Midnattsol - Liv Kristine Joins Band, New Album In The Making


Midnattsol has a second singer now. It's none other than Liv Kristine of Leaves' Eyes and Theatre Of Tragedy fame. She will now sing right next to her sister Carmen Elise Espenæs in the band. The gothic/folk metallers haven't released a new album since 2011's The Metamorphosis Melody but a new one is in the making. Hear a snippet of a new song with Liv over here. Just a first appetizer.

The band explained: "Some time ago we discussed with Liv that she would support us on our upcoming album as a special guest. Working together, we found out that not only the result is awesome - we also have a lot of fun together. The logical consequence was that we pick up Liv as a permanent member of the band. So she is now the official second singer in Midnattsol.

"We have already recorded Liv as second voice on some songs for the next album. Liv will also have her own parts in some songs, so these songs will be more like a duet of the two sisters. We think the result will blow you away. As Liv is now a permanent band member we plan to play upcoming concerts together with her. We are very happy and it means a lot to us to have also an amazing singer and fantastic person in our Midnattsol family."

They could've wrapped it up better and less cheesy like this: "Liv is unemployed, Liv is Carmen's sister, we co-oped here in the band and that's that.' Jokes aside, I'm curious what it'll come out.

I haven't been impressed with Liv for a long time. I love everything Midnattsol has executed. Hopefully this is a good thing? Best wishes.

Does a second singer mean less guitar work, more Pop and lazy writing? Better fucking not!

"...So she is now the official second singer in Midnattsol."

I think it might be the other way around. It wont take too long for her to take over.

I've always considered Carmen to be superior to LeavesEyes-era-Liv, and now Liv gets to fuck this band up too! -_-
