Leaves's Eyes Enter The Studio

LEAVES' EYES frontwoman Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull has posted the following message at the band's MySpace page:

"Dear Friends & Fans,

It's already a week since we played our last show for this year in Krefeld, Germany, with BLIND GUARDIAN, and now we're back in the studio, composing songs for our third album.

It was very, very nice to meet "the Guardians" again as we became close friends at our North-American tour earlier this year. Unfortunately I was feverish, struggling with the flu, however pain-killers are good in such a situation. The show has to go on, and yes, it was a good one.

Surprise: my sister Carmen Elise is having her vocals recorded for the next MIDNATTSOL album. It's good to have my sister around at our studio.

Today my son and I been busy packing 17 boxes of clothes and toys which will be sent to children living on the streets or in children's homes in Romania. If you can help somebody in any possible way - do it, and share your luck, love, fortune and happiness with other people!

Here's some love from me to you,

Liv."

Leaves' Eyes Part Ways With Bassist And Drummer

LEAVES' EYES — the German/Norwegian band formed by ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY singer Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull and members of ATROCITY (who are fronted by Liv's husband Alexander Krull) — has issued the following update:

"LEAVES' EYES played their last show of the year together with BLIND GUARDIAN and ASTRAL DOORS in the Krefeld Hockeystadium in front of 3,000 people. Moreover, this was the final concert of LEAVES' EYES with bass player Chris Lukhaup and drummer Moritz Neuner; Chris Lukhaup had to leave the band due to personal reasons and Moritz Neuner is taking another turn in his working career. The band wishes them both all the best in the future. At the moment LEAVES' EYES is checking out new musicians — if you are interested and a killer bassist or drummer, please contact info@mastersoundentertainment.de."

We drove through the mountains, visited the old town of Stavanger, moreover, we did a lot of interviews, also with my family members.

"Most of the material will be presented on our upcoming DVD. However, it was also very important to gather nature shots for our special show at the Metal Female Voices Fest in Wieze, Belgium.

Leaves' Eyes, Blind Guardian Live Report & Photos

It was a surprisingly warm but torrential first December day. This evening I made an extra effort to get to Worcester on time because Leaves' Eyes were opening. I've been an ardent admirer of Liv Kristine since, naturally, her Theatre Of Tragedy days and I'll always regret not seeing her with them. Several years ago, she and her former mates were accumulating hordes of devoted fans around Europe, but after Liv was gone the fairytale came to an abrupt stop and the band pretty much fell into oblivion. Luckily, Liv didn't let her talent go unused and formed a new band with all of Atrocity's members.

The show started at 9 as there were only two bands tonight. By that time the Palladium was full of beaming and mostly teenage fans. As usual, I was sceptical about the local reception, dreading Leaves' Eyes wouldn't get half of the recognition they deserve as they are not necessarily well known around here, at least for now. I'm glad to report that my fears were banished as the audience quickly warmed up to their sound and even though there were no sing-alongs, the front rows really got into it. But then again, who can resist the utterly charming Liv Kristine? Clad in a fetching red dress topped with a corset (think album cover attire), her serene and mesmerizing voice paired with Atrocity's heavy guitars brought about an emotional, almost intimate atmosphere. You could see she was sincerely into the lyrics, trying to convey the feeling through her theatrically expressive face and gestures. More...
