LEAVES’ EYES Live in Toronto April 27th 2017

Leaves’ Eyes formed in 2003 in Norway and is a mix of Symphonic/Viking/Pagan/Folk music. When I first heard Leaves’ Eyes in 2013, I became an instant fan. In 2015, thanks to AFM Records, Leaves’ Eyes released their 6th studio album King Of Kings. This was my #1 album for 2015. As good as the album was, Leaves’ Eyes decided it was time to switch things up. In April 2016 the band and singer Liv Kristine decided to…

My Top 10 Albums of 2016 – Shawn “Animalize” Irwin

Another year has passed with new music and what a year it has been. With over 100 releases for me to go through to try and break it down to my personal top 10 favorite, wasn’t easy! As a fan of different styles of music, it was hard to pick what I feel as my Top 10. One day it might be some heavier music where other days more melodic. So many other great releases came…
