Legion Of The Damned have never played in Sweden, a fact that will be changed on April 7-8 when the band boards the Sweden Rock Cruise!
The roots of these Dutch thrashers can be found in Occult, which started out as a death/black metal band but flirted heavily with thrash metal at the end of their career. Occult gained cult status in the extreme metal underground but real success evaded them, so after a decade of misfortunes, line-up changes and record company disagreements, singer and band leader Maurice Swinkels decided it was time for a fresh start.
After changing the band name and signing a new record contract, the quartet finally got the breakthrough they had been fighting for for so long. Another three albums later, Legion Of The Damned have established themselves as one of the leading extreme thrash metal acts on the European metal scene.
Sweden Rock Cruise Line-up so far:

Three more bands are to be announced!
