Like one of the other reviewers, I also saw Leprous supporting Haken. Unlike that reviewer, however, I was already aware of Leprous and knew what to expect, at least in terms of a set list. As a final note on this aspect, Leprous and Haken were joined by Maschine (all bands signed to Inside Out label), and while the three bands are more or less proggy to differing extents, they each offer something very different. Variety being the spice of life and all that.

Leprous hail from Norway and offer a powerful and heavy spin on prog, laced with aspects of djent. There's a fair bit of those heavy, rhythmic guitar and bass punctuating throughout Coal. When they reproduce it live, they're one of the tightest bands I've seen. This heavy, rhythmic approach is not to the detriment of a damn good tune, however. The vocal performance on Coal stands out and is much smoother than on previous Leprous offerings. The closing section of `Vow' for example, sees an a capella section which works wonderfully. Vocals soar again in `The Valley', an absolute powerhouse of a track which uses the heavy rhythms superbly.

There are quieter moments on Coal; it's not all one-paced. But Leprous are progressive in that they will challenge their own sound and push their boundaries. They will not - at least not on available evidence - provide you with a noodly guitar and keyboard extravaganza. Bet they could, though, if they really wanted to.

More dark and prog than the previous releases, with great atmospheres. TOP album in this 2013, with Amorphis, Magnus Karlsson and Orphaned Land.

I saw Leprous recently supporting Haken and bought this Album to listen to on the tube on the way to the gig. I have to say, the vocals and drumming are very good indeed, however, I'm afraid to say, all the songs sounded so similar they all just seem meld into one. A bit of light and shade wouldn't go a miss. There are some nice proggy touches here and there but not enough to capture my imagination in the way their peers do. Also if you like a nice lead guitar solo as I do, this is not one for you. Sorry guys!

A great album - hadn't heard Leprous before and downloaded it before we went to see them live with Haken. The vocalist's style is amazing and the whole album exceeded expectations.
