Leprous, Without Waves, Dissona, Polyptych

Wed., Sept. 17, 7 p.m.

Norwegian progressive-metal eccentrics Leprous are notoriously hard to classify, and their third full-length, Coal (Inside Out), does nothing to help. Lots of people first heard Leprous as a backing band for Ihsahn of Emperor (who guests on two tracks on Coal), where they acquitted themselves expertly, but that context deprives audiences of the full experience. When Leprous front man and keyboardist Einar Solberg gets the mike to himself, he’s breathtaking: he sings exclusively clean, enunciating every line with operatic precision and lovingly lingering on high notes that would make Jon Anderson from Yes cross his legs and wince. Coal is darker and moodier than its predecessor, Bilateral, sacrificing some of prog’s light-on-its-feet whimsy to produce a heavier, doomier sound. This gambit really pays off on the tracks that top nine minutes (especially album closer “Contaminate Me”), and even though the band’s approach is a little more straightforward this time out, it’s still low on predictability. Leprous have played one-off shows in the U.S. before, but this is their first proper stateside tour. —Monica Kendrick $15, $12 in advance
