"We definitely get a lot of inspiration from Europe, mainly Norwegian bands such as Immortal, Bathory & Swedish band Arch Enemy. We are also influenced by movie scores from movies such as Braveheart, LOTR, The Thirteenth Warrior & also draw inspiration from Classical music."

1. Being an US band I have to remark that you have a European vibe on your sound (most significant influence is AMON AMARTH). What´s the kind of influences you got? 
We definitely get a lot of inspiration from Europe, mainly Norwegian bands such as Immortal, Bathory & Swedish band Arch Enemy (Michael Ammot is the lead guitarist idol). We are also influenced by movie scores from movies such as Braveheart, LOTR, The Thirteenth Warrior & also draw inspiration from Classical music. As a band we also find that getting away from the city & heading upstate to the mountains & enjoying nature helps the inspiration flow.

2. These things being mentioned, you have also a particular attraction for Norse mythology and Vikings. How this became to your interest?
Jay (vocalist) was the first to get into Norse mythology many years ago. In turn he introduced to Chris (lead guitar) & the love & interest built from there. We went on to read other stories such as The Poetic Eddas, The Sagas of Icelanders, History of the Kings of Norway etc. Their stories & others inspired us to write & compose.

3. How much time and effort do you spend on the band to get everything to look and sound the right way?
Countless hours. As a band we meet weekly to practice, rehearse our sound & perfect our playing technique & progress our style. We also spend many personal hours during the week practicing, composing & writing.

4. I am curious to know more things about your debut CD. Tell us something about the main idea of the 10 tracks. Where did you record? 
The main ideas behind the 10 tracks is warfare, betrayal & death. We recorded in New York in a basement studio.

5. Let´s talk about artwork. What would you say is a great album cover? What does it have to contain for it to be great? 
A great album cover would have to visually reflect what the songs are about both musically & lyrically.

6. You've been playing a number of shows recently and you have a reputation for your performances; are live shows a central aspect of Last Legion? 
Yes it definitely is, what you hear on CD is what you get live only more moving in a sense that the theatrics can be shown when we play.

7. How does LAST LEGION fit into your local/national scene? What kind of scene are we speaking of?
Honestly, the scene here in NY sux. The metal scene is very underground. It is not supported by mainstream society & a lot of venues. Basically it's 'pay to play' here, we don't call that support.

8. How much time do you spend on the band both physically but also mentally each day? Physically, 1 day a week for a couple of hours. Mentally for most of us, constantly.

9. Is it worth all the time and effort in the end? Fuck yeah What do you want with the band? What is the purpose of playing in a band? 
Ultimately we all just want to keep progressing our writing & music style. It is definitely worth all the hours, blood, sweat & beers because we love what we do. This our passion & we'll keep playing until Ragnarok.

10. With the easy access to internet you can spread your music across the globe just sitting in front of your computer. How much effort to you put into promoting the band world-wide?
We all work full time jobs plus life commitments & rarely get online, promoting is not our strong suit but we do try, especially when there is an upcoming show. We currently only promote through Facebook, ReverbNation & have our music playing on internet radio station Total Metal Radio. But we are looking for a booking agent that can possibly help us with this.
