Hideous Illusions cover art

LEECHFEAST are a Doom/Sludge Metal Band from Slovenia.

Leechfeast are a brutal as fuck grime infested Doom/Sludge Metal band that play mean, raw and nasty filled Sludge Metal that will make you feel very uncomfortable from the start.

Their latest album - Hideous Illusions - is a 4 song and a 26 minute blast of decaying filth ridden sludge that you won't forget about in a very long time at all.

Jure from the band contacted me about this brilliantly heavy band and I am glad that he did. Otherwise I wouldn't of known about them. This is what he had to say:

"We are a DIY doom/sludge band LEECHFEAST ( from Slovenia featuring members of Paperplanecrash, ex-Melete and Acrid Sunday. Our sound is raw, dirty, noisy, but mostly heavy and down tuned. We just released our first album on LP and tape. LP is released by the band and Shitpiece Records. Tape is released by the Ulterior Tapes. The plan was to do most of the work for the cover and booklet by ourselves (silkscreening, use of recycled paper,....), so we kept the release as DIY and cheap as possible."

You gotta love that label name - Shitpiece Records. This is a band that doesnt care what the mainstream think. This is a band that belongs in the underground and they are happy to stay there.

Check out the brutal and brilliant tracks - Persecution and Sea Of Hair. Both down-tuned, sludge filled masterpieces of the genre.

These guys are the real fucking deal. Everything is done DIY. And I applaud the band for sticking to their ideals and creating some brutal heavy punishing riffs to match as well.

Just headover to BandCamp and download all their material right now. As it's all free. Their 2010 offering - Cassette 2010 is another brilliant album to check out this great band's talent.

If your into THOU then your going to love this. As they play the same type of down-tempo bleak, heavy as fuck in your face Sludge Metal you cannot ignore.

Brilliant, Simply Amazing. Highly Recommended.
