FALLEN LEGION Premiere “Way Out” Drum Playthrough via Technical Music Review
New EP “Downfall” Out Now!
Canadian whiplash tyrants FALLEN LEGION have teamed up with Technical Music Review to showcase drummer Dylan Waybrant’s new playthrough for the band’s track “Way Out” off their latest EP “Downfall” released this past May.
“Way Out is easier than it looks, but harder than it sounds. The opening drum beat was fun to put together and I don’t normally have to notate my music to understand it.”

FALLEN LEGION‘s latest EP “Downfall” (which peaked #7 on the Top 20 July 2018 Canadian College Radio Loud Charts) features six energetic, unorthodox, progressive, spirited and memorable tracks plus guest vocals and keyboard from Cradle of Filth‘s Lindsay Schoolcraft on “New Skin”. The EP follows FALLEN LEGION‘s two well-received demo EPs “Screams From The Dungeon” (2012) and “Infinite Archive” (2015). Consisting of Nick Sauter on guitars, Jon Kal on bass, Josh Masterson on vocals and Dylan Waybrant on drums, the band presents an eclectic metal brigade of influences from Gojira, Korn, Iron Maiden, Dethlok and Antonio Vivaldi.
The band comments:
“This 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.”

#7 FALLEN LEGION on Top 20 July 2018 Canadian College Radio Loud Charts (Earshot)
“Downfall is an impressive effort…Their musicianship is first class…” – Hellbound
“The band brings and fuses influences from Gojira, Korn, Iron Maiden, and Dethlok with its deeper lyricism and heavier tunes. The EP has something for all metal fans. ” – Canadian Beats
“If you are interested in bands such as Veil of Maya, Between The Buried And Me, Protest The Hero then you really ought to seek these guys out. If they can produce an EP of this quality when they are unsigned just what are they going to be doing then they have a label behind them?” – Frame Music Mag
“Like a cocktail of the idiosyncrasies of metal’s greatest eccentrics, Fallen Legion’s debut EP caters firmly to fans of the weirder shades of the genre. As easily comparable at one moment to System Of A Down as it is to Between The Buried And Me at another, ‘Downfall’ blends its frenetic savagery with an underlying wackiness to satisfying effect…With multiple listens bearing increasing rewards, Fallen Legion is a name to remember for anyone whose musical tastes teeter on the edge of sanity.” – Uber Rock
