Limited edition of 150 copies, comes as 6-panels glossy laminated digipak.

Regard Extrême is a name that should be familiar to anyone into neofolk, neoclassical and martial industrial. Since its inception in 1990, Regard Extrême has collaborated with luminaries Les Joyaux De La Princesse and was featured in both the book and on the compilation album Looking For Europe. One can safely say Regard Extrême and its sole member Fabien Nicault have left their mark on orchestral post-industrial music.

If for some reason you aren't familiar with Regard Extrême, then Legacy is just the album for you: consisting of tracks originally featured on various releases from 1995 to 2022, this is a perfect single-disc introduction to the French project. And if you’re an old fan, then Legacy is also for you: the tracks have been re-composed and re-orchestrated with great attention to quality and loyalty to the original spirit. The end result: classic Regard Extrême tracks reimagined and refurbished for the year 2022. Featuring also two new, previously unreleased tracks, this is both a perfect starting point to explore Regard Extrême’s discography, and a welcome addition to an existing collection.

Legacy updates old classics with a powerful, clear but still powerful sound, full of heroic bombast, martial drama and evocative orchestrations. Pigeonholing Legacy is impossible: it is equal amounts neoclassical and martial industrial, epic and brooding, bellicose and dramatic. With its nuanced and detailed compositions drawing equally from classical music and the post-industrial underground, Legacy exemplifies clearly the skill and professionalism through which Regard Extrême have made themselves into a cult name.
