30/09/2010 Wehrmacht putting finishing touches on new EP
Reactivated late 1980s Portland, Oregon-based thrash metal/hardcore band WEHRMACHT is putting the finishing touches on a new EP, "Fast As A Shark Attack", to be released in time for the group's upcoming European tour. According to guitarist John Duffy, the CD will feature "brand new, kick-ass recordings" of "Shark Attack", "United Shoe Brothers" and a "killer" cover of ACCEPT's "Fast As A Shark".

WEHRMACHT's European trek, which kicks off on November 12 in Belgium, will be preceded by a huge farewell gig for the club Satyricon with POISON IDEA and many other bands on October 31. WEHRMACHT states, "We will definitely miss our old stomping ground as this venue holds many great memories for us."

In the mid-'80s when most west coast metal bands in America were copying either METALLICA or MÖTLEY CRÜE, WEHRMACHT had a different approach which set them apart! By 1986 the band's self-distributed demo cassette and an appearance on the "Speed Metal Hell" compilation series had gained the group considerable acclaim in the metal underground. Music publications such as England's Metal Forces and the Netherlands' Aardschok were among many to praise WEHRMACHT's original sound.

In 1987, New Renaissance Records released WEHRMACHT's debut album entitled "Shark Attack". Although "Shark Attack" was well received by the metal underground, until 1999, it was never available in America on compact disc.

After "Shark Attack", the band set out to record their second album. That album, "Biermacht", was released in spring of 1988 on CD, LP, and cassette. Despite substantial pre-orders for "Biermacht", many record shops and distributors returned the products to the record company after discovering a song entitled "Suck My Dick" was listed on the album's cover. Many distributors also complained about the cover artwork.

Havoc is a snow white straightjacket for Rock & Roll-core. They’re not 100% punk, they’re not 100% hardcore, they’re not 100% metal… It’s incredibly aggressive, fast and sneering! Read more here!

24/01/2010 Leng Tche news
Leng Tche goin RussiaFirst of all, a happy new year to all of you. May 2010 be filled with unmentionable brutality and sickness. We knows ours will be!

Regarding the new album, everything is finished and Mr Russ Russell is finalizing the master as we speak. This is by far the heaviest and most extreme record we've ever made, and if that wasn't enough, the legendary Mr Barney Greenway himself laid down some guest vocals on a little song called "Totalitarian". Brutal as feck, as they apparently say in the Midlands.

We are also close to finalizing a new record deal which I alas cannot yet share with the world. But rest assured it will take Leng Tch'e to places before unseen. All I can say is the new record will be released in May, so prepare for a summer filled with razorgrind mayhem!

In the meantime we've got a bunch of shows lined up in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria and Russia! That's right, Leng Tch'e is going to Moscow... nazdrovje!

08/12/2009 In-Quest, cd release show and MOONM preorder
In-Quest CD release show at Biebob, 19/02/10. Be there!! This is the party we've been waiting for!

Super news; we're expecting the cds real, real soon now. Everything is being wrapped up at the factory as we speak.

"Made Out Of Negative Matter" is totally in hands of the band, and we're releasing it as such: fully independent, completely on our own and without compromising on any level. METAL!

What rumours told you, IS true. It's brutal, abstract, melodic and without doubt IN-QUEST.

From the first second on, MOONM grabs you where it hurts most and demonstrates the elaborate progression the band has made over the last years. This is our call of genuineness against nowadays 'metal flavoured products'...

MOONM is to be released in two formats; a superdeluxe digipack and a strictly limited clamshell box. Both formats will feature the "Mind Over Matter" video as a regular bonus, but the box is our MOONM grail and comes with poster, sticker, postcards, guitar pick and a lanyard. Strictly limited to 250!!

It should be obvious that we've invested our asses to give you, the fans, the most killer In-Quest experience ever. Being anti-trend is cool and respectable but keep in mind that it's also hard to survive ;) So support us back if you pleasah!

By the way, keep an eye on this website if you don't want to miss out on LTD boxes!

Allrighty, out for now. Thanks and cu

17/11/2009 The Maple Room update
The Maple Room back from China TourTime for another update from the TMR front. As most of you know we have been recording our new full length album during the summer. We are finishing up the mixing process as we speak and hope to post some new songs very soon. There is no release date set yet, we’ll see about that but keep your eyes and ears open for more news soon.

During September/October we did an awesome tour through CHINA !! It was amazing and the best tour ever. We want to thank Jef Vreys for guiding us through China for a whole month. We met a lot of new friends, played cool shows and went to places like Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and many many more. We also want to thank Roel Verheyen and Daan Witters for helping us out as our guitar players couldn’t make it. But there was a good reason; our guitar player Tom is now proud father of Seth Van Den Broeck, congratz man!!!

We have posted a small impression on youtube of our China tour. A full documentary is in the works but it will take some time before we release that on the internet, probably beginning of 2010. For now check out this video here !

We are very excited about our new songs and are working very hard to release them somewhere in 2010. We are very busy planning and considering things. We have 3 shows left for this year and we will be playing some new tunes live. So if you want a sneak preview come out and watch us here:
