LEIF ERICSSON, THE
s/t (2007/BOMBED OUT)

The self titled release contains 11 blasts of utterly brilliant punk-rock. Like many UK (and Gainesville) bands before, The "Leif" take their musical queues from SNUFF and LEATHERFACE but add an anthemic quality that also brings to mind the finest in 80s UK punk. The SNUFF influence in particular runs more than skin-deep as singer/guitarist Will Farley also moonlights in Duncan Redmonds' BILLY NO MATES.

hypomaniac (2010/SEASON OF MIST)
GRINDCORE. Styled by themselves as razorgrind after the same title of their 1st release (a split 7" with BLACK OPS) the sound of these 4 Belgian maniacs contains a choice selection of grindcore and death-metal, hardcore, bits of doom and even pieces of stoner-rock. Those 14 new tracks are the best and most variedly they've recorded so far.
GRINDCORE. Belgian grinders LENG TCH'E drop the hammer with their new full-length "marasmus". A heavier and more measured bludgeoning than previous records, "Marasmus" sees the band incorporating more pronounced death-metal riffage to their pummeling grind assault. "marasmus" finds LENG TCH'E maximizing their already lethal damage per square riff ratio with a more deliberate sense of pace. An absolute blinder of a full-length, "marasmus" puts LENG TCH'E squarely at the forefront of the modern extreme scene.
