Belgium's razorgrind pioneers LENG TCH'E have issued the following update:
"It is a well known fact that everybody in LENG TCH'E is an incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist (PS: John Myung, stop e-mailing me for tabs). So instead of looking for a second guitar player, Nicolas will return to his original position as guitarist, leaving the bass player spot indeed vacant. If you think you have the balls to play bass in LENG TCH'E, tons of motivation, your own gear and transportation, then send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org."

Leng Tch'e has officially announced a replacement for recently departed drummer, Svencho. Now joining the band is Tony Van den Eynde, of Belgian death metal band The Seventh. Here's a statement from the band:
"Tony was actually recommended to us by our ex-guitar player and founding member Glen. Many people heeded the call when the word was out that we needed a new skinsman and it was a tough decision to make in the end, but we believe Tony has all the skills to take us to the next level. His power and technique will baffle you all. We'd like to thank everybody who contacted us and made the effort to come down and jam with us. You can catch us live with the new lineup before we hit the big festivals in August at the try-out gigs later this month: July 28th at Nevelfest in Merksem (B) and July 29th at 'De Triangel' in Weert (NL)."
Leng Tch'e has announced the departure of drummer Svencho. A founding member of the band, Svencho has chosen to focus on his other band, Aborted, in addition to other musical projects. According to the group, "We thank him for the years invested in Leng Tch'e and wish him luck in his future endeavours. However, this will definitely not be the end of the band since we feel that 'Marasmus' is our strongest record to date and therefor we will continue on our path of mayhem and destruction."
The Belgian outfit is currently seeking a replacement. Interested parties should contact the band at email@example.com.
Belgian grind band Leng Tch'e has officially found a replacement for departed guitarist Geert Devenster. Now joining the band is Peter Goermaere (also of Aborted). Goermaere will make his live debut with the band next week as they begin a brief European tour with Immolation and Krisiun.
Massachusetts' THE ACACIA STRAIN have completed plans to head over seas for a European tour in support of the band's current release, The Dead Walk.

LENG TCH'E have posted two new tracks on their MySpace page. The songs called 'Lucid Denial' and 'Tightrope Propaganda' will be on the upcoming album Marasmus, due out March 6th on Relapse Records.
The CD was recorded in September 2006 at CCR studios in Belgium and mixed at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström. Mastering was done by Alan Douches at West-West Side Music in New York.
Taken from the Relapse website: "Belgian grinders Leng Tch'e drop the hammer with their new full-length Marasmus. A heavier and more measured bludgeoning than previous records, Marasmus sees the band incorporating more pronounced death metal riffage to their pummeling grind assault. Marasmus finds Leng Tch'e maximizing their already lethal damage per square riff ratio with a more deliberate sense of pace. An absolute blinder of a full-length, Marasmus puts Leng Tch'e squarely at the forefront of the modern extreme scene."
Belgian grind band Leng Tch'e have announced that work on their latest studio effort, "Marasmus", is finished. Engineered by Fredrik Nordstrom and recorded at CCR Studios in Sweden, the album is due to be released sometime in March next year. Sven De Caluwe, the group's drummer, had this to say:
"It took us quite some time and a lot of hardships to get everything the way we wanted but we're done with recording the new LT album and it was definitely all worth it. "Marasmus" is definitely the most interesting & heavy sounding record we've made so far. It goes from heavy to groovy to plain ridiculously fast, so there's a little bit for everyone on this one. We can't wait to have this out there for you maniacs to get a hold on to!! Expect nothing but razorgrind in it's most extreme and diverse form!"The outfit has also recently released a split-cd with french band Warscars, which features 8 new Leng Tch'e songs (more info at RazorGrind), 2 tracks from which can be heard on the bands MySpace page.
Belgian razorgrind pioneers LENG TCH'E have posted two new songs, 'Confluence of Consumers' and 'Self-Pity as a Daily Routine,' on their MySpace page. The tracks will be featured on the band's upcoming split CD with WARSCARS, due in September via Bones Brigade.
LENG TCH'E entered the studio last month to begin recording the follow-up to their Relapse Records debut, "The Process Of Elimination". The new record has been given the tentative title of "Marasmus" and will be mixed September 18-22 at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström. The CD should be unleashed upon the public in March/April 2007 on Relapse Records. Expect longer songs, more intricate rhythms and lots of more variation than on the previous LENG TCH'E records. Mixing up the roots of the band with a new found mature sound, "Marasmus" will become the band's most varied, catchy and definitely most insane blasting effort.
LENG TCH'E have been confirmed for the renowned Summer Breeze Festival, set to take place August 17-19, 2006 in the Ostalbkreis district in Germany.

Leng Tch'e (Sven De Caluwé: Drums, Jan Hallaert: Guitar, Boris Cornelissen: Vocals, Geert Deverster: Guitar, Nicolas Malfeyt: bass) furrow apart the standards of traditional grindcore and suture it together with hardcore and doom appendages.
On the topic of signing to the band's new home, De Caluwé states, "What can one say about getting signed to a record company one has been looking up to for the past ten years, owning most of their discography & growing up with the label as a fan and now getting a chance to become a part of this legacy is simply amazing. It's definitely a big honor for us to be a part of the Relapse roster, being among all bands who we look up to & work with people who are devoted to the scene. We're thrilled about all this & can't wait to get the new record out & to see all you crazy mofos on tour!"
