Elina & Alex of Leaves Eyes discussed touring and Fires In The North.



After two years of absence from the North American stages, Leaves Eyes returns as part of a tour supporting Sonata Arctica. Their visit also marks a new era in the band’s history as it presented us with their new vocalist Elina Siirala who joined the band early this year, besides Elina, Leaves Eyes also brought with them new songs as their new EP Fires In The North was just released a few months ago. 

Leaves Eyes always have incorporated Nordic and Viking themes to their music and their stage show (remember the Viking ship at Wacken and Metal Female Voices), and now they have a crafty and easy to carry stage piece since the Viking ship and production can’t be carried across the ocean for the North American tour, we got Alex (singer of Leaves Eyes) coming mid-show on a Viking Attire and swinging sword as he sings about nordic distant lands.

It was exciting and interesting to have Leaves Eyes back in Mesa, AZ after two years and even better at a bigger venue and with a new vocalist, their show was intense and the reception of the crowd was really positive. It was interesting to see that their set list was filled with current material rather than a mix or a classic set list. The crowd got to experienced songs like; Halvdan the Black, My Destiny, The Waking Eye, Swords in Rock, Edge of Steel, Fires in the North, To France, and Blazing Waters. It was a good set and we definitely are looking much forward to see Leaves Eyes making their first-time appearance at Marquee Theater in Tempe, AZ next May when they return with Battle Beast and Sabaton.

Before their show in Mesa, AZ we talked with Alex and Elina about the tour, Fires In The North and an update on what is going on with Atrocity.
