After Formis, this is "Cyanide Christ" by Leech, another CD from the mega-pack from Marcin of Mythrone Promotion! Leech is a project created in an unspecified period (2003, if I understood correctly) by people of the calibre of Jens C. Mortensen (vocals), Jari Kuusisto (rhythm guitars) and Lars Lindèn (bass) from Carnal Forge, Magnus Söderman (lead guitars) from Nightrage and Stefan Westerberg (drums) from Skineater and ex-Carnal Forge, so we are talking about real veterans of the Swedish death/thrash metal scene. So far, their only release under the name of Leech is the album "Cyanide Christ", that was published by the small label from Sweden LL Production but, 4 years later, the stronger Polish Defense Records thought well to reissue it on CD so to give to it a better distribution. This means that, finally, many maniacs can enjoy now this thrashing slab that was remained mostly forgotten at the time of its first release!
