SUCKING LEECH - Disillusion of sick illusions


This grind blast from Germany did not have an easy time throughout their career. Formed in 1998 they disappeared from 2002 to 2012 as if the earth had swallowed them up. It was not the kind of a break when the band does not exist or splits up. 2012 does not mean a reincarnation or comeback at all. The reasons for the pause are simpler but the more serious. The ten years of inactivity were caused by a car crash when two members of  SUCKING LEECH spent a long time in a hospital.  

But enough of history for now. Since that time these grinders are back in a great form, released several albums and managed to play an array of gigs with their more well-known mates of Napalm Death, Pungent Stench etc. And in 2017 finally at OEF 2017!!!
