EMQ’s with DEATH & LEGACY
Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Zamora, Spain based Melodic Metal band, Death & Legacy. Huge thanks to rhythm guitarist Jesús for taking part!
What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?
I am Jesús and I play rhythm guitar. I founded the band with Charly (drummer) in 2013, in Zamora, Spain. We are five friends, we played in other bands, other music, but we wanted to play together, it is very funny between us and we love the same music.
How did you come up with your band name?
In the first album, the lyrics tell a story about death, and about something very important for us. And we sing in English, so “Death & Legacy”.
What country are you from and what is the metal scene like there?
We come from Spain, and the scene is very rich in bands, artists, styles, languages, tours… but, it is a very hard music for popular TV and radio… there is no help for anybody… and now, with the Covid-19 pandemic, the scene is death.
What is your latest release (Album, EP, Single, Video)
We released our third album, “INF3RNO”. It was recorded at FINNVOX studios and the artwork was created by Gustavo Sazes.
‘Dead Soul’ (Official Lyric Video)
