“The madness of decaying urban jungle, endless nights without sleep, strange dreams that you remain thinking about through the next day, chronic back pain, cramped up stomach, pathetic porcelain faces around you with a permanent smile, the fact that you can relate to the cat that lives with you more than you can to other people and years of repressed aggression that needs to get out badly”, that’s how Netherlands based Slovenian band Leechfeast describe their music.
Their second LP “Neon Crosses”, four tracks of sluggishly slow doom dirges soaked in tar-like grime and heaps of refuse, has been released in 2018 by Dry Cough Records and Rope or Guillotine. A game changing sludge record, ghastly and almost demonic but also haunting and atmospheric in mood and tone, “Neon Crosses” detaches from a classic piece of heaviness in its massive sound ranges and a tasty melodic nod.
As “Teeth of Divine” puts it “the impressive part about Neon Crosses and Leechfeast is the fact that there is arrangement and memorable parts crammed into their murky swamp of sewage suffocation”, and this is even more obvious during their live sets.
Their new EP “Village Creep”’ is due for release late spring 2019
