One of the Netherlands' best metal bands of the last decade, Legion of the Damned, has announced that they will begin the recording process for their sixth full-length studio record, titled "Ravenous Plague." Producing the record will be a familiar face in Andy Classen who has produced every album in the band's discography (aside from their most recent release "Descent into Chaos). Drummer Maurice had the following to say about working again with Andy Classen, "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. He can truly push us to our limits, and that's what we need"
"Ravenous Plague" will be the first album without guitarist Richard Ebsich, the man who is widely considered to be the riff-master for Legion of the Damned. Frontman Maurice elaborates on the addition of a new guitarist and the band's songwriting process, "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, therefore 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 of course, since Twan has its own style of playing.We can't wait to record the new album "Ravenous Plague. It will definitely feel as if we are 'coming home'".
The release date for "Ravenous Plague" is currently unknown, but it's sure to be a thrashing onslaught like fans of Legion of the Damned have come to know and love. Be sure to stay updated with the band by following them on their Facebook page.
