Icelandic electronic-industrial project that draws comparisons to Depeche Mode, NIN, and Project Pitchfork.
Legend is an Icelandic duo that experiments with electronic music. The band’s frontman, Krummi, is no stranger to the music world, having catapulted post punk-rock act Minus to deals with Sony, Victory Records, Smekkleysa, and One Little Indian. Legend’s debut album Fearless was self-released in Iceland to astonishing reviews, including comparisons to what reads as a who’s who of modern music. An essential record that will keep giving back. Legend just recently signed a record deal with the Canadian industrial/synthpop record label Artoffact which is the leading label in that genre. Fearless will be re-released on the 11th of December all across Canada, North America and Europe by Artoffact rec. The live show consists of a drummer, synth keyboard player/programmer and a singer. Dark and very loud!

“Dark, depressing music that’s still fun and danceable, in the same vein as Dorsetshire or The Tear Garden.”
—Rebecca Louder, Reykjavik Grapevine
“They cannot do much wrong.”
“Atmospheric industrial, eerie goth and pop with a dash of Icelandic oddity.”
—Torsten Schaefer, Sonic Seducer
“‘Fearless is DARK. Dark as in sexy-death dark. Dark as in heavy gothic shades of decaying grandeur dark.”
—Reykjavik Sex Farm
