about

Some have described LEAH as the "ENYA of heavy metal," and others describe LEAH's music as "Loreena McKennitt meets Delain." One thing is for sure: LEAH's voice will play the strings of the most brutal of hearts, causing them to melt into submission. From ethereal ballads to folk-tales, mysterious world instrumentation, and operatic blast beats, LEAH's debut album is not to be forgotten. For many, she has become the best music discovery of 2012, listed alongside bands such as Delain, Xandria, and Epica.

LEAH released her debut independent album, "Of Earth & Angels" out of Vancouver, BC in 2012. What followed in the months after was a slew of raving reviews, tweets and blogs, hundreds of plays on multiple internet radio stations, online magazine features, interviews, downloads, and a huge following from all over the globe. LEAH succeeded in her quest to fuse together her influences... and the world loved it!

LEAH has no intention of stopping now. More inspired than ever, LEAH is moving forward with plans for future albums and appearances, digging deeper and carving a more distinct path.

LEAH has only begun to make her mark; the world is taking notice.

Track Name: Prisoner
Spiral is the only thing I see when I’m with you
Twisted in the midst, I cannot turn myself from you

Tangled so deep, I can’t get out
Cannot sleep, trapped and bound

I am a prisoner within my own mind
I am confined to your tower, there I’m entwined

I want to give in…

Spiral is the only thing I dream when I’m with you
Twisted in a vision, can’t turn images from you

Tangled so deep, I can’t get out
Cannot sleep, I’m trapped and bound

I am a prisoner within my own mind
I am confined to your tower, there I’m entwined

I want to give in…
Track Name: Remember
Flashes before my eyes, seconds flying by
Impression familiar, fleeting apparition

Oh, Oh

Minutes and hours bound together, distance intensifies
Nothing in my memory, telling me how or why

Remember, Remember...

Seconds dividing, and I collide
Is it my imagination, staring into my mind

Oh, Oh

Cryptic enticement, imperceptible
A hidden recollection, thought I'd seen it all

Remember, Remember...

I need to complete this memory
I'm reaching so deep, I cannot breath

Remember...
Track Name: Old World
Names upon a stone, standing still
They scream in dark light, hollow sounds
Wicked games they played in the winter chill
And pierced the city walls tonight

In this old world, time is standing still

Chains around a chair, ring on the floor
Burned to the ground, bright as dawn
Riches betrayed, knowledge decayed
And breeched the royal halls, tonight

In this old world, time is standing still

Once upon a time, in a distant story
Vanishing faces one by one
Marching to the drum of a little revenge
And never to be seen when the time has come

In this old world, time is standing still
Track Name: I Fade
I fade, as the moon's shade overturns the day, I fade.
I hate, as the sun's flame breathes life and decay, I fade.
In the dance of the fading flame
(you will light a candle for me)
In the dance of the fading flame
(you will burn a candle for me)
I rave, as my own brain, turns pure to profane, I rave
I pray, as this life decay slips slowly away, I pray
In the dance of the fading flame
(you will light a candle for me)
In the dance of the fading flame
(you will burn a candle for me)
I fade...
Track Name: Ex Cathedra
Ecce consessus
Ecce paradisus
Prodi ex cathedra
Exercitus angelorum

Seraphim in all their splendor, I can see them ,oh
Seraphim, the burning wonders of the vision, oh

Aetheria creatura
Gladius veritatis
Occide diabolum
Virtute Dei

Seraphim in all their splendor, I can see them, oh
Seraphim, the burning wonders of the vision, oh

Stipendia enim peccati mors

Seraphim in all their splendor, I can see them, oh
Seraphim, the burning wonders of the vision, oh
Track Name: Ocean
Ocean, you say my name so sweetly
Ocean, you wait so patiently

Deep sea, you take me away completely
Deep sea, you serenade my pain, so gently

Once in a lifetime, you’re lucky if you find love
You will find out what you’re really made of

Ocean, you say my name so sweetly
Ocean, you wait so patiently
Track Name: A Thousand Years
Walking through the door, so unknown
I am afraid, but that won’t hold me down
You take my hand, you take my first step too
I won’t forget to remember you

All I need to know is you’ll never let me go
In a thousand years, you’ll still be here

All this confidence, so well-known
My faith is weak, but that won’t hold you down
You give me breath, you breathe it for me too
I won’t forget to remember you

All I need to know is You’ll never let me go
In a thousand years, you’ll still be here
Track Name: Tragedy & Magic
Oh the sea is calling, I'll set sail for you
There's a world of dreams beyond, I'll journey home to you

The edge of a map, the ancient path
Never look back, 'till I'm with you at last

As spring gardens bloom, so our time has come
When the red clouds move, the past is undone

Lantern light, glowing white
Say goodbye to lonely nights

Legends live on long after you're gone
Though tragedy and magic have fallen
The world may forget but I'll never regret
Our tragedy and magic, beloved

Oh the sea is calling, I'll set sail for you
There's a world of dreams beyond, I'll journey home to you
Track Name: Mainland
Lover, come to me, I’ve been waiting so long
Here on the mainland, storms are raging
Oh so lonesome for your arms

My love wrote to me messages of longing
When winter’s past and the storm is gone
Then will the treacherous voyage come

Here I stand on the northern edge
Do you see the light of the mainland?

Lover, sing to me, tell me tales of destiny
Here on the mainland wars are waging
Oh I’m yearning for your touch

My prince promised me treasures beyond my dreams
But here on the mainland winds are changing
Nothing to keep me warm but your heart

Here I stand on the northern edge
Do you see the light of the mainland?

Strong winds blowing away all my hope
(but I still feel you)

Showers pouring down on my faith
(but I still feel you)

Night so dark I am walking blinded
(but I still feel you)

Voices calling to me unfamiliar
(but I still feel you)

Then the break of dawn arrives and I see you

Lover, come to me, I’ve been waiting so long
Here on the mainland, storms are raging
Oh so lonesome for your arms

My love wrote to me messages of longing
When winter’s past and the storm is gone
Then will the treacherous voyage come

Do you feel my love on the mainland?
Come back to my fireside here on the mainland

Come to the garden of delight here on the mainland
Come home to good company here on the mainland
Tell me tales of destiny here on the mainland

Here on the mainland storms are raging
Oh so lonesome for your arms

Here on the mainland wars are waging
Oh I’m yearning for your touch

Here on the mainland winds are changing
Nothing to keep me warm but your heart

On the mainland…
Track Name: Say Yes
Wasted a lie, can’t understand why
Wasted and untied, want you to run away
Wanted to try, can’t ever stand behind
Wanting to hide, from everything I want to say

Say yes to me, my love
It’s all you’ll ever need

Watching your eyes, I’m lingering for a while
Something inside, makes you want to run away
Fading this time, I’m going out like the tide
Washing away everything I want to say

Say yes to me, my love
It’s all you’ll ever need

I am afraid of the fear…

Wasted a lie
Wanted to hide
Watching your eyes
Fading this time
Track Name: Confess My Love
Heavy is the metal, heavy is the leather
Ready in this armor, constricting my heart
Helmet in my hand, greaves around my thighs
Rumors of destruction, here to say goodbye

Dreams of glory fading, Dreams of love thrown down
This is the spear you throw into me, I fall to my knees
This is the arrow you drove into me, as I confessed my love

Steel plates upon my chest can’t stop the bleeding
Despite all the training for this moment in time
Night is come, a moonlit knife embraces my side
Vision dim, closing in, I see through glazing eyes
Dreams of glory fading, Dreams of love thrown down

This is the spear you throw into me, I fall to my knees
This is the arrow you drove into me, as I confessed my love

This is the conquest, a bloodless heart still beating
This is the triumph, strangled lungs still breathing
This is the victory, the silent voice still screaming
This is reality, blackened wounds still healing

As I confess my love…
Track Name: Illusion
Love, I want you to know, every time
I wanted to show, this raging inside
I’ve fallen behind, every time
You whisper the line, I’m raging inside

This is my illusion, oh
Lost but not forgotten, oh

Love, I want to embrace what I despise
I try to erase this plaguing inside
I’ve long been enslaved in your eyes
For all you’ve depraved, is replacing inside

This is my illusion – oh
Lost but not forgotten – oh

Fell in love with the ruins, the ruins
And the reigns remained
Fell in time to the weakness of hunger
A romance decay
