(Andy Synn takes a walk on the weird side with the debut album from Belarus’s Leprethere)
Right from the start, Tarnished Passion is not an easy album to pin down.
The duo who make up the band themselves refer to their sound as a mix of Dissonant Death Metal and Mathcore, and both those elements are certainly present.
But I’ve also seen them referred to as Progressive Metalcore, Technical Death Metal, and even Djent (though that one is really making a mountain out of the proverbial molehill in my opinion) by various different sources, so there seems to be some confusion about how to classify exactly what it is that Leprethere actually do.
And I can’t help but think that’s how they like it.
