Death Metal




Legion of the Damned was originally founded as Occult in 1992 but after fighting a rearguard action for over a decade, they decided to start over as Legion of the Damned. The musical ingredients hardly changed but under the new moniker their career finally took off thanks to such genre classics as ‘Malevolent Rapture’ (2006) and ‘Sons of the Jackal’ (2007). The band’s most recent full-length, 2014’s ‘Ravenous Plague’ is reminiscent of the band’s beginnings and consolidated their status. Legion of the Damned plays the kind of boot-to-throat thrash that takes off like a rabid dog on speed and never lets up. Their recipe of Teutonic riffs, raw vocals and vicious drums has been labelled Euro-thrash with a death metal twist. The new ‘Slaves of the Shadow Realm’ CD is scheduled for an early 2019 release. A mega mosh pit, sore neck muscles and an hour of uncompromising thrash/death? Count us in! (#GMM19)
