ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Leisur Hive (formerlly Leisurehive) were formed by Daniel Knowler and Maria Vellanz in an attempt to fuse angular, avant-rock songforms with an emotional, visceral intensity.

Their abrasive tones have been compared to such musical individualists as Swans, Cranes, Wire, Cop Shoot Cop and The Fall, but Leisur Hive exist very much in their own personal world.

Spasm was originally released in 2001. Since then Leisur Hive have expanded the line-up to include bassist Mark Bishop (Living With Eating Disorders, Colt etc) and drummer Bob Leith (Cardiacs, ATV etc).

A new album is due for release at the end of May 2008.

Leisur Hive is one of those bands that are not easy to pigeonhole, which is nice of course (and a rare quality today!). If you were hard pressed to drop names in order to describe their musical style, you'd probably think of Cop Shoot Cop or The Fall. Nonconformists with an open mind, that is.

"Spasm" is Leisur Hive's second album CD, and, judging from that, the band provide an astonishing amount of sheer energy. Most titles are driven by a mighty, mighty bass line, layered by a wall of, sometimes very dissonant, guitar noise. Add to that Daniel's monotonous rants, twisted melodies, plus a straightforward production, and you get a very promising album that stands way above many current independent releases.

Yes, the production work is just right for this kind of music. No glossy polish, the jagged edges left intact, so even the more accessible songs have kept their original harshness. That's an important thing, as Leisur Hive clearly have something to say: the monotony, bitterness and cynicism in their songs obviously mirror the way they see the world
