Shows in May as four-piece - new bass player from June 1st
It's time to update you on our new line-up. Unfortunately we had to part ways with our longtime bass player Tom Heinz, since he is not able to devote as much time to the band as needed. Starting June 1st he will be replaced by the incredible Hendrik Franke (TRANSGRESSION, MARTYRION) who some of you have already seen on stage with us at our reunion show in March. But since Hendrik will be on a long planned vacation during May, we will be playing the upcoming two shows as a four-piece with bass guitar coming from the backing tracks.
The decision to part with Tom hasn't been an easy one, since he as been an important member from the start in 2007. But after one year of absence, with us not able to plan for upcoming shows and releases, we just simply had to make a cut in order to allow us to move ahead with all our plans for the future. We are very sorry about that and want to point out, that there is no bad blood or anything between Tom and the rest of us!
Shows im Mai als Quartett - neuer Bassist ab 1. Juni
Heute wird es Zeit euch auf den neusten Stand in Sachen Besetzung bei LEVIATHAN zu bringen, denn nachdem wir ein Jahr ohne unseren Bassisten Tom auskommen mussten, haben wir uns entschieden ab dem 1. Juni den Posten am Bass an Hendrik Franke (MARTYRION, TRANSGRESSION) weiterzugeben. Von seinen Qualtiät am Viersaiter konnten sich einige von euch bereits bei unserer Reunion-Show in Siegburg überzeugen, wo er uns bereits ausgeholfen hat. Leider verbringt Hendrik allerdings den größten Teil des Mais auf einer lange geplanten Urlaubsreise, weswegen wir die kommenden beiden Shows zu viert mit den Bass-Spuren vom Backing Track bestreiten werden.
Wir möchte auch noch einmal sagen, dass die Enscheidung uns von Tom zu trennen keinesfalls einfach war, immerhin war er vom Beginn im Jahr 2007 ein wichtiges Mitglied der Band. Aber nachdem wir nun ein Jahr lange auf ihn gewartet haben und er auch auf absehbare Zeit nicht wieder zu uns gestoßen wäre, mussten wir einfach eine Entscheidung treffen, um mit unseren anstehenden Plänen wie dem neuen Album voranzukommen. Trotzdem gibt es keinerlei böses Blut zwischen uns, nur auf Dauer wäre eine Liveshow mit Bass-Spuren aus der Retorte einfach keine Lösung für uns gewesen.
Thank you Siegburg! (posted: 2018-04-01)

New Anniversary Shirt (posted: 2017-10-20)
Celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, we are not only planning some special shows for early 2018, we also have created a very special shirt-design to mark this milestone in our career.
The design was executed by Calvariam Design and combines the phoenix as a symbol for the return of LEVIATHAN after a long break, as well as the anniversary.
The shirt itself is now available as a girlie and men's version at our official store as a pre-order, which will be shipped around November 8th.
In addition to the shirt we also offer you the chance to buy a hoodie with the design exclusively as a pre-order. That means
that the hoodie will only be available as a pre-order until October 25th 6 p.m. CET. Afterwards the hoodie won't be available in our store!
So make sure to be quick with your order.
Line-Up changes (posted: 2017-10-15)
Most of you know that we did not only lose a keyboard-player when Fabian had to leave, but also someone who was supplying clean and backing-vocals on stage and in the studio.
While the gap on keys could easily be filled by backing-tracks, we had to search for an addition to our line-up to enable us to perform with mutliple voice singing on stage.
And after a few weeks of rehearsals we are proud to welcome Jule Dahs (Ex-Skadika) on board!
From now on she will be adding her voice to our sound with clean vocals, as well as some additional growls and shouts.
And for all of you who might be worried now: LEVIATHAN will not become a Female-Fronted-Band and we won't turn into Nightwish anytime soon!
Instead Jules voice is just going to add another color to our sound just as Joy Masala did on our studio productions ("The Scourge We Wield", "About Fangs And Feathers")
Update September 2017 (posted: 2017-09-16)
It is finally happening!
Five years have passend since we went into the studio to record "The Aeons Torn", but now finally we have started the recording sessions for what will eventually become our third album.
The release is currently planned for early 2018, but we will keep you updated throughout the process with regular videos from the studio!
But as a first teaser, here is already a short video from the first sessions for rhythm guitars!
Update August 2017 (posted: 2017-08-17)
We are back online! After the split of the band in July 2013 there has been a long phase of silence, but now we are back in full strength and starting with rehearsals for the
Further on LEVIATHAN is also celebrating it's 10th anniversary in 2017. To mark the occasion we are currently preparing recordings for a special release, which will be coming your way later in the year.
So there are plenty of reasons to keep yourself updated on our next moves. And while we are still getting back in shape, you can find some special priced items in our Official Store since we are clearing
our stock for future endeavours.
