Sirenia Reveals New Album Details

Mastermind Morten Veland has just one thing in mind for Sirenia in 2016: pure and utter melancholy. Almost two years after the release of "The Seventh Life Path," this Norwegian is ready to unleash his latest dark vision of gothic and symphonic metal that shuns the light.

"Dim Days of Dolor" is the title of the upcoming album bearing artwork created by Gyula Havancsák. Morten Veland comments:

"It is always a great feeling to have completed a new album. With eight Sirenia albums under the belt some people ask me if it is difficult to keep up the enthusiasm at this point. But that's not problematic at all, I have never been so enthusiastic about any album before. With this album we have reached new heights that seemed out of reach in the past.

"I feel that the countless hours we have put into this album really have paid off in the end. This album is also the most diverse album we've done to date, also the performances has never been better. I can't wait to share this album with all the Sirenia fans and metal heads out there. This album will mark a special point in the band's career, I am sure." More...
