This is the demo cassette of the one of the last H8000 bands born in the 90’s. Legion was a band close to Vitality and hailing from Knokke at the east side of the Belgian coast and the Jabbeke area. These places are both situated around Bruges.
They play recognisable Metalcore, typical to the mid 90’s H8000 style. They started out when the scene had gone passed the glory days, that’s why they did not get bigger or lived longer. They released a CD on Days Of Fury in 1999, a British label and Good Life distributed it over here.

The demo cassette has 5 songs. One of the tracks is a long lost tune, that was stuck in my head for ages. I sometimes recalled the melody and the lyrics inside my mind but couldn’t find where it came from for ages. I had picked it up during a live show of Legion way back in 1998. After hearing this demo I can finally be sure it is a Legion track and that is called “It’s Coming Down”. And rest assure that I remembered the lyrics correctly…
I have gotten the tape in trade with a fellow collector from Belgium. Not many of these are still around I guess, so I digitized it for the few people who still read this blog to hear and enjoy.
