Leng Tch'e
Style: Grindcore/ Deathgrind
Release date: April 16th 2010

Leng Tch’e is one of the grindcore bands (and let us for a moment forget the discussions about who plays “real” grindcore anymore) that in my view actually brings something worthwhile to the genre. It must be said though that they are not covering new ground, they just do what they do in a high quality and with their own expression even if the influence from Napalm Death is evident.  That said you can also hear clear traces of old school death metal like Cannibal Corpse and that is not a bad thing either.

Serge Kasongo is the new vocalist of the Leng Tch’e and he does an excellent job as a very fearsome front man. The musicianship is really good and the production is good though some grind purists may find it too clean. The individual tracks are quite diverse from each other and the album keeps being interesting even after repeated listening. I enjoyed the album quite a lot and can recommend it to fans of both grindcore and death metal.  This is not your standard grindcore, this is deathgrind with a groove and death metal elements and I really like it.
