We are legend - The Band

It's the year 2010 and little by little experienced musicians (ex Stormwitch, ex Abraxas, ex Coronatus) get together for first sessions. While feeling each other and getting used to each other by covering well known metal hits, the first thought came up to join the metal scene again. One goes in search of an exceptional voice and finds it with Selin Schönbeck, an outstanding talent with excellent musical sense. At this point it was clear to everyone that something new would be born here - We are Legend was born.

The first songs were already created in 2011 and so the time was ripe to make the first studio recordings. The result was the 4-track EP We are Legend, which was released to the public for the first time at the end of January 2012 and immediately received overwhelming reviews. Already at this time, the melodic song structure interspersed with power and prog metal emerged more and more, which radiates a progessive vein through the targeted use of piano parts.

In the middle of 2012, the guys applied to the biggest German music competition, the German Rock and Pop Award. The unexpected happened - We are Legend went straight to the final round, won first place in 4 categories and thus emerged from the competition as the most successful metal band of the year.

Based on the top reviews of the demo EP, We are Legend quickly received a label contract. Between August 2012 and April 2013 the studio work for the first longplayer was on the agenda, for which they rented various studios. For the mix the band chose sound engineer Markus Teske (Mob Rules, Vanden Plas, Red Circuit) from Bazement Studio. Together with him a fresh and dynamic sound with powerful drums and driving guitars was created.

While the band played numerous festivals and concerts, fate decided in 2016 to put a temporary end to the hustle and bustle through illness. Dirk and Selin nevertheless continued to work on songwriting and found together again intensively in 2021 to work on the auccessor album. For the recordings, which took place between January and June 2021, the existing line-up was supplemented with newcomer Jimmy Konsta from Greece, who raises the bar even higher with his virtuoso guitar playing. This combination makes for a much deeper and more developed sound than ever before. "Fallen Angel" shines with an outstanding production and a modern powerful mix for which sound mastermind Simone Mularoni (DGM) shows responsibility. With the new album in the package, the band signed a worldwide label deal with the german metal label “Metalapolis Records”.

„Life is too short to do things you don't like to do.”
