The band Trees of Eternity is a musical collaboration between Finnish guitarist Juha Raivio (Swallow the Sun) and Sweden based, South Africa born, singer Aleah. Their music is often described as down-tempo, doom/death inspired melancholia with ghostly female vocals.
Trees of Eternity were formed in 2009 when guitarist Juha Raivio and singer Aleah got together in the studio to work on the song "Lights on the Lake" for the upcoming Swallow the Sun album New Moon. The plan was to feature Aleah’s vocals on part of the song already prepared by Juha, but when they instead began to experiment with a vocal line Aleah had written for the occasion the session quickly headed off in a new direction and the project took on a life of its own.
The pair have released a four song promo online, and have since completed and recorded the songs for their upcoming debut album. In 2012 Trees of Eternity also signed a publishing deal with UK based AMF Publishing.
The full album line-up of Trees of Eternity will, apart from the two original members, include Fredrik Norrman (October Tide, ex Katatonia), Mattias Norrman (October Tide, ex Katatonia) and Kai Hahto (Wintersun, Swallow the Sun), as well as some acclaimed guest musicians.
