Underrated and mostly unacknowledged, Discovery of a Lifelong Error left a big impression on California's underground scene. "Giants Orbiting", shown above, is widely regarded as their best work. Members of this band, Corey (vocals) and Ben (guitar), have since gone on to join the post-hardcore act, A Lot Like Birds.

The "Creatures" EP features Marcos of Galaga: The Movie on guitar.

Galleons - Swans / Legacies - Demo

Artist: Galleons / Legacies
Origin: Nottingham, UK
Genre: Techgrind / Mathcore
Album: Swans / demo
Release date: 2009-2011
01. As the Earth Unfolds
02. Steve McQueen Can Come
03. The Compass Points North
04. How Deep Is the Sea
05.  You Won't Know It's Depths Until You've Drowned

Format: Various kbps, mp3
Download: Mediafire
Website: Facebook

Another band from the Mecha Organa tech metal compilations, Galleons story is short and sweet. After gaining notoriety in the UK underground grind scene, their guitarist, Tom, left the band putting Tom, the vocalist, in charge of guitar duties, having been relieved by new vocalist, Tom. I'm not even joking. That's when they changed their name to Legacies and subsequently disbanded. Such is the world of techgrind; bands aren't even allowed a chance to burn themselves out, but the result is something special and part of the genres charm.

"How Deep is the Sea" appears on Mecha Organa Volume 5, and I've included it along with "Swans" and the only song released by Legacies.

I found this album on their Myspace in a blog from about 3 years ago, and I have never seen it elsewhere. I have no idea why it isn't better known, but I felt it was time for it to see the light of day again. Destroy All Operating Systems was supposed to release another album, and we're still waiting.

However, they did release 3 other songs after "Change", which I've included as a bonus. Aren't you lucky?
