Legion Of The Damned/Descent Into Chaos/Massacre Records/2011 CD Review


Legion Of The Damned are a band from The Netherlands that plays a mixture of death, thrash and black metal and this is a review of thei 2011 album "Descent Into Chaos" which was released by Massacre Records.

Drums alternate between midpaced and fast bass playing with alot of brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone which seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.

Rhythm guitars are a mixture o midpaced to fast riffing which combines thrash, death and black metal together with alot of cathiness and a mall amount of soft playing being used on one of the intros to the songs, while the lead guiars are very distorted sounding guitar solos which are influenced by mid 80 to early 90's extreme metal.

Vocals are a mixture of early 80's black tharash style of vocals mixed with some deep growls and gang style yelling chorus style of vocals, while the lyrics cover rage, death, war and nucluear doom, as for the production it sounds very powerful and heavy.

In my opinion Legion Of The Damned are a very good band that brings the classic death/thrash/black sound to modern days and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACS INCLUDE "A Night At the Sabbath" "War Is My Blood" "Lord Of The Flies" and "THE HAND Of Darkness". RECEMMONDED BUY.
