A dark, dense shadow marches along without falter. It's massive wall of sound can be overwhelming at first, but to the right listener, it is beautiful.

After you "get into" this style of music, you'll discover a masterpiece here. The mood is very grave, as the lyrics deal with the book of Revelations. Taking on the Eastern imagery, there are noticeable Eastern-sounding guitars built into the wall of sound which carries the album. There is very little riffing or soloing, and the album is fairly steady-paced and uniform with Clayton's searching vocals soaring over a web of instrumentation. The album is definitely meant to be listened to as a single piece, and each track flows into the next, with some spoken interludes and transitions.

Although it can take several listens to appreciate, Legend Part I is a masterpiece which leaves the listener anxious to continue the journey with the rest of the trilogy.

Rating: 10/10

Nice review :-). It´s actually not a triology though as there is an unreleased fourth album yet to released in the Legend series.
