Legend (not to be confused with the NWOBHM band of the same name) hailed from the USA, (New Haven, Connecticut to be exact,) and straddled the line between '70s hard rock and the Heavy Metal scene that was developing at the time. In 1979, Legend released their one and only album From The Fjords through Empire Records. This fascination with vikings and Norse landscapes predates Enslaved by thirteen years. Musically Legend had quite a bit in common with another unknown proto-metal band some thousand miles away, Manilla Road. From The Fjords is pure rocking bliss from prow to keel, the laid back vocal delivery of Kevin Nugent, the great songs, and you can't talk about this album without a mention of drummer Raymond Frigon's electrifying performance. Sadly, Kevin died in his sleep in 1983, before he could see this fantastic album become a sought after cult album. From The Fjords has been bootlegged, repressed, and dubbed over and over again. Slough Feg, America's greatest active Heavy Metal band paid tribute to the genius of Legend with a cover of "The Wizard's Vengeance"on their 1999 album "Twilight of the Idols." It is through such noble efforts that the Legend remains alive.
