Interview with Liv Kristine – Leave’s Eyes

December 18th, 2013

Liv Kristine Interview by Beth Avison

In the ever-similar pool of symphonic metal, there are only a few bands which truly stand out. One such band is Norway’s Leaves’ Eyes, who have managed to command an impressive legion of fans since their inception in 2003. Now releasing their fifth studio album Symphonies of the Night, the five-piece are preparing for a string of tour dates in 2014, including a stint in the UK. I had an email exchange with well-grounded frontwoman Liv Kristine to find out more.

LEAVES’ EYES – album title, cover artwork and release date!

January 16th, 2011
LEAVES' EYES "Meredead"

LEAVES' EYES "Meredead"

Great news for LEAVES’ EYES fans!

The new LEAVES’ EYES record is called “Meredead”.

Producer Alexander Krull is doing the final mix of “Meredead” at Mastersound Studio.

The artwork was done by Stefan Heilemann.

“Meredead” will be released on the 22nd of April 2011 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland! More streetdates will follow soon!

Singer Liv Kristine comments: “As we began composing the first song ideas for our fourth full-length album, all of us were very eager to take another step in strengthening both the individual sound and concept of Leaves’ Eyes, like we have done album by album. Along with the song-writing process, I made up my mind about the songs’ themes, and drowned myself in different sources of literature. Some songs clearly needed lyrics rooted in northern history and culture, as well as having mystical themes. Being an Old-English fan, I decided to write some of the lyrics in Old-English, which of course included further studies of grammatical and phonetic knowledge, which I really enjoyed doing. Next to modern English and Old-English, some songs are sung in traditional Norwegian, to keep their strong individuality and focus on certain themes from special genres in Norwegian traditional singing. The album is given the title “Meredead”, as one of the songs on the album. It is my own word-creation (at least I haven’t found it in a dictionary yet), and it may mean both “dead by/in the sea”, or “the mortal or killing sea”. In my lyrics you will find traditional themes from Viking literature and Norwegian song tradition, moreover, tales from the Irish isles, some from already existing sources, some made up myself. Sometimes you will hear about men going on adventures, some ending up drowing in the sea, their wives, evil witches, three-headed trolls, or spell-bound princesses, as well as marble halls and blood-thirsty creatures. I allowed myself more freedom for the concept of “Meredead”, telling a number of different stories, real, mystical or sometimes maybe even both.”

WACKEN 2008

October 14th, 2008

Wacken Open Air 2008

Once again tens of thousands of lunatic metal freaks travelled from all over the world to the small German village located in the middle of the beautiful northern German countryside. The small peaceful Wacken literally goes upside down when nearly 80.000 conquer the village during one weekend in a year. Wacken Open Air celebrated its 19th birthday from the 31st of July to the 2nd of August, whose biggest headliner ever in the history of Wacken was Iron Maiden. Despite Iron Maiden being the biggest name on the bill, however there were tons of other interesting and fascinating names.

Brat: The mass convergence of catholic youth in Sydney for World Youth Day the week Ray and I left brought a smile to my face and a feeling of warmth as I realised it wouldn’t be long until I was part of a similar pilgrimage but to Hamburg Germany and with two major differences—where Sydney was awash with colourful youth, Hamburg would be invaded by a swarm of black; and the trolley suitcases carrying clothing would instead be trolleys full of beer; songs of the gospel would be replaced by metal anthems. They came to worship at the cross—we to worship at the flaming longhorn but we all would display our nations’ flags proudly.

Tickets for W:O:A 2008 sold phenomenally fast. The special edition X-mas pack with extra goodie bag sold out before I could take a long breath after my 2007 trip. By February the official festival ticket seller was “SOLD OUT”. Suddenly the ebay market was flooded with tickets with one ticket reaching a record price of 800 British Pounds—obscene. Even in July with less than 1 month before the festival, there was an average of 5 new listings a day for tickets, which nullified all “SOLD OUT” credibility. (Brat)
