LEP­ROUS

MA­LINA

Total Guitar - - MON­I­TOR -

Sit­ting at the epi­cen­tre of some of pro­gres­sive mu­sic’s most seis­mic tal­ents, from Tool and Muse into the realms of tech metal, Nor­we­gians Lep­rous are right­fully her­alded in prog cir­cles, gain­ing a higher pro­file on the back of 2015’s The Con­gre­ga­tion. While Ei­nar Sol­berg’s ef­fer­ves­cent vo­cals dom­i­nate the likes of Leashes, the rich mu­si­cal tex­tures com­ple­ment his tow­er­ing dis­play. Groove-in­spired hooks her­ald Stuck’s string laden-as­cent, a flurry of elec­tronic ac­tiv­ity on Mi­rage build slowly, while the frenzy of stac­cato notes on Coma are off­set by the tragic film sound­track of closer The Last Mile­stone.
