LEPER COLONY_cover221020

Leper Colony sure have made a splash in the scene with their thrash-infused death metal music which has the added authenticity of Marc Grewe’s vocals for this kind of music and Rogga Johansson outdoing himself by deviating from the expected Swedish sound and creating something that has timeless appeal and unlimited replay value. Metal Injection premiered the widely lauded album in full AT THIS LINK

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
Jon Skäre (Consumption) – Drums
