Biography

Geldrop, Netherlands (2004 – present)

Legion of the Damned is a Death/Thrash Metal band originally from Geldrop, Netherlands. They were formerly known as Occult, but decided to change their name to Legion of the Damned in 2004.

They unleashed their first thrashing metal storm on the 6th of January 2006. “Malevolent Rapture” was an uncompromising slab of killer death/thrash reminiscent of the masters of the eighties packed in a modern killer sound by Andy Classen and received many killer reviews in the press. The band showed to be able to combine furious thrash mayhem with midpaced neckbreaking rhythms, translocating the realm of the eighties into the new millenium.

Since “Malevolent Rapture” the band has been destroying the stage on the No Mercy Festivals together with Cannibal Corpse and Kataklysm, playing festivals such as Rockhard Festival, Summerbreeze and Wacken Open Air, as well as a minitour in September 2006 with veterans Destruction in the Netherlands. During the No Mercy Festivals, Harold Gielen joined the band on bass, increasing the ferocious power of this well-oiled warmachine on stage. Between the gigs the band was busy writing new songs for the next album.

In December/January of 2006/2007 They joined forces with Sodom and Finntroll playing shows in Holland, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland showing the audience what they can expect in the future.

The band has returned with “Sons Of The Jackal” in January 2007, featuring 10 songs that surpass the previous material. More dark, more violent and more diverse but still delivering the razorsharp riffing with utmost precisions, tight as hell drumming by Erik Fleuren and hateful vocals by Maurice Swinkels which sound even more menacing and vicious than before.

    Good band but nothing all that special. I find myself listening to them on the odd occassion but Id never listen to them regularly simply because there's plenty other bands doing the same thing as them but with more energy, power and more enjoyable, memorable songs/albums that make me want to go back to it. LOTD aren't a band that really "stick with you" or stand out of the bunch of thrash(there's barely any death metal in their music) bands. Just thought I'd throw my two cents in.

    слушая новый альбом я наконец-то начал понимать значение слова "годнота". Явный налет на звание "альбом месяца", по моему мнению=)
