Out Now

(AFM)

 

This heady fusion of symphonic and battle metal is about as good as it gets.

Lead single Jomsburg hinted as something very special from Leaves Eyes as dual vocalists Elina Siirala and Alexander Krull traded clean notes and dirty growls to truly encapsulate an era of invasion and conflict.

Follow-up Across The Sea developed the theme and if Sign Of The Dragonhead hardly screams original content then it’s a compelling story of bravery, ambition and indiscriminate blood spilling wrapped up in barbed riffs and beautifully conceived melody.

Could this be lucky seven for a band with its Eyes on the prize?
