About LEAVES’ EYES
For more than a decade now, LEAVES’ EYES have been setting world history to music and undeniably, by doing so, have raced to the top of the symphonic metal tree.
With their new monumental epic “King Of Kings”, the band now further justifies their leading position as a compass in the genre and re-awakes the thousand-year legend of Norway’s first king, ‘Harald Fairhair’, in the process. Again this band prove their amazing talent of capturing sagas and legends of the past and truly making them come alive in the here and now. Welcome the Vikings!
About OMNIUM GATHERUM
Hailing from Finland, OMNIUM GATHRUM is a band playing fierce death metal with breathtaking melodies andprogressive originality for people in the metal field looking for something different that still is catchy. A band that truly walks it’s own path proudly and shows some new exciting sides on identifiable character. A band of many directions and styles, some of them clearly visible while others were more unseen – namely working and keeping it all together under the moniker of melodic life-and-death metal and bastardizing it with various influences.
