Well, I can't think of a whole lot to say about this one. With a name like Lepus and extensive use of soundclips from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", this is obviously not a band that takes itself really seriously. This is very basic NWOBHM stuff with some decent riffing behind it and some rather impressive leads considering this was recorded live in the studio. The vocals are OK, not too bad, but nothing to get excited about. And they top it off with a cover of Witchfinder General's "Burning A Sinner". I can't say I really like this, because it doesn't really grab me, but it isn't bad at all. I don't like bands with goofy names, but I do like old-school heavy metal. This band shows promise, and if they get serious about their music (and change their name to something halfway decent) they could produce something worth hearing. But as of this demo, I have to say that promise is all we have here. Their hearts are in the right place, and they've got chops, but their approach is all wrong.
