Atlantic Records released the remix EP Awake and Remixed digitally on March 22. The EP comprises four remixes from the album Awake by ridiculously huge Christian rock band Skillet, including one by The Legion of Doom. (The other three remixes have fancy names, but the remixers aren’t credited, so we have no idea who did them.)

You can grab the track (or the whole EP) from iTunes or Amazon.
After a very long wait, our new album The Legion of Doom vs Triune has been released! The story behind this album’s release is a long one…suffice it to say that after holding onto it for way too long, our esteemed distributor has finally (and unceremoniously) unleashed it on the world. They were going to release CDs, but they didn’t. (Digital downloads only.) They were going to do some promotion, but they didn’t. (Not a peep, even on their website.) They’ve left it up to us to get the word out.
The story behind the album itself is a better one: We made a record with Triune — prolific rap battle veteran, member of Footsoldiers, and one of the premier emcees of the Los Angeles underground. Triune brought his rhymes and one-of-a-kind delivery, and some friends (Raphi, Motoe Blizzid, HS Couture, Xhale and Addicus Brown). We brought loads of samples from old public domain film soundtracks, original instrumentation and our signature Legion beats and production. This collision of talent and styles yielded a record that is part hip-hop, part trip-hop, part indie rap, part indie rock. Strange, dark, and densely layered, this is not a typical hip-hop record.
You can hear every track on our facebook page or our iLike page. Also check out our fancy new MySpace page.
The Legion of Doom vs Triune is available now from Amazon, iTunes, and most other major download providers.
The Legion of Doom have turned a new mix loose on the unsuspecting intertubes. This one mashes Ceci Bastida‘s latin pop track “Muevete” and the 1984 Smiths classic “What Difference Does It Make?” with guest vocals by our friend Hilsyde.
Registered users can get the mix free on our DOWNLOADS page.
“Unintended Consequences,” a new track from the forthcoming THE LEGION OF DOOM vs TRIUNE album was used in the film Pathology, which is now available on DVD (get it from Amazon). Lakeshore made a promotional video/trailer using the song (and featuring Triune), which is included in the DVD’s special features.
The track is also featured on the Pathology Soundtrack album (get it on CD or MP3).
