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.
Einar Solberg – Lead Vocal, Synth
Tor Oddmund Suhrke – Guitar
Øystein Landsverk – Guitar
Baard Kolstad – Drums
Supporting Leprous, are New England prog rockers, Earthside, and although they prefer to refer to their genre as “cinematic rock”, they are still a highly regarded powerhouse in the realm of progressive music. Furthermore, Binary Code from New Jersey are bringing their own brand of progressive metal to the table, as are Dissona from Chicago, Illinois.
All 4 of these bands gracing Waiting Room, are packed with soaring clean vocals, beautifully layered, intricate guitars and drums, and a masterful grasp on progressive music. If you don’t know any of these bands, but you’re a fan of Opeth, Cynic, Three, High On Fire, Unexpect, Sigh, Fates Warning, Symphony X, Dark Tranquillity, 12 Foot Ninja, Ne Obliviscaris or even Black Crown Initiate, treat yourself to this show. You won’t be disappointed!
