about

From the coast of British Columbia, Canada, auburn-haired symphonic metal artist LEAH is drawing attention from all over the globe. Inspired by Celtic and world music influences such as Clannad and Loreena McKennitt to European symphonic and progressive metal, LEAH creates something magical and refreshing. Her debut self-released album "Of Earth & Angels" received international critical acclaim, landing her on "The Best Symphonic Metal Album" Metalstorm Awards for 2012.

International fans call her “The Metal-Enya”. From ethereal ballads to folk-tales, mysterious world instrumentation and operatic blast beats, LEAH’s music is a breath of fresh air among a sea of female-fronted rock.

LEAH has had success in gaining thousands of fans around the globe, strictly through her online presence and social media, despite never having done a tour.

“Otherworld” (EP) was released in 2013 [re-issued in 2014] and features Eric Peterson’s vocals [Testament/Dragonlord] on the ethereal metal track, “Dreamland”. “Otherworld” followed in the same steps as the debut, but took everything a step forward and gave us a hint on what’s to come in the future.

“Kings & Queens," the anticipated new album from LEAH is sure to be loved by fans of symphonic metal and female fronted rock. This album is powerful, beautiful and often dances on the edge of progressive. Most of all it’s hard not to be drawn into and enchanted by LEAH's diverse vocals.

Featuring musicians such as Timo Somers and Sander Zoer of Delain, and Barend Courbois of Blind Guardian and Vengeance, this 15-track masterpiece emerges as the heaviest of all her releases. Dabbling in worldly Celtic, middle eastern, and New-Age flavors, while lyrically laced with epic imagery of dystopias, fallen empires, spiritual warfare, love and destiny, this album proves to be very promising and is expected to be received by fans and critics as one of the top symphonic metal albums of the year.

Track Name: Enter the Highlands
Don't wait for my return
I'll enter the highlands

So lost! Souls taught
Souls lost! So caught

Deep, deep, ocean, deep
Silent souls, you do keep
Did you know, did you foresee?
Where did you go? Eternity...

Sweet aroma of soul incense
When mountains devour minds in a trance
Sweeter promises of deliverance
This poison in their veins
Perpetual death within their own chains

Don't wait for my return
I'll enter the highlands
These ancient stones are crying out
Breaking the silence

So lost! Souls taught
Souls lost! So caught

Always looking for the day
For the messenger
Always looking away
Into mortal exile

You will always leave them speechless and trembling
You will always shake the fear inside, so horrifying
You will always take them by surprise, in silence
Erasing history, and drowned into the sea...

So lost! Souls taught
Souls lost! So caught

Deep, deep, ocean, deep
Silent souls, you do keep
Did you know, did you foresee?
Where did you go? Eternity...
