Ok, another one of my favorite bands. I have to say I'm not a huge fan of Njord, but I really love their music.

And their lovely singer Liv Kristine, of course. Very Happy

My favorite song is For Amelie.

Oh yes, they're lovely! I especially adore "A Winter's Poem" and "Senses Capture" (almost two bonus tracks, found on the Elegy EP, but I discovered Leaves' Eyes through them on Pandora back when ...), "Farewell Proud Men" and "Misseri", and I like the "Njord" album quite a lot, too, actually. Especially the title track is quite epic. Thematically, the incoherence of the album bothers me a little, though, while "Vinland Saga" had, like, one of the coolest concepts evarr. Wink

I don't care for Njord either. Vinland Saga is my favorite.

I first heard of them on a podcast that no longer gets done...which I think the last episode was like 2 years ago. XD But it was a FFM episode and "Farewell Proud Men" was on it and it just liked hooked me in.

I got quite a few favorite songs though. Most of them are off of Vinland Saga or Legend Land. Very Happy

I like them...I have all their CDs, and I've seen them live several times..
And I just bought Liv Kristine's new CD...does that fit in this topic as well?

I'm keeping my CD...LOL...not gonna give it to anybody...you could only have the songs...or send me money and I'll get you a copy of the cd..lol

Oh, and I just read a review on amazon about her CD, and they refer to her as the "ex-singer of Theatre of Tragedy" and talk about her "metal past"...saying that her solo CD is not metal... I just wonder...did they forget that she is the singer of Leaves' Eyes?

Lol! I meant the songs. Pleeease. Very Happy You can PM me the linky. I really really love her solo stuff. <3 <3 <3 Coming Home is my favorite song of hers.

And um, that's odd that they're still tying her to ToT... and also forgot the giant musical leap ToT made... maybe they don't consider LE metal? I don't see why they wouldn't... maybe we should ask Almagest. *glances at him*

Hmm, perhaps they simply forgot it. I'd say Leaves' Eyes are at least partly metal ... more metal than Tarja's solo work to be sure. Razz Of course, it always depends on the song you're talking about, Leaves' Eyes even have fully acoustic songs, after all, where I don't think significant metal elements can be found even in the structures.

Talking about ToT... they've invited her to guest in their last show ever but she'll be touring the US with Kamelot. Neutral
I wish Liv could be part of this show so bad. I also can't believe ToT are throwing the towel. I love their last album and I think they still have a lot to offer.

That's a pity, but if I'm not totally mistaken, she still holds a grudge against their ex-band mates due to the way she was fired (sound familiar, somehow?), so she won't be going out of her way to attend the show, and I can see how a US tour with Kamelot is a million times more important for her.

Actually she still talks to their male singer and the keyboard player. She says that the one she dislikes is the drummer.
Anyway, here is where she says about ToT's end: http://www.bravewords.com/news/146234

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVEEEEE Leaves' Eyes and Liv Kristine, she's one of my favorite singers ever I love you
Got their three albums and I'm planning to get the EPs in the future *stares at Christine* Laughing .
I think that considering Theatre Of Tragedy no longer exists, Liv should perform her songs from that era again, I mean: otherwise "Der Tanz Der Schatten", "Seraphic Deviltry", "Venus", "Dying I Only Feel Apathy" ... will cease to exists, they need to be played live Razz .
My favorite songs form her Leaves' Eyes work are:
"The Holy Bond", "Through Our Veins", "Tale Of The Sea Maid", "Misseri (Turn Green Meadows Into Gray)", "Senses Capture", "Heal", "The Dream", "My Destiny", "Elegy" and "Temptation" (but I love them all actually).
"Njord" is my favorite one of their albums.
From her solo career I only got her first albums, couldn't get the latest yet, but I enjoy very much listening to "Take Good Care", "Huldra", "Good Vibes Bad Vibes", "Fake A Smile", "Trapped In Your Labyrinth" and "Over The Moon".
From Theatre Of Tragedy... love them all, but I'd choose:
"Der Tanz Der Schatten", "Der Spiegel", "Dying I Only Feel Apathy", "Sweet Art Thou", "For Whom The Moon Doth Shine", "Hollow Hearted, Heart Departed", "Venus", "Poppæa", "Siren" and "A Hamlet For A Slothful Vassal".
"Velvet Darkness They Fear" is carved deep into my heart I love you

Yes Chris, but there are other country flags on the video as well, two more at least (Mexico and Brasil), too bad I didn't attended their first (and only) gig here, I could have been featured on the video Razz

It's a live video of the song "Legend Land"... there are three flags on stage, I swear! Laughing . They're featured after the bridge, when the chorus starts again close to the end.

One guy there has really long hair...

That would be Alex Krull, Liv's husband and mane-iac extraordinaire, who also provides the male vocals.

I forgot to mention that I have Liv's first solo-album too. It's more goth-pop than anything but excellent. I *love* "In the Heart of Juliet", and "Take Good Care" is incredibly cute. I enjoy this album quite a lot, in fact.

Yeah..for some reason I thought it is Mathias, but then I looked at photos and noticed that he has short hair....so then I thought it has to be Alex, but I got insecure then and just wrote that it was a band member...lol
