LECHERY was formed in 2004 when the current line-up was completed, but the embryo was born several years earlyer when Martin Bengtsson left Arch Enemy to create his own music. The four members had played together in different bands before and finally the right musical direction was set. Four members with different musical backgrounds and with wide spread influences sure helped to create the soundwith songs based on guitar riffs and melodies with a solid rhythm ground.

After a couple of years of playing small clubs and festivals Lechery recorded their debutalbum "Violator" in 2008. It was a great success in the classic Heavy metal countries, but also in the U.S, and in Sweden Violator was voted top 4 album of 2008. Out on the road Lechery went, and played on and off in all 2008 and 2009 both on major festivals and smaller clubgigs.

In the late 2010 Lechery once again entered the studio to record a new album, and once again the recordings took place in "The sweet spot", with Rickard Bengtsson as producer, who also has worked with such bands as Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars, Armegeddon etc.

The recordings became a struggling, with bandmembers in accidents and injuries aswell as personal tragedies. But Lechery did rise and the new album "In Fire" is an album that by far top the bands expectations. "In Fire" is much more varied than "Violator" and still it´s classic heavy metal at it´s best. The hole feeling is that the band and their music has grown several steps.

The album was mixed by Rickard Bengtsson and mastered at Platinum Mastering in Stockholm. "In Fire" is an album that is filled with pure heavy metal and if you´re in to some kind of heavy metal or hard rock, you´re gonna love it.

In early 2011 Kristian Svensson joined the band as a stand-in drummer for Robert Persson.
