Canadian Symphonic / Celtic Metal Artist LEAH Releases Second Single ‘Lion Arises’


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 second single ‘Lion Arises’ is out now, listen to the song on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play via this link, and you can also purchase directly from her!

Today I’m happy to release a brand new single, which I promised you, entitled ‘Lion Arises’! I’m feeling more inspired than ever right now, and I want to share this moment with you. The brilliant artwork, by Jan Yrlund, once again. He noted that it was a tricky concept to put together as I described it for him, but I think he did a brilliant job.

As many of you are aware, I tend not to write in specific detail, but more in themes and moods and bigger concepts. This particular song was inspired by a mix of a little passage from Psalm 3 and lots of imagination.

“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.

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!
