A five-minute preview of the songs that will appear on "Vervain", the fifth solo album from Norwegian singer Liv Kristine (LEAVES' EYES, ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY), is available below.
"Vervain" will be released on November 4 in North America and October 27 in Europe via Napalm Records. The CD was once again recorded at Mastersound Studio in Steinheim, Germany — the facility owned by Liv's husband, Alexander Krull (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES) — and is described in a press release as "a spectacular piece of musical art: a rock masterpiece in an incomparable sound, multi-faceted and in every song in another shape between light and darkness."
"Vervain" features a guest appearance by German metal queen Doro Pesch in the song "Stronghold Of Angels". Liv says: "This metal hymn is indeed special to me and Doro's unique voice takes this song to an exceptional emotional level.
"Thank you, Doro, for staying with us, moreover, for the great late-night talks."
