Noisecreep is pleased to premiere 'The Leper,' a new song from the Very End's 'Mercy and Misery.' It's Swedish-influenced, melodic metal that'll make thunder roar in your ceiling and bolts of lightning shoot out your living room walls.

"'The Leper' is like a German thrash metal tank," singer Bjorn Goosses told Noisecreep, "an ultimately heavy mid-tempo groover, combined with a subtle Black Sabbath theme in the chorus guitars." Goosses' assessment of the song is dead on, and not just because he is biased and sings on it.

Goosses continued, "Lyric-wise, this song deals with an obvious dead-end road you still want to follow, even if you know it won't be for good, turning you into a kind of leprous outcast."
