Canadian Symphonic / Celtic Metal artist Leah will release her new album “The Quest” on October 5th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings. The first single ‘Edge of Your Sword’ is out now and can be streamed below. Download the new single here.
In the 30 minute video below, you’ll see the musicians around the world who contributed to creating this brand new Celtic Fantasy Metal album, what it was like to create something like this, and how we pulled it off being in separate locations all around the world!It won’t be long now!!
“The Quest” was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Evergrey] and musicians on the album includes Troy Donockley [Nightwish], Timo Somers [Delain], Chen Balbus [Orphaned Land], Barend Courbois [Blind Guardian] and Sander Zoer [ex. Delain].
With a strong Celtic & Fantasy connection, some prog rock elements, ethereal ambiance, combined with traditional Symphonic Metal elements, this is an album Leah is very proud to present.
The concept for “The Quest” is very simple: we’re all on a journey, and sometimes we lose our way. There are adventures, wildernesses, treasures, monsters, looters, people out to send us down the wrong path. Through it all, we must grow in wisdom and experience, find our compass once again and find our way back to the true path in order to reach our full potential: our destiny.
Leah says: I wanted to let you know that the PRESALE for The Quest begins Monday, September 17th! Not only will you get a chance to order the album early before the release date, but there’s a whole Quest collection awaiting you… along with a few perks for ordering early. So get ready!
And on that note, I also wanted to let you know that the only way you can purchase the album – digital or physical – will be through the LEAH Shop ONLY. I don’t know when I will release it to digital outlets or streaming sites – it could be in a month or 6 months from now. I realize not everyone will like this, but I have to do what’s best as an independent artist, and the best way to support the music you love is by supporting artists directly through their websites. Thank you for YOUR support and understanding!
