Featuring forty-six minutes of pure metal, LOST LEGACY‘s sophomore release is a concept album serving as an act II to their debut full length, which was inspired by the tragedy of 9/11.
The band explains:
“The concept of ‘In The Name of Freedom’ is our way to thank our men and women of the armed forces for their sacrifice. It’s not about glorifying war, but these gallant people give so much and are often forgotten.”
The first single, ‘Front Line’, is a melodic track that has a heavy breakdown rhythm section prior to a soaring guitar solo. Dave Franco’s vocals are like a cannon and make this song a headbanger for everyone.

LOST LEGACY has been around since 1998 and their dedication to their craft shows. Having four excellent musicians and a vocalist that can play guitar and write riffs makes for a plethora of ideas. With Franco’s vocal capacity and range, it has transformed them to write music that enhances his vocal performances and gives the band the freedom to play intellectual metal.
LOST LEGACY discusses their expectations of the album:
“We believe that this album is a genuine representation of how we sound in a live setting. We take great pride in putting on a great show and when we approached this record, we wanted to have a live band feeling. Our fans will be pleased with the songs, the sound, and the production. The music has catchy guitar-driven riffs and soaring vocals. We promise it will deliver great energy and inspiration to fans of classic power metal.”
For fans of Fates Warning, Metal Church, and Testament, LOST LEGACY is classic power metal with a modern edge.

“NY’s Lost Legacy Has Been Turning Out the Metal for Over Ten Years. A Killer Six Piece Band Who Know Their Instruments And How To Use Them. Raw Power And Pure Talent Is What You Get.” – Mike The Big Cheese, Heavy Metal Mayhem
“Lost Legacy a metal band out of Bronx NY, that formed in 1998 The latest album “”The Aftermath” came out in 2009 which was a tribute to those who lost their lives in 9/11. Some of the songs are Towers, Time Will Heal, Light The Candles, their music is packed with energy, catchy riffs and powerful vocals. A tour de Force.” – Robin Souls, Metal Messiah Radio
“It has been my pleasure to work with the band members of Lost Legacy. I found them on social media back in 2008 and was immediately drawn in by the timbre of David Franco’s voice, the guitar riffs are executed in their presentation, and the bass and drums finish off this bands talent by providing a solid foundation for metal madness at its best! Their original music content is well written and has a powerful impact, as in one of their songs Towers. Their music will engulf you and take you on a journey, one that no one would easily forget. The metal world needs to move over and make room for Lost Legacy.” Syria, Producer, and former DJ on Renegade Radio
