The fourth album, Zodiac is named after (but not dedicated to) the infamous Zodiac killer who terrorised the San Francisco area in the 1960′s & 70’s. Legion’s concept for the album was to investigate how deep the human capacity for evil and self-deception could stretch. The answers may lie within the tracks on the album. Having been subjected to repeated listenings during the mixing of the album, Legion can confirm that listeners with weak mental capacity should definitely not be auditioning this at parties. Recorded: May 2001 to June 2002 at ‘The 733 Digital Matrix’
