Product Description

With their latest masterpiece "Njord", Leaves' Eyes embarks on yet another enthralling journey through the myths and sagas of the North. The strong and sonorous compositions familiar to the band's fanbase have been further developed. The adventure begins with the title track's powerful and somber choruses and orchestra. Fans will find the continuation of the Leave's Eyes hit "Elegy" in the rocking single "My Destiny", which is only one of the
many catchy and soon-to-be hits delivered by Liv and her colleagues. Devilishly enticing are the refrains found on "Take the Devil in Me", "Northbound", and "Through Our Veins", the last of which reminisces in the driving beats of the eighties' rock rhythms. Leaves' Eyes' passion for both heavy and opulent sounds harmonizes perfectly with memorable melodies, as in the epic track "Ragnarok", while "Emerald Island" surprises with heavy double bass passages that are counterattacked by Liv Kristine's haunting vocals. Alongside the lavish hits, Leaves' Eyes always finds room for the more subdued folk moments, such as in the interpretation of the English traditional song "Scarborough Fair" or the fragile acoustic ballad "Irish Rain". The opus "Froyas Theme" rounds off the Nordic journey, uniting the choral arrangements of the magnificent Lingua Mortis Orchestra with the emotional strength inherent in the new Leaves' Eyes compositions. "Njord" impressively defends the sextet's claim as the leading force in symphonic Gothic Rock and Metal.

After the brilliant 'Vinland Saga' album I had this on pre-order and have played it more or less continuously since I got it. It is totally addictive. 'Vinland Saga' was just perfect and I could never get enough of that. This is more of the same and that is just great! It is majestically brilliant. Themed again around Viking and Norse legend the album gets off to an epic start with 'Njord' itself, 6 mins 14 seconds of utter genius. After a beautiful vocal introduction from Liv the band crashes in and a relentless, driving anthem emerges set against a choral backdrop and Krull's growling vocals. This is going to be something live. 'My Destiny' follows, their current single. Tragic lyrics, brilliant sorrowful vocals again from Liv, crunching guitars, great chorus. 'Emerald Isle' returns to a theme well explored in 'Vinland Saga', that of leaving and discovery. After a lovely orchestral intro Liv's crystaline voice comes in and then the song is propelled forward on a wave of drums and guitars with Krull growling menacingly in the background. 'Take the Devil in Me' is one of the many highlights. Another sad song about death and regret, it is brilliantly handled by the band who are so tight together here. Everything works so well, another rousing anthem and another great chorus. 'Scarborough fair' is the first time you draw breath. Until now the album has blasted along. This could have been a disaster but the wonderful Simon & Garfunkel song is beautifully handled by the band, effotlessly wonderful vocals by Liv, the song is built of alternate sequences of delicate verses and crunchingly epic choruses backed by uillean pipes which give it a trad folky feel. Superb! 'Through Our Veins' is easily missed but is yet another great fast paced song. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Massive Epic Album 26 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed Vinland Saga but Njord is something else again, probably the best power-metal release of 2009.

A couple of other reviews describe the songs in detail but in summary this is a fine piece of music. Very orchestral and with overtones of Clannad and James Horner in the mix. To describe it just as "metal" is really doing this grand work a dis-service, it's an aural rock-metal symphony that the great classical composers would be proud of.

I've listened through the album twice now and it grows each time. There is some "light" growling from Mr. Krull but it's not intrusive cookie monster stuff and blends with the other themes in the music.

I thoroughly recommend this fine album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Nordic Metal 29 Aug 2009
By Ravenheart Music VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I will admit that Leaves' Eyes are one of my top female fronted bands, ranking alongside Within Temptation, Nightwish and Lacuna Coil. Their music is awesome and Liv's vocals send shivers up and down my spine, So what about this latest offering. Let's just say this is just a colossal piece of music by musicians that are top of their league, and very near untouchable in this genre at this current moment in time. Kicking off with the atmospheric and heavy 6 minute plus title track, I know I am going to like this record...lots. Second track in, 'My Destiny' featured on the recent EP, and I am totally bewitched already by the music on this album. And it is only track 2! This is typical Leaves' Eyes (if it ain't broken, why fix it?), it rocks, it is heavy and it is so melodic. All the tracks here are top drawer, but songs worthy of a mention include the uptempo and catchy 'Take The Devil In Me', 'Northbound', 'The Holy Bond' and the epic 8 minute plus 'Froya's Theme'. And let's not forget 'Scarborough Fair'. Excellent and totally absorbing. The Vikings are coming - bring them on!

Slightly disappointing album, especially after hearing their excellent debut. No tracks really stand out and the whole album feels rather average.
