Description

Svart Records is proud to release the new posthumous solo album by Aleah Liane Stanbridge, better known as Aleah Starbridge, singer of the Swedish/Finnish band Trees of Eternity. Aleah passed away in 2016 after a brave fight with cancer. She was just 39 years old when she left this mortal coil, but Aleah's eternal spirit lives on through her beautiful music, realised in her solo album brought to fruition by her life partner and Swallow The Sun/Trees of Eternity guitarist, Juha Raivio.After relocating to Sweden from her native South Africa, Aleah first became known after she was featured on Swedish electronic musician Krister Linder's "Don't Lose Your Way" from his 2006 album "Songs from the Silent Years".From releasing the dark folk demo "Aleah" in 2007, to 2008 when Aleah became lead singer of That Which Remains, formed with Andy Cousin from The Mission, she showed early promise of her huge creative talents to come.In mid-2009 Aleah met guitarist Juha Raivio from Swallow the Sun, and they worked on several critically and commercially successful collaborations together, including the 2009 guest performance on song "Lights on the Lake" that Aleah contributed to Swallow the Sun's album New Moon, the 2012 guest performance that Aleah contributed to Swallow the Sun's album Emerald Forest and the Blackbird and appearing in the music video for song "Cathedral Walls", which featured Swedish singer Anette Olzon who was in Nightwish at the time. Aleah and Raivio's heart-project became known as Trees of Eternity, a game-changing gothic doom metal band with an ambient folk sound and ghostly female vocals. The band worked on a four-song promo, Black Ocean which was released online in 2013 to a fervent fan and media buzz, with limited signed physical copies sold direct to fans. Already by this point Trees of Eternity was gathering an enthralled throng of passionate devotees and garnering the attention of a much wider audience.In 2015, Aleah sang as a guest on Under the Red Cloud by Finnish heavy metal band Amorphis,
