October 1, 2016 will present Buffalonians with a unique opportunity, as Norwegian prog metallers, Leprous visit Waiting Room along with Earthside, Binary Code and Dissona. Leprous (InsideOut/Century Media) was originally the backing band for former Emperor frontman, Ihsahn. Now, they stand out in the prog scene, unleashing a sound that is both catchy and dark, while conveying a very mature and inspired personality on each track in their discography. They are currently touring North America, primarily in support of their latest album, The Congregation
