Formed in the beginning of the millennium, Belgian grinders Leng Tch'e have made it to the top relatively quick. Unlike other bands that release singles and splits and any other conceivable format of music, Leng Tch'e have only released three albums so far, and their newest The Process Of Elimination should give them now the necessary attention and recognition, as they finally signed to a big independent label and had the opportunity to tour Europe with Morbid Angel earlier this year.

And although there is not much new that can be added to the grindcore genre, Leng Tch'e combine effortlessly the speed of the old school with the ferocious production of the present scene. Even if their songs are hardly ever longer than two minutes, and most of the time they are truly speed-blasting as if there were no tomorrow, Leng Tch'e are smart enough to add the occasional mid-tempo riffs that emphasise the following fast parts even stronger. Especially PIMP is a good example of a fun groove'n'roll track that even surprises with an organ solo. But don't worry, that track is just an exception, although a welcome one. Most of the two dozen tracks are pure quality noise, with the opener The Fist Of The Leng Tch'e showing instantly what you're about to witness.

If you are into bands like Rotten Sound, Nasum and Regurgitate, then you have to put Leng Tch'e on your shopping list, as they own the future of modern grindcore. It's fast, it's got a tremendous production, there is enough variety to keep you from getting bored, and the running time is just perfect for this kind of album.
