LEGION OF THE DAMNED - Legion Of The Damned: "Slaves Of The Shadow Realm"-Release-Show at the Turock in Essen, Germany.
Another trip to Germany, not to see actually any band, but to celebrate Stoney´s birthday party with your friends of Sodom and Kreator and also to give some support to your old friend from childhood, ´Twan Van Geel´, who´s currently the guitarist of one of the Netherlands most favourite Thrash Metal bands in Germany, LEGION OF THE DAMNED. It was a really fantastic weekend with a lot of drinks, food, especially thanks to my German-Greek dad ´Theo Papadopoulos´ and his family, who host us in the warmest and most lovely Greek tradition. About the gig, from all I saw (no single support acts, sorry)….They fucking nailed! I like how a moshpit and those crowd/surfers exactly started when these guys from The Netherlands kicked off. Amazing drumming and proud to hear the presented guitar-playing of my buddy ´FLESH MADE SIN´ Twanneke hehe!! All with a great club sound, this passionate band made you to bang your head till dead! I think these guys bring it all back how it was meant to be. Great concert with an even better party hehe..
