Elina: ‘Dark Love Empress’ is one of my favourite songs to play live! It’s such a dynamic song with powerful lyrics and this combination gave a perfect canvas for creating a more delicate version of it. It felt very natural to play the piano arrangement as the song gives me so many visual images alongside the musical inspiration. This piano version brings out a whole different side of the song also vocally and that’s one of the reasons I love making acoustic versions of our songs.
Elina Siirala comments: “This acoustic version of ‘Fairer Than The Sun’ has something magical about it. The harp creates a peaceful and beautiful atmosphere that takes the listener straight into the world of Norse mythology. The natural instruments are combined with the lyrics that take inspiration from the Voluspa poem, the perfect combination for a mystical Leaves’ Eyes ballad!”
it is with very heavy hearts that we are forced to cancel our concert at the 20. CHRONICAL MOSHERS Open Air 2022 this year. Alexander Krull was tested positive for Corona, so we can’t come to the festival. Although we can’t play with Atrocity this year, we wish everybody a great festival with this fantastic line up and with a lot of good old friends from us.
