The Legion of Doom (mash up group)
|The Legion of Doom|
|Genres||Mashup, post-hardcore, electronica|
|Associated acts||Face to Face|
The Legion of Doom consists of Chad Blinman and Trever Keith (of the California punk band Face to Face). Having worked together on many recording and production projects beginning in 1997, the two formed The Legion of Doom in 2004 to undertake a series of specialized creative projects.
The first of these projects was Incorporated, a mash-up album featuring mixes of various punk and hardcore bands. The album was completed in 2006, but due to some of the artists unwilling to allow the album to be released, the group recommended downloading the album after it was leaked from sources outside of the group off P2P Networks. On March 6, 2007 the album was released in physical format through Illegal Art.
The Legion of Doom has also contributed remixes and original music to film soundtracks such as Underworld: Evolution, Saw II and the Las Vegas TV Series. Other projects include the original score and music supervision for independent film "Eyes Front" and an album of original material (The Legion of Doom vs Triune).
The Legion of Doom regularly use samples of dialog from old films and other esoteric sources in their work. In some The Legion Of Doom songs, a male and a female voice can be heard speaking at certain points. These are the voices of Ken and Winnie from the 1950 movie "This Charming Couple". On the song "Lolita's Medicine" on the album "Incorporated", the male voice is from a 1967 anti-drug PSA called "Narcotics: Pit of Despair."
