Danish thrash metal purveyors PERSECUTOR retaliates with their brand new single and music video ‘Legacy‘, which is out today. The band delivers on all fronts with its direct songwriting and razor-sharp riffing embedding classic genre traits with a modern approach, a keen melodic sense, varied arrangements and a lyrical theme spawned from the deepest pits of the human mind. Andreas Linnemann (Baest, Hajn) is responsible for the clear and punchy production and the vivid artwork is created by Matt Hatting.

PERSECUTOR states on ‘Legacy’:

“The inspiration for ‘Legacy’ comes from many sources, but composer Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest for this one. But since none of us can play classical music or have access to those kinds of instruments, the goal was to produce an epic and melodic riff on the guitar and let that be the hook and the foundation of the track. The theme in ‘Legacy’ is to live for something and nurture your passion which in our case is music”

PERSECUTOR was founded in Denmark in 2018 by a group of young musicians with the clear aim of playing aggressive, melodic thrash. PERSECUTOR moved as fast as their music, and in 2019, the hard hitting debut album ‘Rebirth’ saw the light of day, followed by a handful of intense local shows, proving the band’s worth as an engaging live act. Following the pandemic in 2020, the band kept itself busy releasing the two standalone singles “Cannibal Island” and “The Blitz, and now they return with the single ‘Legacy’, which is part of a bigger release later this year.
