Season of Mist proudly announces the signing of OF LEGENDS, the metal side project from Luis Dubuc, of THE SECRET HANDSHAKE fame. After extensive tours and nice billboards entries, Dubuc announced the creation of OF LEGENDS a few months ago.

The kind of music somebody coming from a much groovier place could write – only with a ton of anger and hate on top!
