Legion Of The Damned Discusses Upcoming Album "Ravenous Plague"

Legion of the Damned, which recently signed to Napalm Records, will record next full-length album "Ravenous Plague" with producer Andy Classen at the Stage One Studio.

Andy Classen previously produced Legion of the Damned's albums "Malevolent Rapture," "Sons of the Jackal," "Feel the Blade," and "Cult of the Dead." Only the last recorded album "Descent into Chaos" was produced by Peter Tägtgren in Sweden at the Abyss studio. Vocalist Maurice Swinkels explains:

"Peter was a super experience to us and it was a hell of a great time, for me it was a personal thing, I was curious to hear the result with a different producer other than Andy Classen, but the beating heart of Legion of the damned lies in Bühne, the home town of Stage One Studio in Germany."

The band has been composing new songs for more than a year now and will enter the studio in March, 2013. "Many of the successful albums of Legion of the damned were produced by Andy Classen and therefore we build such a strong team with him," drummer Erik Fleuren continues. "He can truly push us to our limits, and that's what we need."

The band also believes that since this is the first Legion of the Damned album for guitarist Twan van Geel, its a good decision to choose a familiar environment. Former guitarist Richard Ebisch left the band more than a year ago, after serving since 1994, although he was the mastermind behind all the typical Legion of the damned riffs, Maurice says fans can still expect a true Legion of the damned album.

He comments, "Richard was the only guitarist, but writing new material in Legion of the damned was never a one man job or decision, everyone is involved, therefor even with Twan van Geel on the heavy strings fans can expect a typical Legion of the damned album since we definitely stay true to our style, although it will have its own special twist ofcourse, since Twan has its own style of playing."

Maurice adds: "We can't wait to record the new album 'Ravenous Plague.' It will definitely feel as if we are 'coming home.'"

"I'm really glad to get the legions back to stage one studio - I always felt like a bandmember and I love the band and their music. so now we`re looking forward to do another killer-Legion of the damned album!" Andy Classen comments.

Once again Tony "Skullcrusher" Manero is responsible for the lyrical content of the new album and deals with various aspects of the apocalypse and what happens when society falls apart.
