Feel the Blade

Rated 4.14/5 (82.86%) (7 Votes)

This is not actually a new album, this is just a reissue of the 2003 Occult album Elegy For The Weak, under the new Legion Of The Damned moniker and with a revised track listing. It's not even a re-recording, just a re-pressing. This is kind of a disappointment, as I really wanted a new disc from this outfit; and it is kind of a ripoff too, especially if you have the original album already.

That said, this still kicks ass. Pure, razor-edged Death/Thrash is the order of the day here, and songs like "Slaughtering The Pigs" and "Warbeast" pretty much exemplify the genre. Death heaviness with Thrash riffing and a vocal style somewhere between the two makes for a high-energy brew for fans of similar acts like The Crown or Sodom's middle period. Thankfully, this band does not have a trace of punk in their sound, and this is pure steel smoking all the way. It's kind of weak to re-issue a five-year-old album and label it as new, but this kills, so more people should get a chance to hear it anyway.

Track Listing:
  1. Nuclear Torment
  2. Nocturnal Predator
  3. Slaughtering the Pigs
  4. Slut of Sodom
  5. Feel the Blade
  6. Expire
  7. Warbeast
  8. Disturbing the Dead
  9. Obsessed by the Grave
  10. Reaper's Call
