Leech Woman have been destroying musical boundaries since their incarnation. Never following the obvious route through the industrial underground, picking up influences as diverse as Foetus, Test Dept, Neurosis and Discharge. Electronic beats and tribal rhythms merge under a barbed wire bass and shredding guitar producing a dark and sinister back drop for the snarling vocal attack. Always on the edge and never fitting neatly into any scene. This unorthodox quartet have played with the likes of Foetus, Alec Empire, Unsane, Godflesh, Ultraviolence, Cubanate and Die Krupps amongst many others.
On stage the band is made up of P. Rise (guitar, vocals and live drums), Rog (metal percussion) and Alex B. (bass and vocals), with Raye completing the line-up behind the scenes with live sound, sampling and programming.
The debut album 33 Degrees was released on Invisible Records / Alternative Tentacles to much critical acclaim (5/5 – Metal Hammer, 4/5 – Terrorizer). The second release Shit, Piss and Industrial Waste, a selection of new material and remixes released on the band’s own lable Quai Loh Records, also received great enthusiasm (9/10 – Metal Hammer, 4/5 – Rock Sound, 8.5/10 – Terrorizer). The bands second album, Three 3Zero, produced by 2nd Gens Wajid Yassen has been receiving glowing reviews in the UK metal press, 9/10 – Metal Hammer, 4/5 – Kerrang, 4.5/5 – Rock Sound and 8.5/10 – Terrorizer, as well as great live reviews.
Leech Woman’s brooding track Breaker has backed the BBC’s Top Gear’s Porche 911 feature as well as unsettling audiences on the soundtrack to The American Nightmare, a feature length documentary on the Vietnam war and its relation with the work of American horror film directors including, George Romero, John Carpenter, Wes Craven and David Cronenberg.
