LEPROUS, the much acclaimed prog metal newcomer-sensations from Norway, are embarking on a headlining tour dubbed “European Progressive Assault” this week, with support coming from Sweden’s Loch Vostok (www.lochvostok.com), Andorra’s Persefone (www.persefone.com) and Norway’s Ørkenkjøtt (www.facebook.com/orkenkjott).
In preparation for this journey, LEPROUS have recently shot some really entertaining videos giving some useful information and also their very random thoughts about every city visited on this extensive tour. Here is an example for the Oslo show, which already happened this past weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
