RockmusicRaider Review - Leprous - Malina - Album Cover2017 will be a good year for Progressive and Alternative Rock and Metal. And I have a feeling that some of them players will end up on the 2017 Top 10 Records list. Increased sophistication seems to be the game these days too. Away from heavy-handed djent-ism to more refined shores. So much so that some bands lose their metal chops and reinvent themselves in pop and some tastier versions of rock. The last example is the late To The Bone from Steven Wilson. And no, it did not go pop, but sports some sort of Progressive Rock of the poppy kind. Not bad at all.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Leprous - The Congregation - Album CoverBoy, this is Scandinavian month @ RockmusicRaider – for sure. And with some more Progressive Metal to boot. This time we are going deep down into the cold Northern fjords. The Norwegian Progressive Rock and Metal band Leprous have been on a roll over these past years. They churned out album after album rating highly with fans on the #metal Richter scale. Their fourth studio album The Congregation serves us with a real tough cookie indeed. The whole concoction is – in style, not content – not unlike the Zierler début and – in part – somewhat reminiscent of Guilt Machine with their currently sole record.  Got hooked?
