While there has been lots of controversy surrounding Leaves' Eyes of late, we here at Femetalism feel somewhat flabbergasted and disgusted by the unnecessary insults and name calling that their new vocalist Elina Siirala has endured. We have followed Elina for some time now with her band enkElination (Angel Nation) and having seen her perform live numerous times can vouch for her awesome credentials. As for Leaves' Eyes, while I cannot deny they have had a long and successful career and that there music was good, I didn't have much of their music and I managed to miss them perform numerous times. I watched the new video expecting to be neither blown away nor offended, and I have to say that the video for Edge of Steel is fabulous and I am genuinely looking forward to hearing more from them and seeing how they move forward together as a band.
If you haven't heard the track yet, check out the video and for goodness sake, if you are not happy about the new vocalist, please go listen to their previous albums with Liv instead of the new stuff and stop proclaiming to be a fan of the band. The band is made up of more than one person, not one person alone can make a whole band. Liv is likely to move onto new and exciting projects of her own and so maybe concentrate on supporting that instead of dissing the band.
Follow Leaves' Eyes on:
