The Leaving releases live cover version of Trevor Something’s »The Ghost«

The Leaving led by Frederyk Rotter from doom/death/sludge band Zatokrev releases live cover version of Trevor Something’s »The Ghost«.

Rotter comments: “Most of you know that we are busy producing our new album. But Ines Brodbeck, Corbat Sandro and I found a little spot to record a few cover songs live at the Black Art Audio Studios with Simon Jameson. You can watch and listen it today exclusively through the wonderful Cultartes and read their beautiful article. We hope you’ll enjoy.”

The Leaving started in 2010 as an acoustic solo project under the name Fredy Rotten. Behind the name is Frederyk Rotter, who is also known as the front man of the metal band Zatokrev. In contrast to Zatokrev, whose sound comes along as a huge noise-doom steamroller, The Leaving is more reminiscent of a quietly babbling brook in the dark of a quiet forest.

The first album of the singer-songwriter project at the time was titled »Even If We Sleep« and was released in 2010. In the years that followed, Rotter played countless concerts all over Europe and continued to work on new song material, for which he was able to win over numerous musicians for collaborations. In 2016 the project was finally renamed The Leaving and the album »Faces« was released on the artist’s own label Czar Of Crickets Productions.

In the years that followed, Rotter wrote new song material and found musicians in Ines Brodbeck, Eric Gut, Raffaela Dieu and Sandro Corbat to interpret it. For the first time, The Leaving had a full line-up as a permanent band.

The new combo is currently working on a new album. In the meanwhile three of the musicians (Sandro Corbat, Ines Brodbeck, Frederyk Rotter) also took the time to record a few cover songs live at the Black Art Audio Studio with Simon Jameson. With three guitars and two vocals they kept the setup simple. »The Ghost«, a song by Trevor Something, is the first that was released exclusively on YouTube.
