Interesting! I love some of their albums - not all of them. Their first two releases are long time favorites, but among their most recent output I've been only impressed by Pitfalls. Hope I'll enjoy the new one, their music has great potential for an engaging surround experience. Modern prog rock/metal that it's actually progressive and doesn't sound derivative, with a GREAT singer.

Incidentally, they are playing in my hometown in a couple of weeks.

They're a fantastic live band. I saw them at the Royal Albert Hall supporting Devin Townsend. Their set was far more enjoyable than Devin's!
 
Wow Leprous going surround! I wouldn’t have picked this a few years ago but I guess everyone is jumping on the Atmos train. I was a big fan up until around Malina when I started losing a little interest in their sound. I would love to see them revisit The Congregation with a surround mix. And yay for a dedicated Bluray and 5.1 mix!!
 
I have a couple of their albums, good prog band. I find the vocalist hit/miss (acquired taste, kinda like Geddy Lee). Easy to look past for the overall sum of their parts.

However, $69.95 USD [Amazon USA] is a lot for a surround mix when I consider the new PJ was only $25-30 USD. Granted, there's a smidge more value in the Leprous set but it's definitely more than I could see spending on them. It's doubtful there will be steep discounts unless they overproduce and have to liquidate stock sometime down the road.

These "earbook" editions by InsideOut tend to get a lot cheaper if you can wait, at least in Europe. I recently bought some editions of recent Devin Townsend, Yes and Kansas albums (released around 2020/21) with comparable content for less than 25 € each.

This will be my way into ownership of this release, discount bin or the used market. I'm already backed up on music awaiting my time. lol
