Swiss psychedelic doom metal trio Leaden Fumes presents their sophomore album, »Kanashibari«, which was released on April 14th, 2023 via Sixteentimes Music.

Formed in 2016 in Basel, Switzerland, Leaden Fumes features veterans of the local scene. Their music contains elements from punk to black metal, while retaining the heavyness and slowness of classic doom.

Leaden Fumes is a down-tuned heavy doom band arisen from the ashes of Phased, the cult stoner-doom band singer and bassist Christian S formed way back in 1997. Phased, Switzerland’s first stoner band and the only Swiss band to sign to Elektrohasch, released four acclaimed albums between 2001 & 2016 and played Stoned From The Underground, Up In Smoke, Rock Altitude and other festivals supporting bands such as: Neurosis, Mastodon, High On Fire, Spirit Caravan, Orange Goblin, etc.

With Leaden Fumes, two members of that group reconvene to wreak fresh mayhem. Switching from guitar to bass, Christian S is giving Leaden Fumes the ultra low-end spark, while guitarist Florian S is responsible for the spacey high-end part and drummer Jonathan S completes the line-up as the master of tricky wicked rhythms.
