By D. Sourile on June 4, 2015
Format: Audio CD
Leprous is a band that is a marvel to me. They have all the talent and chops of other (often impressive) progressive metal bands who insist on following the "Dream Theater" formula, yet they choose to focus on songwriting and melody over all else. They blend progressive rock, math rock, metal, death metal, djent, avant-garde, jazz and frankly anything else they feel like until their music. The result is a captivating, unique, emotionally-charged piece of art whose melodies will stay with you all day and haunt your dreams at night.

First of all, before going into detail on the songs, I want to discuss the overall feel of this album. Tall Poppy Syndrome (first album) was just heavy to the nth degree. Bilateral was playful, fun, unpredictable and eclectic. Coal was stripped-down, "simple" and consistent in tone throughout, sorrowful and dripping with emotion. I knew this album would again change things up and it most definitely does - I could best describe it as a more synth-heavy, concise, devastating version of Coal with a sprinkle of the earlier works. It is the perfect mixture of all the previous albums' strengths - it has the melancholy and consistent feel throughout that Coal boasted, the occasional heaviness of TPS, and the pleasantly irregular song structures of Bilateral. The album is very layered - most of the songs build to a climax in slow steps of increasing intensity. There are less bone-crunching riffs than TPS but the intensity of that album is felt. Here's how this record unfolds:

1) The Price - This was the lead single and was a great one at that. The main riff immediately let's the listener know that they're in for a fun ride.

If you're a fan of Leprous' previous album, "Coal", you will definitely love "The Congregation".

If you're more of a "Bilateral" fan, you still might like it, just give it a chance to sink in.

New to Leprous? They are a progressive metal band out of Norway that got their start as Ihsahn's (of Emperor fame) live band. While their first two albums have all the hallmarks of the genre, with their 2013 release, "Coal", they moved to a softer, more melodic approach. "The Congregation" carries on with the stylistic shift and builds upon it. The result is a very carefully, and skillfully crafted ride. Give it a listen, let it digest, then give it another go.

I love Leprous. Hands down one of the best bands when you're looking for very creative, experimental metal.
This album continues the trend of the last 3. Although I don't think it's quite as ground-breaking as Bilateral, it's certainly fantastic from start to end. Highly recommended for metal heads looking for something a little different

Great album!!!! Great songwriting, excellent vocal melodies! I love this band they are so creative and so different from all the other so-called prog metal bands like Opeth. Congregation is deep and every song is good! Fav's are : The Flood, Lower.

What an amazing, amazing band. I steered cleared of this band for a while as the album covers look to be Black/Death metal (not being a fan of unclean vocals). Once the journey with Leperous began it was a life changing moment. They are considered to be progressive band, which they may well be, but they are one the the best bands to rise up in metal for along time. Give it a try you won't regret it. My personal favourite album has to be Bilateral, but all Leperous albums are out of this world.

Wow, what an album! Everything about Leprous is right on point with this offering. The dark, atmospheric sounds and avant garde writing is perfect, the vocals are beautiful, and every song has an amazing melody to it. Just the right amount of energy throughout. My favorite album of last year, and probably my favorite Leprous album period.

I was blown away by this album... they have a pretty unique sound and the vocalist is quite unique. At times they do remind me of the band Muse. Great album, nice unique off beat rock sound with a touch of jazz.
