There’s something in the water out there in Scandinavia that makes prog metal so wild, fun, and thought-provoking, a la Ihsahn, SHINING, Enslaved, and up-and-comers Leprous. Leprous have had us captivated since the release of their third record Bilateral. We featured Leprous on our list of albums to look out for in 2013, and the good news is finally starting to come in.
There isn’t too much to tell right now, but the band have announced that their new album will be titled Coal and will see release on May 20th, 2013 in Europe and May 28th, 2013 in North America on InsideOut Records. For more information as it comes in, visit Leprous on Facebook.
