Liv Kristine presents the official video for “River Of Diamonds” (feat. Fernando Ribeiro), the title track of the new studio album which was released on 21.04. by Metalville Records.
Fernando Ribeiro, singer of the Portuguese cult band “Moonspell”, takes the song to a new, magical level as a duet partner of Liv Kristine. The catchy melody, carried by two of the greatest voices of the Gothic Metal scene, succeeds in captivating its listeners right from the first bars.
Liv Kristine about the “River Of Diamond” video: “I’ve know Fernando since touring together in 1996. Through the years he’s been a great, supportive friend and inspiration to me. It’s an honor having Fernando as my duet partner on “River of Diamonds”. Moreover, for the making of this clip, he had some brilliant ideas which I completed with the superb help from my dear husband, Michael. The clip was filmed in Portugal and Switzerland and edited in Cyprus by our creative friend Andreas/Dark Star Vid. Prod.”
„River Of Diamonds”, the sixth solo album by the queen of Scandinavian Gothic Metal, continues on the path set by the EP “Have Courage Dear Heart” ( 2021), which received great international acclaim.
All tracks on the new album were composed by Liv’s long-time friend Tommy Olsson (Theatre of Tragedy, Long Night) at his Black Rider Records studio in Tau, near Liv Kristine’s birthplace of Stavanger in Norway. .
Carefully spending time with the compositions that kept coming out of Tommy’s studio in 2021 and 2022 felt just right, like a yin-yang experience: music & pre-mix (Tommy O.), own lyrics and melodies, the finishing touches (mix & master by Eroc) and visuals (photos by M. Rohbach) merged into exactly the album Liv Kristine had passionately longed for.
“Each song follows a path of strong authenticity and unbound creativity, which is my innermost and first criterion since “Theatre Of Tragedy” (1995), “Deus Ex Machina” (1998) and “Lovelorn” (Leaves’ Eyes). The lifeline that flows through all twelve compositions unveils a heart-based personal path, a sense of deeper truth and a soul vision of pure bliss consciousness – an eternal river of diamonds.” (Liv Kristine)
