LENG TCH'E, and the legacy continues. Belgian grindcore quintet LENG TCH'E are the latest standout grindcore troupe to join the heralded ranks of the Relapse Records roster. With The Process of Elimination, LENG TCH'E deliver some of the most devastating grindcore on the planet today.
LENG TCH'E aka death by a thousand cuts, is an ancient Chinese torture ritual where the victim has been doped up and is being cut into bits. The victim doesn't feel a thing of this procedure until it is far too late and death is unavoidable.
LENG TCH'E the band formed in early 2001, founded by Sven (drums, Aborted), Isaac (vocals, BBB, Permanent Death), Kevin (Bass) and Glen (guitars, Dark Ages).
Basing their own hybrid of grindcore on bands such as REGURGITATE, HEMDALE, NASUM and BLOOD DUSTER and mixing it all up with some stoner / rock / hardcore influences, the band baptized their own unique style, now known as 'razorgrind'.
The past two years have seen the band work through a number of line up changes before finally solidifying into its current incarnation of Sven (drums), Boris (vocals, Suppository), Nikki G (guitars), The Spleenventer (guitars, Spleen) and Nicolas (bass). The quintet have recorded two albums that have been released by The Spew Records in Europe. Noted underground label Willowtip issued the much talked about Man Made Predator in the USA most recently.
LENG TCH'E then signed a deal with Relapse Records for their new album, The Process Of Elimination. This album was recorded in the CCR studios in Belgium and was mixed / mastered by Tue Madsen at the Antfarm studios in Denmark (MNEMIC, ABORTED, THE HAUNTED, HATESPHERE). On the new album, hooks that sink into your brain accompany some of the fastest and most extreme grind to emerge in years as LENG TCH'E prove that grindcore can continue to evolve, while staying true to its formative roots. This is the new sound of extreme - don't be left behind.
