December 2nd

Though wie have filmed nearly every recording session for “Penrose", it is most unlikely that we will see a complete video of “As Dominos Fall”.

Therefore we share just this excerpt which hopefully gives you two minutes of fun.

The track features Marco Minnemann, Pete Trewavas, Ricky Garcia & Frank Us.


November 13th

First class drumming by Todd Sucherman, an awesome solo from Steven Rothery, a splendid bass playing from Lars and marvellous backing vocals by Finally George.


November 12th


How time flies...

And it's time to say thank you to everyone who has supportet us. 

Here is the link to our latest video, featuring the amazing Marco Minnemann:

It's done... Penrose has just been released. Thanks to all the wonderful friends who made this album so special.

Have fun watching it!

October 8th





We're counting down… two weeks to go…

To make the time not too long, today we release the official teaser video for "The Penrose Triangle”.

September 24th



It feels a little odd, but the matter of fact is, that the last track from the new album has been returned from the mastering studio. Composition, recording, arranging, mixing and mastering... A year and a half of work is finished. At least as far as the music is concerned. Now the “real” fun stuff begins... all the paperwork, registering tracks, preparing DDP for the pressing plant, finalising print documents... the list goes on.
If nothing goes wrong in the CD production later on, the release date at the end of October is safe.
We have made a lot of film material while we worked on the  album (as visible in the collage) which will end up in several music videos.
All pilots looking forward to this release and can’t wait for your reaction.

August 29th

Video excerpt

January 30th 2021


We are very happy to announce the first 50 seconds of audio, recorded for the third album.
Of course the album is far from being finished, but we think this little excerpt sounds already promising.
Drum recording session

Following our graphic announcement that we can expect something new from the Pilots in summer 2021, we would like to give you a bit more info.

Not only the process of writing new material has taken place, we have had already several recording sessions. The results so far are more than promising. Summer sounds a bit vague for a release date, but with several months in front of us with many more recordings, mixing and mastering a more definite schedule is impossible.

Nevertheless, we're going full steam ahead and we thought we share the good news. Attached here is a little screen shot from an actual session and if you spot the tracks on the left, you can already discover who again is on board

December 23rd


Dear Pilots friends,
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Please take care of yourselves and stay healthy in the new year.
You will hear from us again in January and we think we will have good news. 
Until then,
Legacy Pilots

October 8th

Dear friends,

Today we release our latest and at the same time the last video from our AVIATION album.

"Innocent" is a mid-tempo piece with many calm sections. It's nevertheless worth watching, especially if you look how elegant Todd's play in this is. The fills he's playing are just brilliant. Which is also true for Lars' bass performance. Simply wonderful - even though he is not in the picture.

Thanks for all the support we've got!


INNOCENT - The video

September 19th


Hey folks,

Many thanks to everyone who has supported us over the last couple of weeks?

We’re grateful for all the very good reviews AVAITION has got and of course we are especially grateful to the people who bought our album. 

In this regard -  finally all problems are solved with the online shop in the US: delivery and shipping now works as expected.

Hi everyone,
I can’t believe it, but yesterday the last track has been delivered to the mastering studio.
After 1 1/2 years of composing, recording, producing and mixing we are close to the finish line.
To celebrate this day I would like to share another video. While the track we shared last time was clearly pop oriented, this song is a rocker. In this excerpt, Marco shows an explosive performance, full of energy.
The full video will be released later, as it is in need of a final touch.
The whole team behind the new Legacy Pilots release, is damn excited :-)

Hey folks, production diary No.6 .
IWe would like to share another snippet from our recordings.
This is a pop song. Shocking, we know.
But beside the eight and ten minute pieces, there was room for some "lighter" music ?

Videp can be found here:



May 1st


When it comes to the mix of a song or album, it does not matter, how many monitor systems you have in your studio. Your mix will sound everywhere different.
Often the moment of truth is, when you listen to the mix in your car the first time.
This time it was not different. The bass drum kicked me out of my socks.
Far to massive.
Since I can’t get my car into my little studio, I had the idea to bring the studio into my car. Nowadays with a DAW’s on a laptop it is possible to do a final touch on the mix while your car becomes the control room.
Here is a little video that shows that it is possible, after I have copied the project to a laptop, to listen and correct the mix, while you’re sitting in the car.
The first section is a track that features, beside others, Marco Minnemann and Pete Trewavas, and the second one features Todd Suchermann on the drums. For both snippets I’ve blended over from the video sound to the current state of the Mix.
Here is a little video how it went -You might like it ;-)

Production Diary Part 3 is here

Hi everybody, here is the link to the latest production diary video:


It is less about playing or production techniques but rather giving audible examples.

Again, the amazing Marco Minnemann has come up with a mind-blowing performance.

And he is not alone -  We are proud to announce, that another legend has joined the Pilots. The latest member offers a spectacular bass-performance.
And there is also a scientific description  about, "what is a progressive song?" ;-) In case you didn't know...
