leeched You Took the Sun When You Left (CD, £11.50)label: prosthetic
In just a very short time, Manchester hardcore crew, Leeched established themselves as one of the most buzzed about, up-and-coming bands in the UK. After listing to their caustic dystopia of chaotic hardcore, Nasum-precision grind and a menacing atmospheric undercurrent akin to early Godflesh, itís easy to understand why. Their debut full length is 11 tracks of dark, bleak and brutal tracks set atop of todayís despair and desolate industrialised landscape. Prior to the albumís street date, the band spent the Summer playing festivals throughout Europe as well as appearing on opening slots with UK stalwarts Employed To Serve and the USís crustcore band, Full of Hell. Barely a year after they formed, and with an incessantly intense EP -†Nothing Will Grow From The Rotten Ground -†already under their belts, LEECHED are taking a fast-paced swipe at the world around them. Bands sharing a distaste for the status quo, or a dissatisfaction for†the world around them may not be something new, but few bands are doing it with the vitriol and vehemence that is offered up on You Took The Sun When You Left. Taking influence from every dark and dingy corner of extreme music, LEECHED may be moving at breakneck speed, but they're a band who are quickly finding their feet - both in the studio and out on the road.
