Biography

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.

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.

Lyrics

Mjolnir

Written By: Music - Evan Woolley Lyrics - Eric Boyd

Shall we learn to fight
With our blazing steel
Under Odin's might
Feast on our last meal

Chorus:
Mjolnir, protect us
We'll serve under your name
Cast away, petty fools
Our legend shall live on

Live, service our gods
Breath, it may be our last
Kill, or be slain yourself
Fight, for immortality

Chorus

Odin, fight for us
Lead us to glory
Our blades rise for you
Valhalla beckons us

Live, service our gods
Breath, it may be our last
Kill, or be slain yourself
Fight, for immortality

When shall we gain access
To the rainbow road
Fenrir, raise your ugly head
Mjolnir shall strike you down
Back down now, we have no fear
The battle clenched in our grasp

Drakenscale

Written By: Music - Jason Eick Lyrics - Eric Boyd

Questing for armor of the strongest grade
Our steel was forged by the great mandrake
Deep in the forest, we have trained for weeks
To obtain this shell that man can not break

We'll climb the mountainside
And gain vast amounts of pride

Alas! The God of the skies
Let's take him down, and equip our prize
We musn't wait, our army will rise
Our blessed plate, or our kingdom dies

Once work, the wearer becomes one with the wyrm
A pact formed deep inside both eternal souls
Gather our kindred to hold fast and firm
To wear Drakenscale is our only goal

To have, This plate
Of Drakenscale
The people, will know
It is us they hail

Aaaaaahhhhhh!
Drakenscale!
Kill the wyrm!
We will prevail!
Aaaaaahhhhhh!
Drakenscale!
Kill the wyrm!
We will prevail!

Alas! The God of the skies
Let's take him down, and equip our prize
We musn't wait, our army will rise
Our blessed plate, or our kingdom dies.

March On

Written By: Music - Jason Eick Lyrics - Eric Boyd

Gather our troops, We chant our war cry
Glorious battle awaits us
Raising our blades, high to the heavens
Give us the valor to conquer
We march in through the lines, that our foes have built
They don't stand a chance to oppose us
We won't give them the time, To retaliate further
The end is within our grasp

As we
Are led
Into war we march on
My liege
Lead us
We'll serve you until death

We'll form a glorious wall
And crush those who attempt to break us apart
With our hammers held high
And our steal by our sides
Victory! We shall march on

Our destination is reached, The enemy draws near
Now is the time to triumph
Galloping steed, plated with gold
Nothing will dare stop us now
Our numbers grow larger than those who face us
Their country now laden with blood
If the hordes run from battle, we'll chase them all down
And vanquish their very existence
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!

Killing, Slaying, All those who betray us
We'll never stop
Crushing, Crippling, all those who oppose us
Let the blood soak the earth.
