NIGHT LEGION Is The New Power Metal Project For STU MARSHALL

Artist: 
NIGHT LEGION, the new high energy Australian power metal band led by guitarist / producer Stu "The Hammer" Marshall (Dungeon / Empires of Eden / Death Dealer / Blasted to Static) has announced the addition of Vo Simpson as their new lead vocalist.
Stu Marshall has checked in with the following comment:
During the writing of our upcoming debut album, the band went through some sudden personnel changes. Moving forward, I am very pleased to announce my amazing friend Vo Simpson, as the new lead vocalist for the band. Just think Halford meets old school Tate and you have an idea of where Vo's vocal abilities can be filed under. We have been long time friends and to have vocals that scream like Vo's is a dream to write heavy riffs for. The band is psyched for the new upcoming debut album and we are currently working toward securing a worldwide release via an as yet determined label during 2017.
Forged from the fires of internationally acclaimed metal acts Empires of Eden, Death Dealer, Blasted To Static, Darker Half and Aussie metal royalty Dungeon, Night Legion unleashes razor-sharp power metal to make your ears bleed.
Night Legion, is the latest creation of guitarist / producer Stu "The Hammer" Marshall, known as the mastermind of the all star metal project Empires of Eden, stage right guitarist in heavy metal super group Death Dealer alongside six string legend and partner Ross the Boss (Manowar co-founder) and the ripping axeman in shred metal newcomers Blasted to Static fronted by iconic vocalist Jeff Martin (the legendary voice of Racer X).
In Night Legion, Marshall reunites with bassist Glenn Williams, a crowd favourite on Dungeon’s large-scale tours and drummer Clay T, of Blasted To Static fame. Joining them front and center is screaming lead vocalist Vo Simpson who also plays in Sydney thrashers Darker Half.
With an uncompromising and aggressive style that echoes Rob Halford's trademark microphone meltdowns, Simpson's voice cuts a blazing trail of destruction that is second to none.
Night Legion has recently begun work on recording their debut, slated for a 2017 release, and is in the early stages of the search for a future label who will offer the most suitable home for the album. This unconquerable touring animal also has its sights on Japan, Europe and possibly Australia in early to mid-2017.

BLASTED TO STATIC is a incredible new band from the US and Australia made up of seasoned and established musical virtuosos.

Headed up by the incendiary Jeff Martin, vocalist for US metal legends Racer X who has fronted the band throughout their entire 9 album discography and who has influenced an entire genre of guitar players, Jeff continues to display his incredible vocal range with Blasted To Static.

Joined by Australian fret-melting guitar wizard Stu "The Hammer" Marshall (Death Dealer / Empires of Eden / Dungeon), the duo's goal was to bring back high octane vocals combined with riffing mayhem and outstanding guitar shredding to the masses.

The rhythm section is held down by the tornado like talent of bassist Rev Jones (Steelheart / Michael Schenker Group / Leslie West / Gundriver) and Australian session demigod drummer Clay T. who lay it hard and heavy providing a massive musical groove for the band.

Blasted To Static represents an uncompromising and intense odyssey from veterans of the metal scene. But for all the high-octane, hook-laden riffing mayhem, the band’s versatility also encompasses acoustic elements and more subtle, understated interludes. “We’re embracing an organic approach with this band,” says guitarist Stu Marshall. “Don’t expect music from a single genre - Blasted To Sttatic is all about full artistic freedom, so you might even hear echoes of Black Sabbath or Queen.”

With a deafening roar of amplified power, Blasted To Static deliver a cutting-edge musical offering that is both refreshingly new, and also one that re-imagines the hallmarks of 80’s guitar histrionics and pyrotechnics, coming down as a category 5 sonic hurricane that will blow the speakers off your stereo.

New Metal Project BLASTED TO STATIC

 
Brace yourself for a vicious onslaught of shredding rock unlike anything you've heard in a long time. More explosive than a hailstorm of hand grenades, BLASTED TO STATIC delivers a cutting-edge offering that is both refreshingly new, and re-imagines the hallmarks of 80’s guitar histrionics as a sonic hurricane that will blow the roof off 2015.
 
Headed up by the incendiary vocals of Jeff Martin (Racer X, Badlands, Leatherwolf, Surgical Steel) and fret-melting wizardry of Stu Marshall (Death Dealer, Empires of Eden, Ex-Dungeon), with the rhythmic talents of Rev Jones (Steelheart, MSG, Black Symphony) on bass and session demigod Clay T on drums, Blasted to Static represents an uncompromising and intense odyssey from veterans of the metal scene.
 
But for all the high-octane, hook-laden riffing mayhem, the band’s versatility also encompasses acoustic elements and more subtle, understated interludes. “We’re embracing an organic approach with this band,” says guitarist Stu Marshall. “Don’t expect music from a single genre, Blasted to Static is all about full artistic freedom, so you might even hear echoes of Black Sabbath or Queen.”
 
Recording is already well underway for the currently untitled debut album, and concert dates for late 2015/early 2016 are in the planning stages.
 
Dangerous, unstoppable and impossible to predict, this savage yet focused shock-and-awe campaign will make any jaded metal fan sit the f__k up and take notice.
 
Shaking off the tired, formulaic monotony that many of us have become accustomed to, Blasted to Static blazes ahead into a golden future of guitar ripping rock.
