Geboren aus der Partnerschaft zwischen Singer-Songwriter Aleah Starbridge und Gitarrist / Komponist Juha Raivio begann Trees Of Eternity als eine ruhige Akustikkollaboration aber wuchs zu einer vollen Band heran die durch die Norman Brüder (ex-Katatonia, October Tide) an den Streichinstrumenten und Kai Hahto am Schlagzeug ergänzt wurde.

Drei Jahre Arbeit am Debütalbum der Band wurden diesen Frühling auf tragische Weise unterbrochen als Aleah in der finalen Postproduktionsphase des Albums verstarb.

Das Album ist nun fertig gestellt und SVART ist stolz es der Welt zu präsentieren und damit das Vermächtnis und das künstlerische Geschick von Aleah Starbridge zu ehren.

Das Cover Artwork stammt von Fursy Teyssier (Les Discrets). Juha und Fursy haben nächtelange Gespräche über Aleahs Magie geführt und Fursys Arbeit schafft es die Essenz des Albums perfekt einzufangen.

"The art contains such power and calm beauty, so many hidden messages. It is mystical in the same way that Aleah always was" kommentiert Juha Raivio.

"This is a celebration of the music, lyrics and life of Aleah, who so tragically and suddenly crossed the bridge of stars and left this world so young and so early.

There really are no words to describe the ultimate weight of the darkness, or the rays of the brightest of light that this album holds within its songs and lyrics.

In so many ways this album turned out to be the most important album I've done in my life, and we both loved it from the first note to the last as we wrote it.

We were very proud to record "Hour of the Nightingale" together with our friends, band mates and amazing musicians, Kai Hahto, Mattias and Fredrik Norrman who all played their hearts out on this album.

And working with another good friend Jens Bogren producing, recording, mixing and mastering the album we're ready to take this music to the world and play it to you all.

Sadly, that never happened... But this is the point where we can finally start this long journey and celebrate our Queen Aleah Starbridge whose words and music will live forever on." Juha Raivio
