And now the review :
First of all i have to mention that Leaves' Eyes have a new singer!
On April 15, 2016, the band announced that they had parted ways with lead-vocalist Liv Kristine. They also revealed that she would be replaced by the Finnish singer Elina Siirala of EnkElination.
On the 18 April, Siirala made her debut with the band at the Hammersonic festival in Jakarta.
So this Ep comes with a new voice for Leaves' Eyes.
We all admit that Liv Kristine has a great voice but after she left the band Leaves' Eyes had to move on and they found in my opinion an amazing singer , Elina Siirala.
Elina Siirala is a Finnish soprano and vocal coach.
I will not make comparisons between the two singers because it is too early to judge Elina Siirala but my first impressions of her voice are more than good.
Produced by Alexander Krull at Mastersound Studio.
The title track is a brand new song, featured in both a regular and an acoustic version.
In addition, the EP includes three songs from the band's latest album "King Of Kings" in new versions (feat. Elina on vocals).
The cover artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann.
A good song, good melodies and seems that Elina Siirala's voice fits perfect with Leaves's Eyes so we expect more good things from them in the future!
