THEATRE OF TRAGEDY做过两件事,是金属迷眼中相当丑陋的:第一是红极一时之时,背弃了歌德金属转向电子,令广大的支持者失望到极点;第二是2004年突然无理将女主音Liv Kristine赶走。THEATRE OF TRAGEDY的成功有至少一半是归功於她的歌声,乐队这样做等同于自掘坟墓 ,但已没有多少人理会原因或去向,因为众人的注意力已经转移到Liv Kristine处。仅接到来自团员的一封电邮通知、被单方面辞退的她并没有自暴自弃或找昔日的队友兼十多年好友晦气,相反立即组成了一支新乐团继续自己的音乐事业,这「复仇工具」,便是取她的名字而成的LEAVES’ EYES。
成立这团的意思源於某日她和夫婿、ATROCITY首脑兼制作人Alexander Krull森林中的漫步。

Gothic metal band Leaves’ Eyes was born out of the romantic relationship between singer Liv Kristine Espenæs and guitarist Alexander Krull, who met whilst she was fronting Norway’s Theatre of Tragedy and he Germany’s Atrocity. The pair eventually married and announced their musical union in 2003, with Espenæs quitting Theatre of Tragedy to join Krull and the rest of Atrocity’s lineup (guitarists Thorsten Bauer and Mathias Roderer, bassist Christian Lukhaup, and drummer Nick Barker) to found Leaves’ Eyes and record their 2004 debut album, Lovelorn. Along with its next-year successor, Vinland Saga, the record confirmed the new group’s affinity for theatrical, symphonic goth-metal, as the leading couple living out the ‘beauty and the beast’ vocal roles.
