    Episode 76: Track by Track: Leprous - Aphelion

    This week, Dave and Hoggy dive into our first impressions of the new Dream Theater album, our nickname for the new Marillion album title, a new Neal Morse project and then go track by track on the new Leprous record, Aphelion.
    NOTE: This was recorded live, together in Dave's new apartment a week after he left quarantine and moved in. That's why it sounds like we recorded in a cave. Normal service will resume on the next show

Theautumnrecess ,

Great prog news from down under!

So glad I found this podcast! I’ve been looking for a good way to discover new progressive rock and metal but couldn’t find a good place to look. This podcast gives such a great perspective on progressive music without being snobby about the style. Definitely 5 stars! Thanks!!!
