Those of you, who like melodic Metal/Rock with Gothic elements,
the bands Nightwish and Within Temptation, ought to give
"Leaves' Eyes", a band from Southern Germany,
The band is dominated by the clear, beautiful voice of Norwegian
vocalist Liv Kristine, an overall powerful production, perfectly
played dreamy melodies and lyrics which are inspired by
Liv Kristine's home country, Norway, rather than by clichés.
Altough Leaves' Eyes is a quite new project, the musicians
are well experienced. Liv Kristine was a member of "Theatre
of Tragedy" and her musicians form the well-known band
With their debut album "Lovelorn" (released 2004)
the band have already delivered a masterpiece, which contains
not a weak track at all. My favourite songs on the album
are "Return to life" and "Norwegian Lovesong".
Their new album "Vinland Saga" is to be
released on 30th of May 2005.
The pre-released CD Single "Elegy" promises an
exquisite album to follow. The Single contains 6 tracks
and is good value for money, especially since the great
song "Senses Capture" will not to be found on
the album itself.
