Thrashy death metal band LEPER COLONY formed by MORGOTH, PAGANIZER members

LEPER COLONY_cover221020

This one reeks of old school death metal glory. Legendary vocalist Marc Grewe of Morgoth fame teams up with Rogga Johansson of Paganizer who’s able to create a form of thrashy death metal that’s more rooted in the classic Floridian sound than anything that you might expect. Fans of bands like DeathSlayerMorgothUnleashedMassacre, etc. should lap this up. You can find two songs streaming on Bandcamp HERE

Leper Colony (Germany) – Self Titled (Death Metal)

Genre – Death Metal 
Release Date – January 13th, 2023
Record Label – Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of – Death, Morgoth, Asphyx, Pestilence, Slayer, Massacre, Cancer

Leper Colony is the new death metal band involving Marc Grewe (ex-Morgoth, Insidious Disease) and Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Revolting) and they’ve done their best to ensure that the music has all the undiluted appeal of the classic albums of DeathMassacreMorgoth and the like. This is an absolute riff-fest, with every song adding a different dimension of that classic sound which is imbued with that irresistible thrash fervour. Rogga Johansson may have written his most diverse album and on his part, Marc Grewe has given a spirited performance with a lot of variation in this delivery. Both of them have made sure that despite being rooted in the old school sound, the music here is entertaining enough to not only satiate the nostalgic audience but also find appeal among the newer death metal listeners. This is an interesting take on the style that’s more than just imitation and it doesn’t hurt that it’s incredibly catchy while being structured at the same time. Fans of thrashy, pulsating, old school death metal shouldn’t pass up on this under any circumstances.

Line up –
Marc Grewe (ex-Morgoth, Insidious Disease) – Vocals
Rogga Johansson (Paganizer) – Guitars, Bass
