Leah Releases Video for New Song ‘Before This War is Over’


Canadian Symphonic / Celtic Metal artist Leah just released her new single ‘Before This War is Over’ that will apear on her upcoming album.

Leah states: As usual, I’m taken back to old days and times, when wars were an everyday occurrence, and yet we now find ourselves in a battle for the hearts and minds of mankind today. I love to mix old history themes with modern struggles because these themes are timeless and will never expire as long as we are human (let’s hope AI doesn’t take over, right! As you know, I’m a big lover of freedom and liberty and for many years now, I’ve felt we’re all in a big spiritual war; good against evil. The message of the song is that even in the midst of war, we can have victory. Even in the presence of struggle and great evil, we can prevail, thrive and WIN. So, though it’s a heavier lyrical theme, the real message is victory.

This song has Timo Somers on guitars and bass (ex-Delain), Sander Zoer on drums (Delain), and Oliver Philipps in orchestration and production (Everon, Phantasma), and Leah wrote the music, lyrics, and sing all vocals. Cover Artwork by Jan Yrlund.

Thank you for watching this video and for your support! I’m an independent artist, mother to 5 kids, and entrepreneur (Fun Fact: my 16-year-old son filmed this footage). I look forward to releasing a new album later this year. If you want to help contribute to making it a reality, please check out the links below. All proceeds go directly to making this album and future videos like this!

The video can be seen below.

Leah adds: I originally wanted to have it complete last year in 2022, but life took over and especially in the last quarter when my dad passed away, it put everything on hold for a few months. Now, I’m in the depths of recording final vocals. Right now, I’m chipping away at it 2 days a week, since I have so many other responsibilities. It may take me longer, but I promise it will be worth it!

Sleeping Giant’ is her most recent effort (Feb. 2022). The song features very special guests: Mark Jansen (Epica) on harsh vocals and Timo Somers (ex-Delain) on guitars and bass, and Sander Zoer (Delain) on drums!

If the rest of the album is this good, it’ll be absolutely brilliant. It’s super heavy, and the lyrics reflect the troubles of today in a very subtle and fantasy-inspired way. In case you haven’t heard the song, check it out here.
