Death and thrash metal go together like peanut butter and jelly. Few bands capture the essence of a riff-driven thrash sound with sheer death-like anger so well like Dutch masters Legion of the Damned, who managed to successfully make a name for themselves since they were playing beautiful black/thrash as Occult.

Stiff Records will go down in history as the most important UK independent label ever. The Stiff staff have released some of the most legendary punk and new wave records of all time, covering every cool musical revolution first and with style. This is a hundred track slice of punk and new wave history, complete with 68 page book. "If it ain’t Stiff it ain’t worth a f*ck!"
Dutch thrash/death/black metal outfit LEGION OF THE DAMNED has returned after a five-year hiatus. On January 4, 2019, the quartet will release "Slaves Of The Shadow Realm" via Napalm Records. The follow-up to 2014's "Ravenous Plague" was produced by Andy Classen and merges the unadulterated fury of the early LEGION OF THE DAMNED years with the sophistication of a veteran band.
With thirty years of active, nefarious service under their bulletbelts, NECROPHOBIC are undisputed legends of the death and black metal underground. “Dawn of the Damned” is undoubtedly the most imaginative and creative album of the band’s career to date. Once again recorded in collaboration with Fredrik Folkare of death metal icons UNLEASHED, it’s an album that proclaims its creators’ idiosyncratic approach to hammering their infernal point home.
