Going to any live show is a big event, especially when it’s a band you’ve admired and followed for a long time. I’m not overly hard to please, but a lot of acts haven’t lived up to my expectations when they perform. They seem lackadaisical, not interacting with the crowd, or maybe they’re hyped but their music sucks ass. Unfortunately, that’s happened more than I care to remember.
An interview with Norway’s progressive metal band Leprous. The entire band was kind enough to sit down with FourteenG, on their stop in Chicago. Just part of a mini North American tour, right off the heels of their slot on this year’s ProgPower. Dare we call them avant garde but as their album covers suggest, each is a bottled time capsule of their progression as seasoned musicians. So, why haven’t we heard more of them?! Maybe after this little stint of the U.S., the secret will be out and they won’t be our underground cult favorite anymore. Wait… maybe that’s a good thing! Without further ado, here’s a fun “getting to know you” piece of prog’s unlikely likely rock stars.
