Four years after bringing “The Last Viking” to Valhalla with their previous opus, LEAVES’ EYESresurrect with “Myths Of Fate” to celebrate their 20th year of existence. With their ninth studio album under their belt, the Germany-based act consolidates their leading position in the symphonic metal universe. Powerful, epic and impressive – LEAVES’ EYES once again merge traditional metal genres by fusing elements of folk, gothic, and classical music into a captivating sonic masterpiece.

With “Myths Of Fate”, the band once again set sails for new winds that definitely blow from the harsh shallows of the symphonic metal genre. The fantastic world of legends from Norse and Eastern European mythology is the setting for monumental entertainment. “The early Middle Ages were a fascinating time of change. Some of these innovations have left their mark around the globe and continue to impact our modern world”, tells band mastermind and singer Alex Krull. 

LEAVES’ EYES open up a world of magical places, spellbound weapons or supernatural creatures. With the first, previously-released single and album opening track “Forged By Fire”, they raised the magic sword of Tyrfing. In a bombastic double bass blaze, they tell from a deadly weapon crafted and cursed by dwarves to bring misery over its bearers. “These legends always reflected the real-life horrors of those who told them, making them even relatable to modern events of wars and fights”,Alex says. Now, LEAVES’ EYES have unleashed a music video for their second single, the mediaeval hymn “Realm Of Dark Waves”, that pulls us down into ocean’s desolate depths of Rán, the Goddess of the Sea. This neck-breaker about the sea maiden wife of Ægir is lyrically linked to other LEAVES’ EYES hit classics about maritime gods, like “Njord” or “Nine Wave Maidens”, rounding off the artist’s entire oeuvre!

In support of LEAVES’ EYES’ forthcoming opus, the band produced a total of five music videos with Mastersound Entertainment. Filmed on impressive locations in Iceland, Germany and Poland, they bring the myths captivatingly to the screen. Magic creatures, great battles and enchanting warrior queens come to live!
