Having already released a sold-out split 7" on Toronto's Artoffact Records, Legend and Sólstafir members now collaborate again as a super group to slam out an amazing cover of Legend's Runaway Train.
Icelandic dark-pop act Legend has been quietly recording the follow-up to their outstanding debut record Fearless, but that didn't stop them from taking some time out last Fall to jam out a banging version of Runaway Train, one of the band's live high-lights. Legend frontman Krummi Björgvinsson (Döpur, Esja, Mínus) enlisted long-time friends from Icelandic post-metal group Sólstafir, and the six-person super group spent a cold Icelandic afternoon at Studio Neptunus, Legend keyboardist Halldór (Dóri) A. Björnsson's recording space.
The result is a rough and raw, rock'n'roll version of the track. A special video was then recorded by longtime friend of both bands, Brynjar Snær Þrastarson. The video, shot in one day in an abandoned industrial factory near the raging sea, fits the stark live take of Runaway Train and the turbulent times Iceland is now living through.
