BASS & VOCALS
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 was one of Switzerland's first stoner bands, and the only Swiss band to sign to Elektrohasch. The band 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 the bass, Christian S is giving LEADEN FUMES the ultra low-end spark, while guitarist Florian S is responsible for the wicked high-end tones and drummer Jonathan S completes the line-up as the master of the tricky-wicked-rhythms.
In 2017 the band recorded and released a four song demo-CD and played their debut show at the legendary local venue "Hirscheneck". In 2018 they played a local festival (Souterrain Festivität), headlined a metal-night in Zürich, and played their first shows in Germany - among them the "Deep Sound City" festival. Early in 2019 they interrupted their recording session preaparations to play a short announced show and then went into their own studio to record their first album entitled "Volume". "Volume" will feature seven new songs that showcase the trademark slow doom of theirs, as well as influences from math-rock to black-metal.
Some bands they have played with:
Aluk Todolo (F), Elder (USA), Greenmachine (Japan), SYK (Italy), Toke (USA), Year Of The Cobra (USA).
