      The band's best work so far

      The first time I think I heard about Legion of the Damned they were taking part in what was once the Red Alert festival in Ukraine, despite being Dutch they are signed up to Massacre Records, a Polish label who over the last few years have astutely signed some of the best death, thrash and black metal acts throughout Europe and really put themselves on the map as a label.

      Cult of the Dead is what I believe is the band's best work to date, they really seem to have tightened their act, it's slightly heavier than before but lyrically still in touch with the convincing occult ramblings of the first album rather than the horror themed predecessor "Feel the Blade" that was released the same year. There's no comparison in drumming between this and the first album, Fleuren's drum rolls are excellent here and bring a lot of variation to the overall sound compared his militant and somewhat boring sound on the first. Vocally nothing has really changed - Swinkels is for me one of the best in the business and the only difference here is that he probably has more conviction in his voice than ever before. Black Templar and the title track are my favourites from this album but it's a very strong album and one of if not the best in this genre released last year.

      Two unique things about this album include a Legion of the Dead stamped block of fake cheese that comes with the digipak version and the fact that many fans are confused over song names due to the album being leaked and incorrectly named before the band's official release.
