If it’s burly, melodic, and fits together perfectly, it’s probably from Sweden. LEACH certainly are, and their warts-and-all style of thrash-n’-roll is just begging for a throwdown. With relentlessly chugging grooves, pure furiosity, and anthemic riffs carved-out from the foundation of rock itself – LEACH manages to combine and redefine the greatness in thrash metal, hardcore and straight up rock’n’roll without ever being a one-trick pony.
Redefining the Swedish west coast – When coming from such a rich scene as Sweden (Borås), a band cannot help but take some influence from their forefathers – in this case, the insistent energy of a Raised Fist, the rock n’ roll parts of a latter-day Entombed, and the infectious melodies of At the Gates. But it’s not all Svenska – the US gets a look in, with Hatebreed’s snarling bravado, and the thrash-fest of Exodus and Nuclear Assault. All of these influences have been distilled into a potent concoction that is instantly recognizable and wholly theirs.
LEACH is a band built for the stage – that much is clear. And with live experiences that stretches through Europe and as far as Dubai – their frantic energy has been proven. LEACH not only knows how to get the pit started, but to remain vibrant ‘til the very last note…
