It was a major experience and big challengefor the band, but the resonance was amazing. Now, after this succesful South American tour, LEGION OF THE DAMNED are back on european ground, and excited to promote and release their upcoming album “Ravenous Plague“. The band would finally like to reveal the songtitles of their already 6th silvered destroyer, to be released in january 2014, once again produced by no one less than Andy Classen at the Stage One Studio in Germany:
