Returning with their tenth full-length album, Norwegian symphonic Gothic act Sirenia continues both the good work and the alliteration of their last couple of studio outings with their latest release Riddles, Ruins & Revelations (Napalm Records). Operatic vocals, a robust rhythm section, pounding riffs and flighty keyboards dominate proceedings, punctuated by some expert lead guitar work and differing vocal styles. Adorned with thunderous breakdowns or quieter, slower sections each cut remains interesting rather than outstaying its welcome.
As we previously reported Symphonic metallers Sirenia is back with a new album Arcane Astral Aeons this fall via Napalm Records. The follow-up to 2016’s Dim Days Of Dolor marks the band’s second LP to feature French vocalist Emmanuelle Zoldan, who replaced Spanish singer Ailyn Giménez García two years ago. Watch the lyric video for the new single ‘Love Like Cyanide’, now.
