Legion of the Dying are amongst a breed of musicians that will never burn out or fade away. They describe themselves as a “metal band that turns your ear on its side with its unique combination of power metal strength and brutal death vocals.” Somewhat new to the local scene, they are showing all of the determination a young band may endure when they absolutely are passionate about what they are doing.

They describe themselves with playful sarcasm, but sing tales of treacherous battles. They speak of war using a grueling assault of thick vocals and titillating guitar work. They share stories of triumph in “March On” where they will “Convert the survivors to join for our cause, Our army has doubled today, We survey the countless dead, As we let loose, the hounds, of war!”

Survival encompasses “Drakenscale”…a noble delight of defending ones own performed in a passionate blaze of resuscitating riffs, radiating solos and restrained vocals. And who could leave out “Mjolnir”…a mass of metal brutality at its finest. Guided by demonic vocals, the riffs produced by these guitarists are absolutely amazing. Drums are heart-pounding echoes in your chest…the ones you can still feel long after you’ve left a show.

Legion of the Dying may be one of those bands where you’ll have to wear extra padding at a show because I have a feeling there’s a lot of bodies getting tossed around when these guys hit the stage. Gearing up for new and exciting things in the very near future, be sure to visit their website for show dates, songs and upcoming adventures. They are also on www.myspace.com/legionofthedying posting blogs, upcoming shows and songs for your listening pleasure. Metal on!!

Bio

Legion of the Dying is a metal band that turns your ear on its side with its unique combination of power metal strength and brutal death vocals. This mixture of styles comes from the uniting of the neo-classical and progressive metal influenced Jason Eick and Matt Meehan and the Thrash/Death Metal influenced Evan Woolley and Eric Boyd, former members of the Pennsylvania based band Treachery. Once the line up was set they were quick to start playing shows, gaining support at regional venues such as the Middle East Downstairs and Ralph's Rock Diner. With their debut EP already out, its sonic assault crafted with the help of Engineer Richard Mendelson. Legion of the Dying are on their way up.

Influences include: Amon Amarth, Iron Maiden, Vital Remains, Nocturnal Rites, Blind Guardian, Bal-Sagoth, Death, Iced Earth, Kataklysm, Decapitated, Atheist, Lost Horizon, 3 Inches of Blood
