Marcel H. : After two demos, an EP, two splits and a full-length during the first five years of their existence Leechfeast, from Slovenia, now releases their second full-length during their eighth year. Totally unknown with the gentlemen’s previous work I put on the four songs of ‘Neon Crosses’. We’re being beaten around the ears with 37 minutes of very slow sludge which at times borders on doom death. It tugs along and crushes everything in sight, as if you’re being pulverized by a steamroller. Melody is present, but not in the conventional sense of the word. So, it is nigh impossible to sing along to unlike what you come across in certain kinds of sludge. It’s a kind of Primitive Man meets Black Sabbath and Meth Drinker. All is well-executed and certainly something with a lot of replay value. ‘Neon Crosses’ has a limited release of 300 vinyl copies and will be released on cassette by Indonesian label Hellas Records in the future.
