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.
 
"Icy synthesizers approximating Iceland's arctic sheets before battling drums hammer down like marching soldiers."
-iTunes Editorial
 
"Bridges the gap between 80s dancefloor goth and just-the-tip darkwave; Gabriel-esque synthpop meathooks keep them tethered to the tiles."
-Jordan Campbell, Last Rites
 
"[Legend's] 2012 record 'Fearless' is a must-have for anyone interested in dark-minded music."
-Hannah May Kilroy, Terrorizer
 
"The perfect antidote to all that forced holiday jollity."
-Ben Rayner, The Toronto Star
