Snow covered the ground. Soon the flakes would dance in the air again, but in the meanwhile a photo was captured. The French artist with a Celtic metal band had moved from the sunny Southern France to Nordic Finland. She had chosen, as her new album echoes, the frozen path. Like many others, she has found the freedom to be herself and to pursue her dreams in a foreign country. The extreme conditions of the North inspire many of Eilera’s lyrics, and while the bounding music warms cold hearts, sharp eyes can spot a drop of tear falling into the vodka glasses in the audience. The feeling of being alive again; not a bad gift to the humanity… worth walking a frozen path, she admits.
