LENG TCH’E, which means something like “death of a thousand cuts”, was an often used torture method in ancient China, the victims had been intoxicated and then cut into pieces… This is also the very tasteful name of a Belgian Grind band, consisting of (former)-members of ABORTED, DARK AGES, SUPPOSITORY and LEHAVOTH. Formerly, they were named ANAL TORTURE, which isn’t less painful, isn’t it?
Since NASUM, I haven’t listened to such a deadly and great Grind record! Relentless brutality, groovy monster parts and unbelievable massacre parts are all meshed together. Furthermore, it has a hellish production and it’s quite joyful, you just want to sing along… but fronter El Bastardo seems not be able to sing! But this is, of course, nothing you expect from a Grindcore album. He pukes, yells, bawls and roars – but with little Hardcore touches. There is a mixture of Crust-, Hardcore and of course Death Metal to discover and LENG TCH’E are technically skilled. But they are full of hate, like an angry tank, which overruns everything but always with a sense for a rhythmic feeling… (Online August 31, 2005)
