The relentless Dutch thrashers, Legion of the Damned, invaded to Finland in the beginning of February 2008, doing a 4-show mini-tour under the "Suomi Invasion 2008" – and showing no mercy towards their crazy and drunken Finnish fans when the band hit the stages in 4 different cities.
Legion of the Damned´s last show out of these 4 shows, was booked to a relatively small, but very cozy-looking metal bar named Nightlife Rock in Helsinki where the band had the opportunity to play with 3 Finnish thrash troops: Hateform, Axegressor and The Scourger (whom all – by the way – did a great job, opening up for L.o.t.D.).
Maurice Swinkels, who rips his lungs out in Legion of the Damned, was in a cheerful and talkative mood, and was kind enough to reveal the band´s both current – as well as future plans for Metal-Rules.com, plus was kinda excited to tell a couple of interesting things about his past bands from Bestial Summoning to Occult, as well.
