Death & Legacy
Death & Legacy is a melodic metal group that emerged in Zamora, in 2013, as a response to the common musical concerns of five friends, Carlos drums, Jesus and Jose guitars, Hugo bass guitar and Ely vocals. With musical influences that go through Arch Enemy and Trivium to Metallica and S.A. they are mixed to give very heavy and marked bases that combine with the melodic line of the female voice and the male growls.
Their first Ep, ‘Start to Fall’, was recorded with producer Dan Diez of Sonovision Rock Lab Studios in Logroño, making a first national tour.
In winter 2014 they recorded their first LP, “Burning Death”, again with Dan Diez as producer, released on December 1 of that year; under the record label of CD MUSIC. In addition, brothers to the Toledo band Dulcamara and their album “El Antagonista” toured the national territory together with great critical and public success during the years 2014 and 2015.
On their “Burning Tour” they have shared the stage with great national and international bands as Angelus Apatrida, Soziedad Alkoholika, Noctem, Dark Moor, Avulsed, Awakening Sun, etc …
The second album, “Silence”, was released on October 3, 2016, with the incorporation of Manu Acilu on guitar to replace Jose.
It was mastered by renowned and prestigious European metal music guru Mika Jussila at the famed Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland. The video clip for the single preview, “What never will be” was directed and produced by Krea Films Producciones.
It was presented live on an extensive national and international tour, as a guest band of the Canadian band, The Agonist.
With their new formation, after the incorporation of Hynphernia to the voice, in 2020 they released their third and most ambitious album, “INF3RNO”. This album represents an introspective into the most extreme sounds of the band, both in the instrumentation and in the vocal lines, where Hynphernia demonstrates all the potential and talent that she has; but without forgetting in any case, the most melodic lines that their songs have developed to date.
The production and recording took place in the V3 studios in Madrid and in Finland, in the FINNVOX Studios, and was carried out by one of the most important tandems in world metal, Mikko Karmila in production and mixing and Mika Jusila in mastering . This couple is responsible for discographies as iconic as those of Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Stratovarius, HIM, etc …
The design and conceptual artwork has been developed by Gustavo Sazes, in whose career he has worked for such important bands as Arch Enemy, Kamelot, Machine Head, Epica and a long etcetera.
The whole theme revolves around Hell, about the different conceptions of it, and this is reflected in an extensive artwork that will carry, in an exclusive edition, visions of Dante’s 9 circles of Hell.
As a surprise, a very special guest, Isra Ramos (Avalanch, Amadeüs) who brings all the elegance and class that his voice treasures for 3 of the songs included in this new album.
