Leaves' Eyes Reports On Film Shoot In Norway

Liv Kristine and Alex Krull just returned from a Leaves' Eyes film shooting in Norway. Liv commented: "We travelled with our crew along the incredibly interesting and breath-taking west coast of Norway. Our journey started in Stavanger, my hometown. We filmed in sunny and rainy weather, which really shows the harsh climate of this region. We went through the fjords by boat and spent hours at the North Sea catching waves. 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 up-coming DVD, however, it was also very important to gather nature shots for our special show at the Metal Female Voices Fest in Wieze, Belgium 20 October 2007. We would like the audience to see that we are very close to nature and that Norway is part of Leaves' Eyes. A warm thank you to hard-working Stefan Liebhauser (The Day After) and Gunnar Sauermann (Metal Hammer) who did a fantastic job, fixing this visually."

:eaves' Eyes has announced only a few more shows this year, with major touring (of the US) next year with King Diamond, Kreator and Cellador. The latest Leaves' Eyes tour dates follow: More...

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...

The EP will be released for the price of a single at the end of April/beginning of May 2006 in connection with the band's upcoming tours, which includes dates througout Europe, USA, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand.

The tracks included on the EP are: "Legend Land", "Skraelings", "Viking's Word", "The Crossing" and "Lyset".

This is our way of saying thank you to our fans and their great support. The past tours were amazing! As we will tour a lot this year it will take a while until we have finished our next full-length album. These five powerful and atmospheric tracks developed out of a couple of new brilliant ideas."

Vocalist Liv Kristine adds: "The new songs sound fantastic. They are very strong. We had a wonderful time continuing our work with the Viking concept and making further discoveries."
