RIP Aleah Stanbridge..

The world lost someone precious and talented… Such dark times for music industry…

Aleah was best known for her band Trees of Eternity but she also collaborated with bands like Swallow The Sun and Amorphis in some songs.. Her voice was truly unique and otherworldly… Although there is no official statement of the cause of her death, in the Metal Archives website, it’s stated that the cause is cancer.

Rest in peace Aleah. I read that she believed in the transformation of energies… Wherever you are, I hope you are at peace and happy.

You will live in our hearts with your pure and angelic voice…
