Leaves' Eyes is a German-Norwegian gothic metal band from Stavanger, Norway and Ludwigsburg, Germany. They were formed in 2003 by Liv Kristine, the former lead singer of Theatre of Tragedy and the entire line-up of Atrocity. To date, the band has released three studio albums, a single, three EPs, and one live album and DVD.

Their debut album, Lovelorn, was released in 2004. The second album, Vinland Saga, was released 30 May 2005, and retells the tale of the discovery of Vinland (i.e. North America) by Leif Erikson. The EP Legend Land was released on June 2, 2006 as a followup to Vinland Saga.
