riffs, an overall epic feel that brings back to mind US metal bands such as Liege Lord, Brocas Helm and obscure US epic metal release from the mid 80s. In a few words: traditional Heavy Metal!

The band consists of Aku Tiensuu (vocals & guitar), Petri Ranta (guitar), Frans Kivelä (bass) and Akseli Häärä (drums). Aku, Petri and Frans are the three original members of the group while Akseli was asked to join LEGIONNAIRE in late 2014 to replace the original drummer, Heikki Härkönen. Before this first official release, LEGIONNAIRE have released two demo tapes, ''Legionnaire'' in 2014 and ''The Enigma of Time'' a year after the first one, both on cassette format.

“Dawn of Genesis” was mastered by Wicked Ischianus of Mausoleum Gate and will be released on 26/05/2017 on CD, LP and digitally. Recommended for fans of NWOBHM, Liege Lord, Brocas Helm, The Lord Weird Slough Feg, early German power/speed metal! With bands like LEGIONNAIRE Heavy Metal will never die!
