Legion Of Dissent


Legion Of Dissent brings you the heaviest underground psychedelic blues metal vibes to make your soul get LOUD Ö all with a trippy 'n' delicious hip-hop flavoured chaser!

Transcendental and socio-spiritual concepts collide with mad earthy organic riffery in this highly dynamic visual soundfest. This is a band of four Kiwi musicians with an appetite for crafting a homegrown multidimensional musical revolution in which you are warmly invited to participate, celebrate and indulge in ...

Introducing first up Ö Legion Of Dissentís legendary front man Mr Archaeo (pronounced Ark-Aye-Oh). Hailing originally from Ahmedabad, India, Mr Archaeo spent time up in the shadows of Hollywood, Los Angeles studying film making before deciding that Tauranga, New Zealand would be the next place to experience his unique shamanic vocal stylings as a spoken word artist and rapper for a number of both solo and collaborative projects which also included three tracks on The D-Day Saints self titled album.

LODís guitarist and founding member Baz Mantis has spent the past decade as a recording artist, music video producer and audio engineer with a diverse range of music acts, spanning from New Age relaxation music to hardcore metal, all of which influences are drawn from in various measures to help create the Legionís attacking blues based hard rocking style and groovecentric focus.

Taking up the lower octaves is the 4 string sentinel Kingsley Smith. As a member of the legendary group Knightshade for the past 2 years, his keyboard skills have provided their hard rock with the extra sonic fatness and vigour that the band needed. He continues to work with them behind the scenes as they prepare for their final song releases and live DVD. But hot on the heels of this is his own solo music project, Audio Storm, which sports a debut album and a new one due out later this year. Kingsley, aka DJ Kingz, also hosts & produces The NZ Hard Rock Show which has been supporting independent NZ rock for the last 2 years. He revisits his experience as the bassist for the Black Sabbath tribute act Sabbatage with a return to solid form as LODís rhythmic anchor and onstage tour de force.

Carrying the tempo on the skins, drumming up a storm and laying down a backbone superstructure worthy of carrying the weight and attitude of a true Dissenter is Sol Radley, a veteran of 14 years playing drums in a myriad array of bands and recently graduating with a diploma in music production and performance. Sol's beatmeistery is guaranteed to make you want to move and groove in as many directions as the music takes you; whirling dervish one minute then Judge Dredd slo mo sequence the next.

Legion of Dissent disbanded in 2017.
