Manchester based Leeched have just released their latest album To Dull The Blades Of Your Abuse through Prosthetic Records, which is an absolute rollercoaster of a metallic grind attack. Haven’t heard it yet? Don’t wait any longer and make sure you check it out here. It is a beast.
We asked singer and bassist Laurie Morbey about the 3 records that have influenced him and his band the most. Check out his response here:
Sepultura – Chaos A.D.
One can only hope to carve out a legacy as profound as the Cavalera brothers. When I hit middle age, I want to be smashing a shopping basket for a guest appearance for an avant garde noise-grind band. These days, you can hit anything, call it art, and everyone just laps it up without a second thought??
Machine Head – Burn My Eyes
You know it’s fucked up man, all my friends in bands and stuff. They used to play shows and bitch about the government. And how the government fucks everybody over and how much they hated it and stuff. And then they grow older and now they join a party and they act like their opinion matters, like oh well, maybe government’s OK since I’m a Democrat or since I’m a Republican. But it’s not. It’s the same government you bitched about when you were fucking twenty years old playing in a fucking death metal band or a thrash band or whatever the fuck you played in.
YOU JUST GOT OLD AND SOFT. YOU JUST GOT SENILE AND BRAIN WASHED. AND NOW YOU’RE JUST A FUCKING STUPID, SON OF A BITCH. FUCK YOU!!
Trap Them – Darker Handcraft
Can’t understand what he’s singing? Me neither. And as far as I can tell the only existing written copy in existence is in possession of the man who wrote them. So, I guess the mystery died with the band at the end of the year MMXVII. We’ll never know.
