Twan Fleuren, ex. bassist of modern death-thrashers Legion Of The Damned, has committed suicide, several weeks after the departure of their guitarist Richard Ebisch.
Twan was with the band from the beginning, departing mid-way through their first tour with Kataclysm and Cannibal Corpse in 2006, due to complications during his sons birth, and was replaced by Harold Gielen.
Vocalist, Maurice, states; “Twan has been a great friend and we lost contact for several years because he was going through difficult times. Only a few weeks ago we were all back in contact again, and it felt like these great old times were about to return. Erik and I joined him on a terrace for a beer a few weeks ago. This struck as a bomb, not just for me personally, but also for the band. We wish his family and kids all the strength they need in this process. We will miss you brother and of course all of the upcoming Legion of the damned shows will be dedicated in his name!”
Drummer Erik announced following: “We knew that Twan had to face some extremely 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. Rest in peace my friend!”
