Momentan ist das Lager von Legion Of The Damned ein Hort schlechter Nachrichten. Vor wenigen Wochen verließ Gitarrist Richard Ebisch die Band, jetzt wird bekannt, dass sich ihr ehemaliger Bassist und guter Freund Twan Fleuren das Leben nahm. Über die Hintergründe ist noch wenig bekannt, Sänger Maurice Swinkels erklärt:

„Another very sad day in the Legion camp, Twan has been a great friend and we lost contact for several years because he was in some difficult times, only a few weeks back we were all back in contact again and it felt like these great old times were about to return, even Erik and me joined him on a terrace for a beer or 2 a few weeks ago, he even wanted to join us to With Full Force in July, where I was really looking forward to, he even showed alot of intrest in our new guitarplayer and the departure of Richard Ebisch. The bad news that came in today struck as a bomb not for me only personally but also for the band Legion of the damned.

Of course we wish his family and kids all the strength they need in this process. We will miss you brother and ofcourse all of the upcoming Legion of the damned shows will be dedicated in his name!“

Schlagzeuger Erik Fleuren ergänzt:

„Yet another sad day in the history of Legion of the damned. We knew that Twan had to face some extreme difficult times, but we certainly did not expect this, he was about to join us at some upcoming festivals and we were really looking forward to that. Maurice and I are happy that we still had a nice chat and drink with him at a terrace not so long ago after a really long time of not seeing eachother, rest in peace my friend and my sincere condolences to his family“

Twan Fleuren war schon Teil der Vorgänger-Band von Legion Of The Damned: Occult. 1998 wurde er Teil von Occult und nahm das Album RAGE TO REVENGE (2001) mit ihnen auf. Es folgten das Album ELEGY FOR THE WEAK (2003), wiederveröffentlicht als FEEL THE BLADE (2007), die Umbenennung in Legion Of The Damned und das Album MALEVOLENT RAPTURE (2006).

Twan Fleuren verließ Legion Of The Damned, weil er Vater wurde, es dem Baby aber sehr schlecht ging. Er wurde 2006 von Harold Giele ersetzt.
