Leaves' Eyes - Unveil New Album Artwork, Tracklist And More

The new Leaves' Eyes album is upon us and it's also the first with new vocalist Elina Siirala, now that original singer Liv Kristine is out of the band, amidst some drama. The band has revealed the title, artwork, tracklist and street date of the new offering. It's titled Sign Of The Dragonhead and it will drop January 12th 2018. Feast your eyes on the cover artwork done by Stefan Heilemann (Lindemann, Epica, Kamelot) below.

Album description: "The hearts of symphonic metal fans will beat faster: Epic metal hymns, cracking rock songs, great choirs, powerful classical music, a top notch production and magic melodies - on top of it all Elina's outstanding voice. The energy of the latest shows and tours (a.o. with Sabaton in North America) were taken directly into the music and studio recordings! The biggest Leaves' Eyes record to date. The London Voices choirs of 'Lord of The Rings' and 'Stars Wars' are back again, as well as the classical ensemble of Victor Smolski from Belarus and various folk, classical and percussion musicians. Once more Leaves' Eyes take the listener into the world of Norse Mythology and Viking Sagas. The dragon ship sets sail to new horizons! Full speed ahead!"

The record was produced by Alexander Krull at Mastersound Studio.

It seems a bit odd to me that, with Liv's departure from the band, they are persisting with Viking Saga concepts, especially as Liv wrote most of the lyrics. I was in two minds about Meredead and SotN because on the one hand, they had broken free of this mold but musically they were weaker than what had gone before and Kings was a return to form.

Now they have Elina in the ranks, maybe they could focus on material from Finnish folk-lore? You only have to peruse a list of Sibelius' tone poems to realise just how rich and fascinating this is! Just a thought.

Anyway, off topic... what do any of you make of this??

First gig was Manowar (loincloths 'n' all), Bristol Colston Hall in March 1983, on the 'Hail to England' tour. Tickets were £3.75, 300 in the audience, Mercyful Fate never showed, but my hearing still got seriously trashed..

What did I make of this? I went to their FB page, where the same announcement is and where a bunch of people are figuratively hyperventilating.
Then I went to Sharon page, where she left a handful of cryptic messages.

Could be anything from new album to death and destruction.
Life is all the pain we endeavour.

I kinda don't care much about Leaves' Eyes anymore. Even the last albums with Liv were decreasing in quality.
