Like Graveyard, their nearest common ancestor (?), in the same way that two twins are alike–
One is slutty, and obvious, and ready to party (Graveyard), while the other is a bit weird, obsessed with the occult, and much frostier than her sister (Witchcraft)….
How is Legend like Hisingen Blues? Witchcraft is the same band as Graveyard:
Whereas Graveyard is rowdy teenagers at a kegger in the middle of a sweltering summer, Witchcraft are the same members, years later, in late Autumn/ early winter– chillier production, more sober lyrics, a bit more involved with the occult….
Legend is as hard as hard rock gets without actually being metal (not a bad thing at all)… you forget that hard rock done right (and this so rarely) is quite an awesome thing…. It’s AOR rock, if that still existed; very hooky and heavy at the same time….
There are great, actual songs, here– and these, easy to play (learned two while tuning a guitar in a common tuning, Eb) while still being awesome… singer (and no longer guitarist) Magnus’ voice is rippingly distinct, his lyrics even more so.
In all honesty, it surprised me how much I liked this one; my year-end list was almost exclusively grind and doom metal, but this one hits the top 5 of the year, easy; probably top 3 or 2….
