LEPROUS, the up ‘n’ coming Norwegian progressive/avantgarde metal sensation, are soon to release their much anticipated third album and InsideOutMusic debut release “Bilateral” on August 22nd, 2011 in Europe and August 23rd, 2011 in North America.

In co-operation with www.metalsucks.net, LEPROUS are now offering a streaming preview of the album-song “Thorn”, which features a guest-vocal appearance by Ihsahn (formerly of Emperor): http://www.metalsucks.net/2011/08/02/exclusive-premiere-leprous-thorn-feat-ihsahn
to check out the song!

Ihsahn has also recorded and co-produced “Bilateral” and has the following to add about the upcoming LEPROUS release: "It's often hard to get excited when listening to an album when you've been heavily involved in the recording and production. Not this time. I'm a fan!"

This talented young band (with members all in their early 20’s) had previously launched the albumn’s first promo song “Restless” via their Facebook profile: Just visit http://www.facebook.com/leprousband and click on the “like” button to be able to check out the song!

The complete tracklisting for “Bilateral” reads as follows:

Leprous – “Bilateral”
1. Bilateral
2. Forced Entry
3. Restless
4. Thorn
5. Mb. Indifferentia
6. Waste Of Air
7. Mediocrity Wins
8. Cryptogenic Desires
9. Acquired Taste
10. Painful Detour

“Bilateral” features outstanding cover artwork by surrealistic American artist Jeff Jordan (www.jeffjordanart.com), known for his stunning work for The Mars Volta, and was
skillfully mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street
(Opeth, Pain Of Salvation, Devin Townsend, Symphony X, etc.).

The album is set to musically re-define what it means to be
progressive rock and / or metal, both for the devotees of the genre and the metal fans looking on from a safe distance. Previously, LEPROUS have launched some quite entertaining studio webisodes online which will give you a good impression of the band’s work when recording “Bilateral”. View them here:
