The release of Legion Of The Damned's new album is fast approaching. To help with the wait, the thrash/death metal band from The Netherlands has recently unleashed a preview of all the tracks to be featured on Ravenous Plague. It is not much, but at least it gives you an idea of what to expect come January 3rd in Europe (January 7th in North America) when Napalm Records releases it. Enjoy the riff bombardment.
Legion Of The Damned have finally shared the cover art that will grace their new opus Ravenous Plague. With the album set for release on December 20th, 2013 through Napalm Records, take a look below at the cover which was painted by Wes Bensecoter (Kreator). It is quite putrid.
After a successful South American tour, Legion Of The Damned is back on European soil, and anxious to promote and release their upcoming album Ravenous Plague. The band has finally revealed the song titles to their 6th album to be released in January of 2014 on Napalm Records. It was once again produced by Andy Classen at the Stage One Studio in Germany.
Dutch extreme metallers Legion Of The Damned have released a brand new song from their upcoming new album Ravenous Plague planned for late 2013, early 2014. The very friendly "Summon All Hate" is now available on the video below and will also appear on their 7" vinyl split single with Kreator coming on July 28th. Enjoy the thrash attack.
Legion Of The Damned have confirmed that their upcoming album will be titled Ravenous Plague. The band has been writing new songs for more than a year and will start recording the new beast in March with producer Andy Classen at the Stage One Studio in Germany. The release date for Ravenous Plague has yet to be confirmed by Napalm Records but the band lifted the veil a bit on the album's lyrical content.
The Napalm Records line-up just got a little deadlier, and here's the reason why: We are very proud to let you know that none other than the mighty Legion Of The Damned has joined our ranks! The Thrash Metal band has inked a worldwide record deal with Napalm Records and is more than ready to strike again!
According to a posting on the band's website, former bassist of Dutch thrashers Legion Of The Damned Twan Fleuren has committed suicide.
Twan joined the band Occult in 1998 where he directly joined them on a tour with Morbid Angel, Amon Amarth and Gorgoroth in 1999, after the recording of Occult's Rage to Revenge in 2001 and 2 great tours with Dark Funeral in 2001 and Exodus, Nuclear Assault and Agent Steel in 2003, Twan Fleuren was also at the beginning of the succes of Legion of the Damned and recorded with the band the legendary Elegy for the Weak with Andy Classen in 2003 that was later re-released under the name Feel the Blade in 2007, as well as the recording of Malevolent Rapture in 2004, which was released in 2006, the album that brought Legion of the Damned to a level where they are in right now.
Erik, Harold and Maurice got the shocking news that guitarist Richard Ebisch has to stop his current activity in the band Legion Of The damned.
Richard states: "I am very grateful for having achieved so much with Legion Of The Damned, but after having played in bands for so many years and having toured numerous times I decided to leave the band after careful deliberation. Because of health issues it was no longer possible for me to continue at this pace. I would like to say thank you to the fans and the Legion of the damned guys and wish them, and their new guitarist, all the best for the future."
We did not really expect this says Maurice Swinkels, who is doing the band with Richard for more than 16 years, he stated: "We recently succesful ended Sweden Rock Cruise and have alot of other great festivals planned ahead such as Graspop, Nummirock in Finland, Metalcamp, Bang your head and With Full force, we didn't really notice anything or felt like this is going to end somewhere for Richard. During Kettersach Festival last weekend Richard announced that he would still do Paaspop this upcoming weekend, but call it an end after that, it will be a great lost for us, but we accept his decision of course."
