Big bang, space travels, black holes, singularity, aliens, stars colliding and the inevitable end of universe – the solo debut from the internationally praised metal singer Linnéa Vikström spans all the way from current science to the eternal, philosophical questions regarding the beginning, the end and life beyond our own planet. As the singer for the Swedish symphonic metal phenomenon Therion, Vikström already has fans around the world. But when she makes her solo debut as QFT (Quantum Field Theory) we get to meet a completely new side of the beloved singer. Live In Space is a dynamic and musically diversified theme album about the universe, where the 10 tracks are beautifully bound together by Linnéa's enormous vocal range and clear vision.
Under the supervision of legendary Swedish sound engineer Lennart Östlund (ABBA, Led Zeppelin), Live In Space was basically recorded completely live. Together with the musicians Georg Härnsten Egg (drums), Jonathan Olsson (bass) and Mano Lewys (guitar), Vikström only needed a few recordings per track. That the album – apart from some additional choirs – was recorded live can't be heard when you listen to the result. On the contrary, Live In Space sounds like the product of immense and costly studio sessions. It's probably not what you expected from Linnéa Vikström. But when the singer from Therion makes her solo debut as QFT, with an album wrapped in Lennart Östlund's marvelous vintage sound, she crushes every border and totally exceeds every expectation
