Biography

Notodden, Norway (2001 – present)

Leprous is a young, five piece band hailing from the metal town of Notodden, Norway, home of bands such as Emperor, Zyklon, Ihsahn, Peccatum, and many more.

Since Leprous was founded in 2001, they’ve gone through a few changes in the line-up, and now consists of Einar Solberg (synth/vocals), Tor Oddmund Suhrke (guitar), Rein Blomquist (bass), Øystein Landsverk (guitar) and Tobias Ørnes Andersen (drums), with their ages ranging from 19 to 24 years.

The young quintet have already made themselves visible on the Norwegian prog- and metal scene, and twice the band has made the finals in the Norwegian Rock Championship. Besides Leprous, the guys in Leprous are currently working as a session band of solo artist “Ihsahn”, also known as the front figure of the legendary black metal band Emperor.

“This band sounds like nothing else out there, and will probably reach far …”
Yngve M. Jacobsen - www.heavymetal.no

In August 2008, Leprous recorded their debut album “Tall Poppy Syndrome”. As a result they caught the eye of several record companies, and ended up signing with the American label Sensory Records for a May 2009 release.

Prior to “Tall Poppy Syndrome”, Leprous have recorded two demos which both received great accolades from the worldwide media, with the demo (self-financed full length album) “Aeolia” among other great reviews received a perfect 10 out of 10 score from the Norwegian webzine www.metal-norge.no. The band at that point decided to hold off on the search for a label to release their albums though, as they knew that they could create even better songs.
