CD Reviews

Good Stuff
Reza | Lancaster, England | 05/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great band. Often overlooked when it comes to the New York crossover scene as their first album didn't come out till 88'. They sound a bit like Megadeth and Slayer combined with Agnostic Front and Cro-mags. Great stuff. Born to Expire is the best of the bunch as it'sfast and furious. Desperate Measures is a bit slowed down with a big Sabbath influence. Still great though. Be interesting to know what happened to these guys..."
This is good stuff

"This album will appeal especially to people not from around the NYC area. This is where it all started... Leeway were one of the original crossover bands... combining speed metal and the underground hardcore sound happening in the east village and alphabet city in NYC at that time. True hardcore bands were 'heavier', but Leeway really defined a sound. Definitely worth a listen... particularly to Rise and Fall, Be Loud, Born to Expire, and Mark of the Squealer. Email me and tell me what you think..."

"Leeway has given hardcore fans a reason to spend their money on a double CD. Though different in range--cuts from Born to Expire are heavy and furious, while Desperate Measures are more funky--the music still exemplifies the rage Leeway is known for. Fastidious guitar and drums combined with the strong vocal (albeit polar opposite on some songs) range of the singer make this album nothing less than a classic for underground listeners."
