Legion Of The Damned - Former Bassist Commits Suicide

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.

Twan Fleuren was also part of the first Legion of the Damned tour that took place in 2006 with no one less than Kataklysm and Cannibal Corpse, however, Twan left the band half way the tour because his, at that time, baby born son was hospitalized, the band then agreed that it would be better for Twan to leave the band because doing the band and having its family was to complicated at that point, he was then replaced by bassplayer Harold Gielen in 2006.

About Twan's loss singer Maurice states: "Another very sad day in the Legion camp, Twan has been a great friend and we lost contact for several years because he was in some difficult times, only a few weeks back we were all back in contact again and it felt like these great old times were about to return, even Erik and me joined him on a terrace for a beer or 2 a few weeks ago, he even wanted to join us to With Full Force in July, where I was really looking forward to, he even showed alot of intrest in our new guitarplayer and the departure of Richard Ebisch. The bad news that came in today struck as a bomb not for me only personally but also for the band Legion of the Damned.

Of course we wish his family and kids all the strength they need in this process. We will miss you brother and of course all of the upcoming Legion of the Damned shows will be dedicated in his name!"

Drummer Erik announced following: "Yet another sad day in the history of Legion of the Damned. We knew that Twan had to face some extreme difficult times, but we certainly did not expect this, he was about to join us at some upcoming festivals and we were really looking forward to that. Maurice and I are happy that we still had a nice chat and drink with him at a terrace not so long ago after a really long time of not seeing each other, rest in peace my friend and my sincere condolences to his family"

Legion Of The Damned - Guitarist Quits The Band

Official press release

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."

With the question in mind how Legion of the damned will continue. Maurice states: "Even though this came out of blue for us, we have no intention on cancel any of the planned festivals, who is going to replace Richard Ebisch is still a question unanswered, but hopefully we will have this answered as soon as possible as well , one thing is for sure, after Paaspop finnish metalfest Nummirock is next in line and we will be there stronger than ever!"

That it struck everybody in the band personally is no surprise, as Harold states: "It's really sad that Richard decided to leave the band, but it's his decision to end his carrier as a musician and we have to accept it as it is. I am really happy to be part of the Legion family, and shared the stage with Richard for 5 years. I have to thank him as well for all the fun and musical influences we shared. Richard is a great guitar player with an own style, and I wish him all the best with his future plans."

Also Erik who is doing the band with Richard for more than 16 years stated: "Bandmembers leaving the band was always something that happened in other bands, not with Legion of the damned, we are like brothers, shared joy and happiness as well as dissapointment and sadness together, it was always the four of us, but thats also part of being in a band that it might end somewhere or that someone leaves at a certain point, we have to accept it. We will miss Richard and I wish him all the best in the future."
