Leprous – The Congregation

I’m such a big fan of the Norwegian progressive band Leprous! I pre-ordered their latest album, The Congregation, and I couldn’t be happier that I did.
I’m not a reviewer and I don’t pretend to be one, I just want to share with you some of the characteristics I love about this band and this album because I think if you like my music you might like it as well 🙂 So here we go:

  • The music is progressive and unpredictable, but not for the sake of showing of technical skill; it’s always in function of the song.
  • It’s also incredibly melodic, and has some marvelous choruses and hooks without it being overly cheesy.
  • The songs have a beautiful hint of drama and tension to them.
  • Musicianship and production are top notch!
  • Einar’s vocals are OUTSTANDING; there’s so much variation and emotion to them.

Check out their first videoclip here below, you can order this brilliant album from InsideOut.

    I Like it, the voice reminds me to Morten Harket from A-ha, then have to be from Norway!
