Comments:  Legion is the hardest Deicide album to play.  Of course, as guitarists, we always love challenges, but this is one song I'd rather not try to play live.  Anyway, I think I did a fine job on the tab, and if you feel inclined to do so, you are welcome to e-mail me, tab related or not.  Whatever.  Enjoy.
