Leaves Eyes Reveals New Album Details

England in the year 1066. The decisive battle near Stamford Bridge. Warriors fighting death, the grounds soaked in blood. Norway’s king Harald III, called Hardrada ("the hard ruler") lies dying. His whole life flashes before his eyes: cruel wars, fights over power, journeys to exotic worlds guiding to powerful women, emperors and kings falling into ruin. The last Viking King is dead - the Vikings’ age is over. Long live the Vikings.

"The Last Viking" is the 2020-monumental-piece from Leaves' Eyes. The setting of the symphonic metal masterpiece couldn’t be more tremendous. With their cult-albums "Vinland Saga" (2005) and "King Of Kings" (2015) they already turned Leif Erikssons discovery of America and the life of Norway’s first king into music. Now, Leaves' Eyes bring the Viking Sagas to their bombastic finale.

"The Last Viking" will be released on October 23 via AFM Records. The album was produced by Alexander Krull at Mastersound Studio.

The cover is an artwork masterpiece created by Stefan Heilemann, which perfectly fits to the collection of top-class Leaves' Eyes covers so far.

"The Last Viking" will be available on 2CD Digipak (incl. instrumental bonus CD), 2CD Digipak “Collector’s Edition” (incl. instrumental bonus CD, alternate cover artwork & hand signed autograph card), Ltd. Gtf. Vinyl (pinewood green, hazy orange - ltd. to 533 units each) and Ltd. Hardcover Artbook (exclusive cover, 30x30cm, 60 pages, incl. album, Viking Spirit DVD featuring the original film documentary about the growing Viking re-enactment scene of which Fronter Alex and the band is part of since many years, Studio Making Of, Official Videoclips, Soundtrack Bonus-CD & handsigned autograph card - limited to 1066 units.)

Doro To Stream Final Drive-In Concert

Doro Pesch is the first rock musician to stage a concert at drive-in cinemas for her fans. The Metal Queen's first show in June was attended by hundreds of thrilled fans in the city of Worms, Germany and watched by more than half a million (!) people worldwide via live stream.

After another successful show in Stuttgart, DORO invites her fans to Bühl on August 1st to her third and (for now) last drive-in cinema show. There, DORO will be rocking all of her famous hits such as "Für Immer," "Love Me In Black" and "All For Metal." Also on the setlist is her new hit-single "Brickwall."

Doro is full of anticipation: "Over the last few months, I really missed my band and fans. The drive-in show has been a real unique experience and career highlight for me. That's why I'm really looking forward to the final show on August 1st in Bühl. We'll celebrate together and have a great time. It feels so good to be rocking alongside with you again. Hopefully, we can soon enjoy normal shows again as well."

For this last drive-in cinema show of the tour, the queen of rock and metal will join forces with the streaming service airtango.live which will be streaming the gig from start to finish. For a fee of €5.99 the user will get access to the whole concert for a month, plus additional DORO content including greetings, behind-the-scenes clips and Doro videos. The streaming pre-order will be starting soon at www.airtango.live

Doro comments: "All the fans who can't be present at the show on August 1st in Bühl will have the chance to stream the gig from home."
