Lyric Video For New Track "This Present Darkness" Posted By Leah

The symphonic metal artist Leah issued a lyric video for the new track "This Present Darkness" from her upcoming release "Kings & Queens." The album is set for release on January 30th in Europe and on February 3rd in North America through Inner Wound Recordings.

"Kings & Queens" features musicians such as Timo Somers and Sander Zoer of Delain and Barend Courbois of Blind Guardian and Vengeance. Dubbed the heaviest of all her releases, the album dabbles in worldly Celtic, middle eastern, and New-Age flavors, while lyrically laced with epic imagery of dystopias, fallen empires, spiritual warfare, love and destiny.

Leah commented on the new album: "Kings & Queens is an important album to me, as the songs cover a range of emotions, musical styles and lyrical themes. One theme in particular is the historical and metaphorical grip around our throats we feel from top-down agendas that threaten our freedoms. It seems to be a never-ending game of chess between those who demand power and those who would preserve freedom. It's the theme of every good fantasy book and film, and the message rings true for even our modern world. In addition, the the line-up and stellar musicianship of the guys who came on board this project heightened the sheer epicness and caliber of the music itself. This has been my most enjoyable and rewarding project to date."

The track list for "Kings & Queens" is:

1. Arcadia
2. Save the World
3. Angel Fell
4. Enter the Highlands
5. In the Palm of Your Hands
6. Alpha et Omega
7. Heart of Poison
