As French heavy, yet melodic stoner rock power trio Greyborn prepare to release their debut five-track EP Leeches next month through F2M Planet, The Shaman can today bring you the, slightly creepy, video for the title track. Filmed and edited by Thomas Marchand, it features a possessed figure haunting over the band, helping to capture Leeches despondent vibe.
The band explains, ‘Leeches is about finding a cure for despair. The song talks about us all vampirizing ourselves with lies and beliefs, to avoid some even more painful thoughts and truth.’

More On Greyborn & ‘Leeches’
Beholding the ashes of their former band Mama’s Gun, the rhythm section made of Théo Jude (vocals and drums) and Guillaume Barrou (bass) felt the urge to materialize their new ideas and ambitions and quickly invited guitarist Maxime Conan (also bandmate of Jude in Blackbird Hill) to seal the line-up of their new project: Greyborn. A handful of demoed tracks and salutary jams later, the trio gave birth to their five-track debut EP Leeches.
The story of Greyborn began in this small interval between light and darkness, somewhere in the cold and mineral city of Limoges. The hopes of a hedonistic generation get shattered as they come up against the programmed decline of our civilization. Greyborn is the messenger of this mass disenchantment, providing its corrosive yet hip-swaying soundtrack, and taking its cue from influences as varied as Red Fang, Queens of the Stone Age and Triggerfinger. Their decadent brand of heavy rock feeds in the world’s darkest corners and follows its own rules, and you won’t help but get struck by its lyricism, taking the form of a poetic political satire.
