Leaden Fumes have a new video to the heavy song "The Eclectic Lizard" from Kanashibari, shared by Progrockjournal.


The new album KANASHIBARI is out! It is available from Sixteentimes Music. Get it here, or here.


Attention! Attention! Attention!

Pre-order of the new album "Kanashibari" has now begun at Sixteentimes Music's bandcamp site!



Here is the flyer for our record release show at Humbug Basel:


Yes! We participated at RegioSoundCredit and were chosen - among 36 candiates - to receive money for our coming album and video. Thank you Musikbüro Basel! We also can announce the record-release show will be at Humbug, Basel 14th April and our special guests will be Soldat Hans (folk doom from Winterthur) and Retromorcego (tropical death grunge from Basel).


Here it is... the new video to the new song Car Thief from our upcoming album on Sixteentimes Music: Car Thief Clip. And the record release show will be at Humbug on 14th April together with Soldat Hans from Winteerthur, and fellow Basel group Retromorcego. And while we're on the topic of live shows - the show at Sudhaus was a blast. Hopefully some live footage will surface soon.


Here we go... first show of the new year: 18.02. @ Loch, Basel together with our label mates Midnight Deadbeats.


We are back to rehearsing as the regular trio. The show with Renato from Echolot as stand-in was a blast. We played three trippy spaced out songs that went down very well and some of that might enter our set of new songs...


Even though our guitarist has broken his hand and we can neither rehearse nor play live, we are being productive... Last weekend we had a foto-shoot with Michael Greilinger, and soon we will shoot a first video for our upcoming new release on Sixteentimes Music, and finally, we will play a special show with Renato from Echolot helping out, where we will perform three improvisational and droney, trippy songs at the Glubos 50-year-jubilee fest.

Meanwhile, we hope that broken hand will heal nicely and quick, so that Flo can let the guitar scream again and we can proceed to bleed black...


Corona rears its ugly head again - our show with Human Impact (feat. members of Swans, Cop Shoot Cop and Unsane) was cancelled due to an outbreak in the headliner's camp. So it starts again. So we are frustrated again. So... we had a meeting with our label boss at Sixteentimes Music. Looks like we can look forward to a release date early in 2023.


The two shows with Acid Rooster and Magister were a blast. Thanks to Slow Club and Quarterdeck and everyone who came to enjoy our music! Meanwhile we are featured on a current Weedian compilation dedicated to Swiss bands.


Leaden Fumes are signing to Sixteentimesmusic! The new album "Kanashibari" will be released on vinyl and CD in early 2023. Also we'll be playing two shows in April, together with German bands Acid Rooster and Magister. The shows are in Basel and Freiburg.



Leaden Fumes drove down to the south of France for two shows together with Le Club des Gens Speciaux. We had a blast! Now we are back we will shop around for a label for the upcoming second album and write new songs, since there's not much else to do with Covid-cases rising and another lockdown (in whatever form) imminent.


Two shows to announce - in the south of France: Fri 19.11. in Besseges at La Sauce B16 and Sat 20.11. in Die at Nickcave (?). Looking forward to play with our mates Le Club Des Gens Speciaux.


Tonite (25th) and tomorrow exclusively on Doomfarmfest Vol.4 you can watch us perform three songs while we were in the recording studio.


We will participate at the next Electric Sabbath Doomfest. It's an online event and we recorded our set live in the studio in-between recording our new album. Here is a teaser. We also received another belated review of our first album. Find it here.


Our performance live at Radio X is now online. You can find it here.


We were in the recording studio! We recorded six brand new songs with Marc Obrist (Zeal&Ardor), and are now slowly mixing the album and looking for a new label.

We will also play live on Radio X. May 18th will see a special Leaden Fumes broadcast with 30 minutes of songs and interviews on Metal X.


The year is 2021 and special circumstances still hold valid. Nevertheless we have been busy writing songs and are now in the pre-production stage... six songs are being recorded and then we'll prepare for the real studio recordings in April. Hopefully there will also be live shows to announce sometime in the near future!


The two shows with Deville were cancelled due to the ususal circumstances of Corona. Other than that, there is not much to write about. The band is writing and rehearsing new songs and waiting for the live-circuit to come alive again. Sad times...


We have two shows to announce! While our drummer just has released a new album with his other band Echolot and played a successful release show recently, Leaden Fumes are proud to announce we will play two dates this month - together with Deville from Sweden we will rock in Basel and Oberentfelden.


Strange times indeed... no saying just when we can resuem our live activities. Following our first show after lockdown, the venue closed again. Oh well, what a shame! So, in the meantime we are writing new songs and practicing them and might be recording our next album pretty soon...


We are back in business - Leaden Fumes will headline a local three band event with our friends TYSG & Midnight Deadbeats:


All reviews have been collected on the "media" side - new ones will be added as they come in... we are now concentrating on writing new songs and are hoping that we can play live again soon. Meanwhile, stay healthy, stay free, stay doomed.


The first  interviews are rolling in, as well as more reviews. We will post them on the "media" side. Meanwhile here for you to enjoy during these times of isolation and no concerts - a short clip with 30 minutes of Leaden Fumes live in the practice room.


Here are some words from The Obelisk about our new album. We had an awesome weekend in Berlin and Leipzig. Thanks to Lord Vicar, The Gates Of Slumber and Tom who booked this cool event in Berlin. Thanks to the amazing crowd! And thanks also to Christopher Colossus for a shattering show in Leipzig.

Had a fantastic show last night! The Leaden Fumes duo version is a force to be reckoned with. Also did a cover of Che by Suicide, which morphed into The Lights, The Sound... by Flipper together with the Syvään members. Florian ripped the strings from his guitar and Christian did a David Yow...


The Leaden Fumes Drone Duo rises again. Florian and Christian will play Ebrietas in Zürich, together with Syvään (sporting Rolf from Bloodstar and Michael of ex-Phased fame) and Purpura. After the respective sets of Syvään and Leaden Fumes Drone Duo, the Leaden Syvään Big Band Orchestra takes the stage to play Che by Suicide.



Working hard on the release of our first album and trying to book some shows.


New homepage finally online after some issues with the provider. Sorry for the long delay. What's up? We recorded our first album and are preparing its release. We have a show in Zürich (CH) on 27th August, with Aluk Todolo. It will be a special showcase with the Leaden Fumes Drone Duo, as our drummer is unavailable!

Also, we have produced a pod-cast, which we will be airing soon... stay tuned for some funny discussions in Swiss-German dialect!!!


Our singer and bass-player appeared on national Swiss television. In the series "Der Bestatter" he performs playback as guitarist in a fictional band. The song used is an old song of his (Hopeless Case) that appeared on the PHASED album "Schtomp & Decadence" - fun fact: you can hear Christian's voice, but it is an actor who "sings".

The episode "Spiel mit dem Feuer" was aired Tue 5th and Thu 7th February on SRF 1 and SRF 2.
