H.L. "Of Earth & Angels" is a solid first step to the actual masterpiece "Kings & Queens". Basically, it already offered the same mixture of LEAH'S angelic voice and melodic metal tunes with celtic influences. Maybe the songs were more focused on her voice than nowadays. We find some strongs songs on this album, like "Old World", "Ex Cathedra" or "Mainland". Favorite track: Ex Cathedra.

Pie Second favourite: "I Fade". Other great (!) songs are "Ocean" amd "Mainland" (which has a Loreena McKennitt-meets-Within Temptation vibe) I have procrastinated buying her "Kings & Queens" album. I shall fix that immediately. Favorite track: Remember.

Prisoner 05:05
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…

Remember 04:14
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...

Old World 04:00
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

I Fade 03:44
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...

Ex Cathedra 04:27
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

Ocean 03:29
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
7.
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

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

Mainland 04:58
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…

Say Yes 04:12
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

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…

Illusion 04:12
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
