Biography

Leaf-fat was formed in the year 2001, though with a different line-up at the time. The current line-up was shaped in early 2002 and hasn't changed since. This Slovenian five-piece band plays an interesting mixture of emo, metal and punk, which was their most early influence. The band’s youth and passion for music gives them a unique character on stage, where they never run out of energy.

Their debut full length album “Underworld kingdom” saw the light of day in June 2005 and has already been called the best alternative album of 2005 by the critics and won the second spot among the top 10 albums of the year at a voting poll of a Slovenian underground radio station. They also shot a video for “Winter song”.

Leaf-fat is very much a live band. They spent a lot of 2005 playing gigs in and out of Slovenia. In May they won a respectable second place amongst more than 100 bands at an international festival in Austria called Newcomer festival. They spent most of fall touring all the bigger Slovenian cities to promote their album. Playing that many gigs resulted in sharing the stage with worldwide successful bands like Soulfly, Mad Caddies, Antimaniacs and The Real McKenzies. In Autumn / Winter 2006 they were touring Slovenjia again with the biggest Slovenian rock band Siddharta.

Their activities were not in vain and the band soon caught the eye of different promoters and producers in Slovenia and abroad. One of the biggest ski and snowboard companies “Elan” decided to use Leaf-fat’s music in their promo DVD’s and the Californian based production company DPC Films did the same in their DVD that was out in spring 2006.

In December 2007 Leaf-fat released their second album RockPaperScissors that made their fans get crazy. First video and single is very high up on Slovenian music charts …
Know for their charismatic singer, their energy and power, devotion and self-confidence on stage will convince anyone who is willing to see them play, lend them an ear and give them a listen. With their second album RockPaperScissor , the band shows musical growth both instrumentally and in songwriting itself. Which is, considering their age - 21years old average, a sign of a young band determined and motivated on their musical journey.

Hits: Winter song, Individual happiness, UK, RockPaperScissors, Better Still …

Latest news: after their second album was released and they promote it really good in home town of Ljubljana, they decided to give foreign countries a choice to hear them again. The tour in Canada is waiting for them in march and Austria and Germany is surely going to be a destination for some time …

Lyrics

Individual Happiness

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

White shadows in front of my eyes
God i hope that you turned me in
Don`t know what i'm supposed to do
One minute and everything is gone

Clouds — divine gravitation
And we need to walk out of this planet
Silence is just another noise in my head
Should i scream ?

Take me, fake me, now i`m scared
Break me, i`m fragile
Now even you are hiding from me
And clouds prefer me...clouds prefer...

Now you are hiding...

Clouds are divine gravitation
And we need to jump off of this planet
Silence is just another noise
Should i scream?

U.K.

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

Serene, I fall onto you,
Posing different styles,
Beneath in your underworld kingdom, kingdom

You took me by surprise,
With your cheap tricks!!!
With you on that fire,
I wonder who'll fry first?

So fry, let it all burn!!!
Serene, I fall onto you,
Posing different styles,
Beneath in your underworld kingdom

Shadows of young carcasses are covering the traces of our tender crime
You left me here in the dark

Winter song

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

Hide your face in your gold
And don´t come out
Cos the world is made of leaders in the crowd

I despise the shining on you
Don´t even want to look inside of you
Your barking- result of pushing your fears away!

We´ve got nothing incommon
Just like night & day

Your ignorance has shake the ground
Your hatred is fighting in this round
This is the way you wanted to be

I don´t understand
That you feel no remorse
We are not here to be mocked
So show us the doors

We are not first or the last
Who`ĺl turn the back on you
Shut your fucking mouth
Figure it out on your own!!!

And you know that you always wanted to be like that
And you know that at first you´ve tried to sacrifice your life just for me
Just for me, you have tried to sacrifice !!!
Sacrifice !!! ( don´t wanna be, want it this way )

RockPaperScissors

Written By: sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

Take off your mask and end this circus
We need something true and sore
We don’t need any clowns or jugglers
We want to see you on the floor

Pushing the limits – am i the protagonist?
Knuckles are ready for a clenching fist
Aware of the downfall – am i the realist?
It’s too late for a last decision, you won’t feel a thing

RockPaperScissorsPaperRock…

Can you hear the sound?
It’s stinging…
It’s in your ears,
It won’t go away

The ropes are already hanging
Like a necklace
Around your neck
Pushing the limits – am i the protagonist?
Aware of the downfall – am i the realist?
It’s too late for you, for a last decision,
You won’t feel a thing

RockPaperScissorsPaperRock…
Can you hear the sound?
It’s ringing in your ears
And it won’t go away!

Now you taste the sound
It’s piercing…
Through your ears and it won’t go away!

Unfortunate Event On Its Way To Nothing (Infinity)

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

Waiting for the master’s shotgun to blow us into nothing.
Into nothing we’re blown. go!

Shades of black,
Ornament of our existence
Burn the noise just to be deaf inside
Shades of blades
Monolithic statues of our miserable,
Robotic lives

You say: “break the routine!”
I swallow my last cup of sorrow
Did i break it? did i break it? did i?

Into eternity we fall
We gave the beast our bones
The monster we’ve created – we are one!

Blow us into nothing! we are one!

Suckers crawling through the mud,
Frantic helicopters ‘n’ cameras above
Waiting for the final flood
Wash us into nothing

So would you be so kind and wash us into nothing?
Nothing! wash me!
Will you be so kind and blow us into nothing!

Into ashes we fall
Left without an answer – we are one!

Il Malocchio

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

The annoying fly on a resting hand
Will you catch it? will, will you make an end?

(the next move is killing the groove)

It’s all around, your majesty
The most profound from the way down
It’s all around, your cavity
All out of bound, taste like a frown

The symbols are written by a stick in the sand
Comprehend or leave my friend. descent, make an end.

(the next move is killing the groove)

Your shadow worships you.

It’s all around, your majesty
The most profound from the way down
It’s all around, your cavity
All out of bound, taste like a frown
(the next move is killing the groove)

MCFTD

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

I’m filled with misery and despair
As i’m laying on the floor
So cold and wet, wondering: do you care?

Do you care?
While walking proudly on the stage of joy and safety
You must be well

Blinded by the media, believers and their gods
Let me strip your jesus
All you pacifists and democrats

Shove my face into a tv screen
Let me entertain you, baby So do you?
Care?

While walking proudly on the stage of joy and safety
You must be well

Tragedy – is the show that you wanted!
Constant fear – don’t wait for salvation!
Misery – is the scene and you’re in it!
Decay - i smell something burning!

Better still

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

Still better days to come
The saddest melt the sun
The highest peak, the climax
Still better days for some…

Still better nights to sleep
Eyes wide shut and in too deep
The highest peak, the climax
The lights’re out – the prey is weak

Still better years to swallow
New footsteps to follow
The highest peak of a mountain
Still better days to come…

Idols like Icarus

Written By: Sercer, Krasevec, Skocir, Medved, A.Ogorevc

I’ll climb the highest mountain
Just to scream your secrets out, all out so loud
That the deaf will hear again
And the blind will see the end

So the dreams are over
My wings are cut, left behind
Hard concrete is waiting
For you to cross the line

Next time you fly so high
Don’t forget the sun
Wax will melt like you had felt
When you fell straight into the ocean

Seconds away from the past
From what lasts
A sec away from the past
Too fast you’re possesed
