When asked about the new album lyrical content

"This album is a little bit more towards this mystical and magical objects and people and places. As you know our previous album for example, 'the last Viking' was a little bit more focused on the historical side of things and it was a concept album battles and everything. So this (Album) is a little bit away from that topic which was also I think a nice refreshing thing for us to do a little bit something different. It's not a concept album but of course 'Myths of Fate' it builds around these magical and mystical topics."


When asked if all the fans today are comfortable with her taking over leads vocals after 6 years from Liv Kristine

"You have to ask the fans. For me personally I felt very accepted from the beginning. For me it was very clear that I needed to come to the band as myself. I'm a completely different Vocalist, different kind of performer. For me, it was taking the time and trying to do my best in the situation back then. And of course now many years later we have three albums and whatnot we've been touring over the world. It's a different position now for me but I never really thought about it like that. When we played live, which was like two weeks after I joined the band it was always great and I never had any any really negative things."




When asked how her vocals differs from Liv Kristine

"I can only speak again from my side how I see it but uh I would say that probably my voice is a bit stronger. In the sense of my forte is not singing with a very light and head voicy head stuff that's not my forte. And of course I have a classical education. I don't want to be classified as only one thing or another thing uh and even on this album I think I'm showing that versatility using my voice uh but that yes certain things will never be my forte. The whole timber of the voice is different."
