Hammerfall - Legion Lyrics

The war still remains
No Kingdom on earth
There's only pure evil, indifference to birth

In the tombs of the dead
One man breeds alone
The unearthly warfare shadows the throne

Three temptations written down
The Lust of flesh, lust of the eyes
Finally the pride of life

The Demon Twelve, the hell hounds
My name is Legion, for we are many spirits inside of one
To build a land of chaos, brought forth from the Abyss
My name is Legion, and we bring destruction and death

Possessing his soul
The curse of the damned
A tormented victim, to the bottom he's slammed

One man stands alone
Tripped, under a spell
Encounter your demons, send them to Hell

No temptations left to fend
Sanctified, Anti Christ
Casting shadows towards the cross

The Demon Twelve, the hell hounds
My name is Legion, for we are many spirits inside of one
To build a land of chaos, brought forth from the Abyss
My name is Legion, and we bring destruction and death

[Solo: Pontus, Oscar, Pontus, Oscar, Pontus, Oscar, Pontus, Oscar, Pontus, Oscar]

The Demon Twelve, the hell hounds
My name is Legion, for we are many spirits inside of one
To build a land of chaos, brought forth from the Abyss
My name is Legion, and we bring destruction and death

  2. Simon Liljestrand

    Video from 2009. The sound quality is more telling of that than the date stamp :P

  3. Mark Luckenbaugh

    The perfect Halloween song

  4. Daniel Krejcar

    When I heard this life for the first time, I couldn't understand much. I thought it was about killing gods and stuff, and in the chorus, there is My name is Nietzsche, which would make sense. Sounds even more epic this way though.

  5. Rachel Gescat

    Oh yes ah ha ha power

  6. Daniel Rojo

    This song is just a cliffhanger... The good guys win at the end 👍

  7. Trenchcoat Samurai

    You know that Legion was excorcized by Jesus... Right?

    So much for "In the eternal battle between Supreme Benevolence versus Absolute *EVIL* the Beast *ALWAYS* triumphs." am I right?

  8. Q8Bart

    World of Warcraft: Legion Theme song :)


    Exactly i used to listen to this when i did Legion PVP.

  9. Aetheria Evëlyn

    Song starts at 01:01

  10. Daniel Pfaff

    Jesus Christ what the awesome fuck did I walk into?!

  11. AngeloAlberto urso

    Amo .metal

  12. Swedish Seacon

    I'm just imagining a warlord Orc talking in the intro because it's the first thing that comes to my mind

  13. Guinea pig In a tree

    The anti-christ is coming... If you want the blessing of the mad frog, you need to do: 50 push-ups, 50 sit-ups, 50 squats and go knock on your neighbours door and say: "Hey, how are you doing?"

  14. Chris Lowe

    Awesome song...Great Band....2018 and on-wards....

  15. Horace Chit

    Why are you not so ferocious muscle stupid as we are? Try to not be so retarded Russian old school idiot thumb up ass means so strong in Russian bear fucked me up the ass (and whatnot) with intentional diversion of factual jerk off.

  16. Paul C Lalchungnunga

    I love metal music

  20. Cheese4G

    This song sounds so happy and triumphant... then I actually paid attention to the lyrics.

  21. Edi Herrera

    Que buena muuuuuuusica!!!

  22. Manek Iridius

    I think I cut myself on that intro.

  23. BennyBucki

  26. Kai-Uwe Mischo

    hau der brut mal aufs maul

  27. Giver and Receiver

    The intro reminds me of Guts from Berserk, slaying Demons.

  28. Raziel redeemer and destroyer , peon and messiah

    best hammerfall song

  29. Raziel redeemer and destroyer , peon and messiah

    this song is epic and the intro is evil great song

  30. Mihajlo Mitrović

    Someone thinks the beginning might have sounded like a super mad pig? Or is it just me?


    That's fitting. This song is a reference to a biblical story where Jesus exorcizes a man possessed by many demons who call themselves Legion. They get banished into a horde of pigs which then drown in a sea.

  31. Christian Court

    The Burning Legion will fall by Azeroths heroes

  32. Eternal Nightmare

    One of the most epic intros ever 1:01 - 1:23

    Krzysztof Kozłowski

    Eternal Nightmare yup which makes it even more disappointing when you find out there's no gold on the end of that rainbow

  38. Zero is alive

    i love metal

  39. Rajko Stankovic



  40. Kangoo

    I love how everyone is, like, 100% warcraft on this song because come on, what's more metal than slicing through demons with a freaking war-axe wielding undead


    Wanna know something more metal, you say? Try three metre high marines wearing two ton heavy armour, shrugging off small arms fire, slicing demons up with a chainsaw sword, and shooting heretics with bullets the size of tank shells!
    Oh, and planet obliterating lasers!

  41. CursesTremble

    haha just came here cuz new wow came out and it reminded me of this song and first comment is about wow

  42. Pete Lisewski

    I will avenge King Wrynn!

  46. Pete Skepsis

    Aw fuck the beginning of the song is so kick ass 1:00 - 1:22 and then it just turns into the same old HammerFall sound. It's ok, but I was ready to be blown away.


    My feelings exactly.
    The song "Patient Zero" though, really caught me by surprise.

  47. Nira Katsumi

    I know it might be wrong way to do it, but I downloaded it, got rid of first minute and now it's great :D

  48. zeb jensen

    forget just the horde or the alliance FOR AZOROTH!

  49. Ty Leslie


  50. Babstein

    I will sing this song on the WoW Legion Launch Day all day long, I promised my boyfriend! He (and his ears) are prepared! :D


    This is a biblical song.......But i might do it too.


    your boyfriends a lucky guy

    Genesis Gaming

    Not lucky if anyone on earth plays WoW ... But ok :P

  51. Gregory Bogosian

    Why is this song in a major key?

    Gregory Bogosian

    @***** Why does all power metal have to be in a major key?

    Asier Azkolain

    Because otherwise it wouldn't be this song? -_-

    Gregory Bogosian

    @Asier Azkolain The lyrics are about a demon bringing destruction and death. You would think that a minor key would better suit the lyrical content.

  53. Super Kawaii Kittens

    This has to be somewhat inspired by World of Warcraft, right?


    Haaaaa, cause the Burning Legion comes back

    Andreas Chaniotakis

    Wow and Hammerfall have a link strong as iron.


    And Warcraft is inspired by Warhammer... it's all a crazy loop of people inspired from other people

    Andreas Chaniotakis

    yes, and if you keep going back it leads to our most ancient myths and legends. so rad


    Andreas Chaniotakis and if you go back even further it leads to tribal stories and people's pure original ideas...

    Jesus Frees a Man From Evil Spirits

    5 Jesus and his followers went across the lake to the area where the Gerasene people[a] lived. 2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man came to him from the caves where the dead are buried. This man had an evil spirit living inside him. 3 He lived in the burial caves. No one could keep him tied up, even with chains. 4 Many times people had put chains on his hands and feet, but he broke the chains. No one was strong enough to control him. 5 Day and night he stayed around the burial caves and on the hills. He would scream and cut himself with rocks.

    6 While Jesus was still far away, the man saw him. He ran to Jesus and bowed down before him. 7-8 As Jesus was saying, “You evil spirit, come out of this man,” the man shouted loudly, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you in God’s name not to punish me!”

    9 Then Jesus asked the man, “What is your name?”

    The man answered, “My name is Legion,[b] because there are many spirits inside me.” 10 The spirits inside the man begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of that area.

    11 A large herd of pigs was eating on a hill near there. 12 The evil spirits begged Jesus, “Send us to the pigs. Let us go into them.” 13 So Jesus allowed them to do this. The evil spirits left the man and went into the pigs. Then the herd of pigs ran down the hill and into the lake. They were all drowned. There were about 2000 pigs in that herd.

     14 The men who had the work of caring for the pigs ran away. They ran to the town and to the farms and told everyone what happened. The people went out to see. 15 They came to Jesus, and they saw the man who had the many evil spirits. He was sitting down and was wearing clothes. He was in his right mind again. When they saw this, they were afraid. 16 Those who had seen what Jesus did told the others what happened to the man who had the demons living in him. And they also told about the pigs. 17 Then the people began to beg Jesus to leave their area.

    18 Jesus was preparing to leave in the boat. The man who was now free from the demons begged to go with him. 19 But Jesus did not allow the man to go. He said, “Go home to your family and friends. Tell them about all that the Lord did for you. Tell them how the Lord was good to you.”

    20 So the man left and told the people in the Ten Towns about the great things Jesus did for him. Everyone was amazed.

    Daniel Thureskog

    +Crimson Vulpes The same thing can be said about W.A.S.P.'s Harder Faster on the iPhone's version of iTunes or at least it was like that. It's now also like that on Amazon with only the first half of the intro.

    @Antonio Villacís Osorio La verdad no jode. No tiene nada de extraño que se toquen temas o personajes bíblicos en una canción de dicho genero.

  69. Fantastic Voyage

    This song is actually about Piccolo, from Dragon Ball Z.

    astreiner boi

    it's about a person in the bible possesed by thousands of demons. when jesus asks him who he is he answers: my name is legion. for we are many or something like that. than jesus drives away the demons into some pigs which drown themselfs after that. i just found out the story a few days ago because i read on songmeanings

    @ikillstupidcomments Your username is the definition of awesome. Hail to the savior of Youtube \(O.O)/

    Jacob Caffee

    Welcome to Power Metal! If you want a really "dorky" and ridiculous band then go listen to Gloryhammer. They have a song called "Unicorn Invasion of Dundee" that is absolutely absurd (in a good way). 

    Ya Boi Rhombus

    Jacob Caffee Lol, super old comment, but yeah. Gloryhammer is fun.

  78. The Crimson Fucker

    One of my favorite Hammerfall songs!

  79. dattebenforcer

    It's good except for the intro, it detracts from the song.

    Jacob Caffee

    The intro is the best part... ;-;

    They bring destruction and death, sigh, ofcourse. Why's there never a metal song about a being that brings cookies&hugs??


    To get back to the original topic here, there is indeed at least one metal song about cookies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uriJOsWy_zU.

    Damjan Medvešček


    wanker wacker

    Try cannibal corpse


    by the way, the original quote "my name is legion, for we are many" is from the Bible. How about that?
    Check out Mark 5:9 (or the whole Mark 5 story, it is quite short) and then check the lyrics of this again. Can this be a metal song about a biblical story? I don't believe Hammerfall is advocating the Legion, especially in this part, they describe the man tormented by the demons.

    Possessing his soul
    The curse of the damned
    A tormented victim, to the bottom he's slammed
    One man stands alone
    Trapped, under a spell
    Encounter your demons, send them to Hell

    note: I am not a christian, I just googled the quote, because it sounded like a quote :) and this is what I found.

    I got tired of all this religious shit. That's why I now subscribe to the religion of METAL \m/

    The Crimson Fucker

    I thought you got tired of religion.

  92. 1GMorfeus

    As far as legion is concerned. Since Matthew and the others were wondering here is what happened. Legion was exorcised by Christ and sent into 100 pigs. Those pigs suicided by falling to their doom in a waterfall. True story. Thus Legion is in Hell.


    before anyone say that he would enter another animal. The pigs suicided become they couldnt handle legion cause he is many thus the chances that another flock of anything was there to be possesed is unrealistic.

    ...... as is religion tbh
