Who Will Survive, and What Will Be Left of Them? is the second full-length release by Murder by Death. It was released on Eyeball Records in 2003. Its title is a reference to the tagline of the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
It is a concept album based around the Devil and a small Mexican town which he wages war against.
On the band's website, Adam Turla, guitarist and lead singer of the band, explained the meanings of all the songs on the album. The following is his introduction to the explanations:
I guess the first thing I should say is that this album is not trying to be artsy, or profound or anything more than the story it is. It's meant to entertain, bring the feeling of sitting around telling ghost stories or something. Also, I'm a religious studies major, so I tied in a lot of weird religious stuff. This is just a story, there's no religious affiliation on our parts. So there's my disclaimer.
