Review Summary: If you're Benton good riffs, I recommend giving this album a spin.

Spewing forth from the abyss in the Year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety two, Deicide's Legion catapulted Benton and his scantily clad storm troop into the upper echelons of the metal of death, garnering a following of true warriors of Satan. The second conjuration by the group, Legion encapsulates pure ungodliness at its most extreme, with total super fast drums and riffs full of the devil's thick, hot ejaculate.

As disappointing as it was watching the forces of light usurp the power of Deicide over the years, turning this true force of evil into resolute MTV faggotry, Legion is the calling card for the Unholy One's legions of true combatants - they wage a war of death where only metal can reign supreme. Once Upon the Cross and Serpents of Light were dying blows, rising up from the fires below to lash out at the material world, but the pinnacle of Legion would never again be reached.

In a world of many death metal records Deicide's Legion is on a whole different transcendental plane - this is not a Death Metal Record this is a document of Satan's work in the physical realm. Such exposure to the metaphysical elements has left Benton incapable of channelling the raw energy of our Lord, so it is bestowed on the fresh crop of younglings to take a hold of the dying darkness and renew its status amongst mere mortals. Is this a death metal classic? Deicide for yourselves.
