Leper - End Progress (2009)

From last.fm:

"Leper is a Canadian anarchist ska-crust band on Creepcore Records who often cover topics such as the vagrant life, the KKK, and homelessness all in a unique style blending oppressively slow reggae grooves with apocalytpic, world’s end visions and dark sonic brutality. Their myspace: www.myspace.com/lepercreepcore"

Back for popular demand, here is................................ LEPER! No, no really requested this or whatever but their other album I uploaded, Embarrassed To Be Human, has gotten a lot of hits so I decided to throw their more acclaimed album up here. For those of you who don't know, Leper has a very unique sound to them. They play a very blackened form of crust who incorporate ska hooks. As lame as this sounds it's really unique and they do hell of a good job at it too. Their lyrics tend to focus on anarchist views targeting such things as consumerism, capitalism, racism, and animal liberation. I can't remember it off the top of my head but one of their song even dictates being an animal going through the slaughter process. Listening to that track makes me feel good that I don't participate in the supporting in the cold meat industry. In my personal opinion, I enjoyed Embarrassed To Be Human a lot more than End Progress just because there was a shit ton of more material on that album but a lot of people will agree this is the better album. Leper fans should have this album by now and if you don't well here it is! Enjoy. :3


  1. They sound a bit weird. I don't get used to that crust and ska mix although they are quite original!


  2. Yeah, it's definitely something you don't listen to everyday. As of right now they've formed the crustgrind band Mutiny, also thrown up on my blog. Thanks for the feedback!
