Norwegian Leprous is a Norwegian progressive metal band. The musicians have previously made a name for themselves by repeatedly supporting their famous compatriot Ihsahn (Emperor) in the studio and on stage. Leprous was formed in 2001 in the picturesque region of Telemark. Since the beginning, vocalist Einar Solberg and guitarist Tor Oddmund Suhrke have decided the musical face of the group. Since 2014 they have been supported by Baard Kolstad known from Borknagar or from his collaboration with Gaahl. The band's musicians are specialists in their craft, incredibly well-versed in various genres, so it is no surprise that the prog-metal core of Leprous' songs is quite often enriched with alternative and progressive rock, pop, symphonic, string or electronic inserts.
