SPB premiere Die A Legend return with Winning

Die A Legend - Winning

Norway’s Die A Legend is back, and Scene Point Blank is excited to debut a full stream of new record Winning, out on 10” vinyl on September 6 (Loyal Blood Records).

The new record is the third overall from the Tromsø Hardcore group founded in 2011, following a self-titled 2012 debut and 2013’s Progression Trough Retrospection.

Carl Christian Lein Størmer offers some thoughts about the band’s return to action:

A long way coming, we truly hope that this brutal piece of sub-cultural art will do some justice to those folks who know as Norway’s best kept secret and loudest live band. You'll get dual vocals, over the top “d-beat” riffage, breakdowns and the occasional polyrhythmic assault. Desperate, yet inspiring. Blatant, yet honest. True, yet deceiving.

Listen here:
