We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Fallen Legion’s lyric video fort their song “New Skin” featuring Lindsay Schoolcraft of Cradle of Filth (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s Downfall EP, which is available now.
The band commented on the song:
‘New Skin’ was exciting and brutally awesome to record. It’s an absolute blast working with Lindsay Schoolcraft from Cradle of Filth! The video is sweet and simple. Josh, our vocalist, spits words like a professional bench warmer spitting sunflowers seeds. What more do you need?
About the band:
John Milton wrote in Paradise Lost; “Let none admire/That Riches Grow in Hell; that soil may best deserve the precious bane…No light but rather only darkness visible/Served only to discover sights of woe.”
Oshawa, ON’s Fallen Legion have the potential to live up to Milton’s words and grow their own musical riches in the fertile soil of their own talent.
Since their formation in 2008, Fallen Legion have played with bands like Soilwork, Havok, Unearth, Battlecross and 36 Crazy Fists.
Fallen Legion have released two well-received demo EPs Screams From The Dungeon (2012), Infinite Archive (2015) and released an official EP, entitled Downfall, on May 18th, 2018.
Consisting of Nick Sauter on guitars, Jon Kal on bass, Josh Masterson on vocals and Dylan Waybrant on drums, Fallen Legion is inspired by an eclectic metal brigade of Gojira, Korn, Iron Maiden, Dethlok and Antonio Vivaldi for a sound best described as “energetic, unorthodox, progressive, spirited, and memorable.”
Their forthcoming EP is “the journey of a downfall. Going from stable to unbound and the choices that come with the calamity. The single embraces the human struggle and highlights the importance of hope. The EP is about dealing with stress- mortal blows, drugs, thoughts of suicide, the inner struggle, and the wrath of it all. The EP represents the outcome of painful experiences. Songs like ‘Escapegoat’ deal with not being able to handle the consequences of one’s actions and pushing them onto those weaker than yourself.”, and ‘Monster Reborn’-about letting the guilt build up inside, trapping one within their own mental anguish.”
