He is Legend – White Bat

he is legend

Release date: June 28, 2019
Label: Spinefarm Records

He is Legend is criminally underrated. Like a good bottle of whiskey, they get better with age. After nearly 15 years since their first record, the band has released White Bat. While He is Legend isn’t traditional heavy metal, they bring rock-n-roll swagger and their sound is best described as Hollywood sleaze crossed with deep south swagger. The album kicks off with the title track, an evil sounding rager about a serial killer. It doesn’t get more rock n’ roll than this folks. Powered by a raucous riff, Burn All Your Rock Records is a prime example of the band’s southern swagger and it may convince the listener to take the song’s ironic title literally. The head-bobbing riffs of Eye Teeth are made for the stage (if you’ve never seen this band live, it’s a party every night…go buy a ticket). The earworm riffs and chorus of Resister, Resist Her provide a catchy and cohesive culmination of all things He Is Legend. The ominous clean guitar and swamp conjuration of Uncanny Valley is creepy and dark. Finally, everything culminates in the booty-shaking grooves of Boogiewoman, a sludge ‘n’ roll goth fever dream.

These North Carolina boys are truly Legendary and they sure know how to rock.
