Belgian grindcore act LENG TCH'E has commenced recording the follow-up to 2010's "Hypomanic". The band states: "We have begun tracking drums at Hearse Studio in Heule, Belgium with longtime friend Lander Cluyse. Recordings will continue over the following months because creating a masterpiece takes time, with mixing planned for late summer by Eyal Levi and Jason Suecof at Audiohammer Studios (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, DEICIDE, DEVILDRIVER, CHIMAIRA). Mastering will be handled by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (SEPULTURA, SUFFOCATION, UNEARTH).
"The album will contain 14 tracks of unrelenting and ridiculously heavy grindcore with more groove than you can shake a stick at and enough twists and turns to make you smash your head into a wall in a fit of delirious rage. Expect a release around the end of this year.
"We also have some exciting tour news coming up so stay tuned! And I'm not just talking Europe..."
2012 marked the tenth anniversary of the release of LENG TCH'E's debut album, "Death By A Thousand Cuts".
"Hypomanic" was released in Europe in May 2010 and in North America in June 2010 via Season Of Mist. The CD was recorded at Parlour Studio in Kettering, United Kingdom with producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, EVILE).
LENG TCH'E in 2011 parted ways with drummer Tony Van den Eynde and replaced him with Olivier Coppens.
The band's "A.men" video can be seen below. The live footage was shot at the Obscene Extreme festival in the Czech Republic, filmed by 2guys1tv and edited by Nicolas M.
LENG TCH'E in 2008 split with vocalist Boris Cornelissen and replaced him with Serge Kasongo from southern Belgian band ACKROS.
