LEECHES, THE: Underwater: CD

Italian punk band here goin’ for that “anthems for the ages” sound. Not much in the way of song dynamics, and they aren’t really doin’ much that sets them apart from the rather large pack of punters doing the same, but their efforts aren’t particularly noxious or anything. Produced by Daniel Rey. Those who’ve been keeping score will remember him as a former member of Shrapnel and producer for many of the Ramones’ later albums. –Jimmy Alvarado
