Leprous

Profile:
Avant-garde rock band from Notodden, Norway. The group was founded in 2001 by singer and keyboardist Einar Solberg and guitarist Tor Oddmund Suhrke.

After releasing two demos with relatively unstable lineups, the band released their first studio album, Tall Poppy Syndrome, in 2009, which mixed progressive metal and progressive rock syles, but encompasses a wide array of influences and sounds. They subsequently gained prominence as the live backing band of Ihsahn (who is Solberg's brother-in-law), who, in turn, contributed on several Leprous records as guest singer or producer. In 2011 Leprous released Bilateral, followed two years later with Coal, which defines a new experimental direction for the band, developed with The Congregation (2015). In 2017 Leprous took a more rock-oriented and less metal approach with Malina (2017), their first record not to feature harsh vocals. Two years later they released Pitfalls, more electronic/symphonic-oriented.
