about

This 5-song Celtic-metal masterpiece from Canadian artist LEAH takes you from the stormy shores of an ancient era... to fantasy landscapes... to the battlefield of love and loss. Cinematic character vocals from metal god Eric Peterson (Testament/Dragonlord) leave you electrified in his wake with an "echo's breath, a romance death!" Otherworld is where the ethereal and the brutal collide.

released 31 October 2013

Track Name: Shores of Your Lies
Oh life goes by
Still these cruel winds blow
Eroding my life
Like a whispering ghost

No destination, and we’re hollowly following
Shipwrecked on the shores of your lies
All of these voices, tauntingly haunting me
So I’ll hold on to you for dear life

Oh take these heavy chains
Which bind my weary soul
Burn the words which hunt me down
They grip around my throat

No destination, and we’re hollowly following
Shipwrecked on the shores of your lies
All of these voices, tauntingly haunting me
So I’ll hold on to you for dear life

Oh life goes by
Still these cruel winds blow
Eroding my mind
Like a whispering ghost
Track Name: The Northern Edge
Here sunlight fades away
In time the lines dissipate

In this labyrinth of the dead
We call from the Northern Edge
Wage this war to the bitter end
Raise this flag for the Northern Edge

Here sunlight disappears
In time the lines intertwine
Here broken hearts shall be opened
This time my love is leaving forever

In this labyrinth of the dead
We call from the Northern Edge
Wage this war to the bitter end
Raise this flag for the Northern Edge

In this labyrinth of the dead
We befall and we ascend
Raise this flag on the Northern Edge
In this corner of the Northern Edge
Track Name: Surrounded
Come to the sea, wash the memories of war away
Lay your head down, ease the pain now, even in your dreams
It’s far from over, I can see the storm on the horizon
Like a little child, I weep over you, ‘till you come back to me

My heart is surrounded
I’ll lay my weapons down
This battle’s just beginning
Standing on this mountain
I will surrender now
Today I’m giving in

Bring your wounds, bring your broken blades and chronicles
Time to breathe, and time to leave again, making history complete
I know it’s far from over, I can see the storm on the horizon
But for a little while, let me memorize the last time I will see your face...

My heart is surrounded
I’ll lay my weapons down
This battle’s just beginning
Standing on this mountain
I will surrender now
Today I’m giving in

This heavy armor has been weighing you down
Skies growing somber and beckoning blood
Is there any hope for us beyond these walls
Bittersweet, this night shall be, in eternal stone

My heart is surrounded
I’ll lay my weapons down
This battle’s just beginning
Standing on this mountain
I will surrender now
Today I’m giving in to you
Track Name: Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep
When you waken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush

I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain

Gentle birds in circling flight
I am the soft star that shines at night
Oh do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die...

I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
Track Name: Dreamland (Feat. Eric Peterson)
In this dreamland, no one has to hide
I awaken and you are at my side
Then this warm summer breeze
Comes washing over me
A reverie for eternity...

Twisted in this spiral of our time...
Souls gripped in the confines of our minds...
Eternal labyrinth of the underworld...
Brings us to justice divine!
Riding the river of Archeron
No coin to recompense Charon
Here I die one thousand times
Here I wander now the shores of your lies...
In this dreamworld where the sun shines cold
Where blood runs much colder than snow
I am the Usurper between these two worlds
Now I am the King of this underworld!

Once upon a time when we were all wise, we were so strange
See the sunrise, hear the old lies, feel the clanging blades
Ancient stories, wisdom, glory, and dismay that day
It shall never be forgotten again

In this dreamland, no one has to hide
I awaken and you are at my side
Then this warm summer breeze
Comes washing over me
A reverie for eternity...

Flowing down this circular scroll
Till we enter the gates, of lamenting souls
Hold me at a distance as we're crossing paths
An echo's breath, a romance death!
In this afterworld, in the Caverns of Never!
No dreams forgotten, forgiven here...
Voices they call me, they taunt me, they haunt me!
Ceasing the torment, for a moment's mirror...
Will we see again the moon's pure light?
Will we hear the thunder, roar!
We shall sail upon the winds, of lamentation
Where the ice storms burn, and the fires blow!

Once upon a time when we were all wise, we were so strange
See the sunrise, hear the old lies, feel the clanging blades
Ancient stories, wisdom, glory, and dismay that day
It shall never be forgotten again

In this dreamland, no one has to hide
I awaken and you are at my side
Then this warm summer breeze
Comes washing over me
A reverie for eternity...
