Fall of the Leafe plays guitar driven, progressive atmospheric rock with a metallic edge. The band reserves the right to blend in any styles and influences without prior notice.

It was mastered by Svante Forsback at Charmakers, one of the top studios in Finland. Fall of the Leafe's "Aerolithe" will be released August 20th.

Featuring two female vocalists the overall vocal approach is still of the low-end male growl, and the band incorporate multiple other styles into their gloomy doom metal, produced by Risto Ylonen, and mastered by Svante Forsback on Charmakers. Terhen's "Eyes Unfolded" will be released August 20th.
