Product Info

LIV KRISTINE – VERVAIN
The finest piece of music art – and nothing less

This album definitely is larger than even Liv Kristine herself might be aware of by now. She has established a world-wide career. Moreover, she was nominated for the Grammy Award. Liv has sold upwards of 500,000 records with Theatre of Tragedy, toured through more than 40 countries on five continents, and has charted consistently with Leaves’ Eyes, Theatre of Tragedy, and as a solo artist.

Now, Liv Kristine has created VERVAIN!

Liv Kristine’s fifth solo album unfolds as a dark rock masterpiece assembling terrific melodies, enthralling song structures and a world class voice – all captured in an incomparable premium sound. Deliberately, the singer bethinks herself of the musical strengths that made her famous as the epicenter of the legendary Theatre of Tragedy. In cooperation with talented musicians she now delivers her greatest production ever. Haunting tunes, imaginative instrumentation and extraordinary creativity unite into the finest piece of music art eternalized in a perfect sound production. Never before, the Norwegian vocalist has seduced ears and minds under the cloak of such a variety of characters – all of them torn between darkness and light. “My Wilderness” is a brilliant rock song and the perfect opener for the album. In “Love Decay”, a soon-to-be gothic hit, two longing vampires crave for love in a passionate duet*. Driven by energetic rock beats, her haunting and angel-like voice on “Hunters” only gives a glimpse of what a femme fatale is able to do with men. Contrary to this, the fragile and vulnerable “Lotus” makes you melt, displaying as a heart-breaking elegy of loneliness. The fateful instrumentation of “Creeper” seems to soak a doomed Liv Kristine into decay ironically. A highlight solely by the combination of these two singers, the tailor-made duet “Stronghold of Angels” merges both so unequal voices just naturally, as if they had been singing together all their lives*. The variety of VERVAIN seems to be the outcome of different gifted song writers – which it is not! However, all the songs share the same intriguing atmosphere only the original Theatre of Tragedy-songs knew to create. What better occasion is there to present VERVAIN live than the “The Sirens” tour of gothic metal legends Liv Kristine (Leaves’ Eyes, ex-Theatre of Tragedy), Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) and Kari Rueslåtten (ex-The 3rd And The Mortal)?

VERVAIN is a true gift for myriads of her followers who have been following Liv Kristine’s career since the golden times with Theatre of Tragedy!

LIV KRISTINE – Music in Pictures: “FRØYA”

10294248_845005382178910_8207803622483476397_nDear Followers of Norse Gods & Goddesses,

again the world of Pagan Gods and Goddesses have given me inspiration for my visual artistic work. Here is a brand new painting of FRØYA – the Vanir Goddess of love and beauty. In my visualization I have paid attention to her character of being a warrior goddess, moreover, her well-known abilities of great wisdom and magic.

I hope you like it!

Love,

Liv
