Revel in the beauty of darkness...
Beyond the world of light, there exists a hidden realm where creatures of the night revel in the beauty of darkness. Nox Arcana invites you to enter the esoteric order of the Legion of Shadows to explore the mysteries of the night as you immerse yourself in a gothic soundscape of haunting melodies, eerie sound effects and pulse-pounding, symphonic orchestrations. In addition to Nox Arcana's darkly romantic and haunting original pieces, the album also features Vargo's gothic version of Bach's classic "Toccata and Fugue".
Nox Arcana founder Joseph Vargo, who has been producing dark, haunting works with various bands and musical projects for over two decades, dedicates Legion of Shadows to his loyal listening audience. "To celebrate Nox Arcana's 10 year anniversary, I wanted to create an album that was entirely dedicated to Nox Arcana fans—our very own 'Legion of Shadows'. Our fans are the best. They are a very creative group of artistic-minded people who find beauty in darkness. I get countless letters from fans relaying their own stories of how the music of Nox Arcana has inspired their own artistic spirits. Many of them have definite ideas and suggestions for concepts and musical themes. I took all of this to heart, and used their input as the basis for the tracks on the new album.
"My goal with Nox Arcana has always been to create music from the shadows for creatures of the night, and I wanted this album to really reflect all aspects of this mindset. There will be a variety of dark anthems with a theme that centers around the mysteries of the night and it's various haunted denizens, with an underlying story about lost love, melancholy memories of ghosts from the past, and forlorn souls who are empowered by embracing the darkness within."
Legion of Shadows I Am An Eternal Member Of The Legion Of Shadows! 5 kristopher adam curnin
Nox Arcana delivers yet another riveting, haunting, heart pulsating, and gothic album. I only wish they would dedicate a 21 track album to the mental condition known as Insonmia and put Insonmia into musical interpretation! Also an album dedicated to the Fallen ArchAngel Lucifer! The Dark Father of us all and the Master Shadow of the Legion! The album is fantastic and a wonder for all who relish in gothic, eerie, haunting, and spine chilling melodies. So what are you waiting for? Buy this album and become a member of the Legion of Shadows yourself. We await you.
Legion of Shadows Raven 5 Keith Cooper
Are you a fan of Edger Allen Poe? His writing style that can put goose bumps up and down your spine. Nox Arcana is the musical verison of Poe. Putting the same goose bumps up and down your spince, this time in music. Turn out the lights, take up your favorite cool one, increase the volume and melt into the music.
Legion of Shadows Gothic moods 5 Amazon Customer
For dark, somber, powerful, gothic music, Nox Arcana is tough to beat. Put this disk to playing on some dark (and maybe) stormy night and sit yourself down to a good gothic ghost story. Enough to give you nightmares perhaps. Great mood music for the spooky and creepy. Best not be in the castle alone, however.

I've been a huge Nox Arcana fan for over 10 years, and I love each and every one of their CD's. And this one doesn't fail me in the slightest bit. I don't think that they could ever put out a bad one. The darker the better!
Legion of Shadows Great stuff. 5 kurtis primm
Hey, it's Nox Arcana, there's not much more that needs to be said. I have every single disc from them and have never been disappointed. This music is great for Halloween, or fantasy, or to just listen at any time.
Legion of Shadows Great mood music! 5 Soaring Gull
This one of my favorite Nox Arcana CDs (nothing can top Transylvania, but this comes close). I'm no music expert. All I can tell you is that it's great mood music when I'm writing.
Legion of Shadows Spooky Times are Here.... 5 SATAN
This is for all that like creepy & spooky music, one of many in my collection. Just fantastic for Halloween or Spooky party's any time of the year. A real mixed bundle of fine tunes lyrics and a few sound affects thrown in all at the right time so as not to spoil this fab album and many others like it from Nox Arcana. Five Gold Stars for best horror music going so try not to miss out.

Joseph Vargo, Maestro of the Shadows does not disappoint with his newest creation. Dark yet beautiful Legion of Shadows really sets the mood during the months when the sun sets sooner and the nights get crisper. Add the fact the he created this album as a love letter to his fans on Nox Arcana's 10 year anniversary...magnificent.

Legion of Shadows A masterful piece of atmospheric splendor. Kitley's Krypt
After 10 years of creating some amazing tracks of atmospheric music, the kind that is welcomed in any dungeon or crypt, Nox Arcana has released their latest CD which is a tribute to their fans, entitled Legion of Shadows. Listening to a Nox Arcana CD is like slipping into an old coat or shirt, something so familiar, so comfortable, and relaxing at the same time. It immediately brings the listener to a place where darkness envelopes you, but while some would be scared, for people like us, it seems to calm you, creating a peacefulness amongst the sounds coming from your speakers. The echoing notes from the piano, the low chanting in the background, the wailing moans and screams, all come together to create another masterful piece of atmospheric splendor.
We've been a fan/follower of Nox Arcana from the very beginning and have enjoyed each and every one of their releases. And I think it is so cool that they have decided to pay tribute to their fans with their latest CD. They have once again filled a CD with over an hour's worth of music filled with quiet and peaceful sounds and melodies, that is just perfect for a quiet evening reading some "quant and curious volume of some forgotten lore", or even just as a background filler while you're working on something. In other words, buy this CD, listen to it's music, and join the Legion of Shadows. For as they say, we are many.
