LEECHED have today premiered their new album, To Dull The Blades Of Your Abuse, via Kerrang! Magazine. The album is released this Friday, January 31, but an early listen is available via the below link. To Dull The Blades Of Your Abuse is available to pre-order now; LEECHED are on tour in the UK, starting tonight. Scroll down for full tour dates.
Since the release of their debut full length, You Took The Sun When You Left, LEECHED have honed their craft, embraced a far denser production ethos and have edged much closer to the sound they envisaged when they first formed as a band. By pushing the boundaries of their own comfort zones during the writing and recording, they have created an album that fizzes with discordance and teeters precariously on the precipice of the abyss.
"...it's so ferociously succinct that you won't be able to get enough of these apoplectic youngsters." - Metal Hammer
"It becomes clear that Leeched are now one of Britain's breakout extreme metal acts" - Decibel
"It's not pretty, it's not charming, but as a work of unfiltered malevolence, this is immense." - Kerrang!
"...Leeched has returned, exceptionally fast as usual, and with even more hatred than before" - The Sludgelord
