If you like prog metal you’re in for a veritable treat here with Leprous’ blistering new song and video, “Slave,” which will be on their forthcoming album to be released later this year. I’m not a huge fan of prog myself, but this one really grabbed me. It just feels like an adventurous and epic metal song, not a bunch of random time changes and abstract parts that don’t seem to fit in well, etc., which is what I hate about most prog. If MUSE were a metal band, this is what they’d sound like, no doubt. I look forward to hearing the whole album. If this song is any indication, it’s going to be mind-blowing.
