“In a time where the modern human psyche often seems obsessed with evolution, advancement, expediency and a so called constant slope of increase, all too undervalued and unspoken on is the art of dismantlement. Reduction. The mastery of nuance and a deeper understanding of time. The ability to sit in a space, perhaps at times unmoving to feel the moments weight and presence. Perceptions of pacing are often equated aesthetically and symbolically: ‘Blistering hyper-blasts’ or ‘Molasses like doom’ – Yet, more important than anything, one should not be the often too quick to judge a concept based solely on the aspect of movement, but perhaps instead of intent, texture and feeling.

Both of these bands exist as far deeper sums of what is often a quick to categorize sound, and display that innovation, atmosphere, and overall feeling from the result is still the most crucial aspect in the fire of creation regardless of pace, time, or space.”

– Brandon Hill (Cloud Rat / Fantastique / Starved Relations)

Formed in 2008 when Dominic Finbow of Moss (UK) arrived in Vancouver, BC joined by Nick and Adam (Ceremonial Bloodbath / Goatsblood / Radioactive Vomit /Deathwinds) to create hopeless, miserable doom. Buried by a mutual disdain of most things, yet a collective passion for slow ugly noise, the feral entity of suffering and madness, Nightfucker, was born!

Treading a similar nightmare path to hell as Corrupted, Grief, Winter, and Noothgrush follow an incoherent; nightmare existence viewed through a broken lens of depression and confusion. In this case, the pit is examined from within, not above.

“Nightfucker spew forth a churning miasma of slow moving and gut-wrenching terror conceived with the sole goal of representing in the most repulsive way possible the most degraded forms of human life, and explore themes addiction, abuse, suicide, hallucinations, delusions, mental illness, self-harm, and complete human collapse with revolting lucidity.”

Following the 2018 release of their second full-length »Neon Crosses«, »Village Creep« EP saw the light of day a year later, with the record opening new dimensions in their sound, structures and instrument use. Without losing their energy and essence, Leechfeast gave their songs a different emotional charge, often letting the absence of sound and instruments create the heaviness they would normally achieve by doing the opposite.

With releases underway in the upcoming year, the focus has shifted towards the sounds and use of acoustic instruments in their music, with several songs featuring collaborations with different artists, adding a somewhat more physical component to their sound.

Lyrically, while still addressing modern life and themes of mental disorders and human relations, they are taking inspiration from medieval views on the body and death rituals, creating an odd but rich amalgamation of concepts where the line between corporeal and spiritual becomes blurred and a world where time loses its linearity.
