Selene Announces New Album

Hailing from Northern Ireland, the symphonic power metal band Selene is set to release second album "The Ravages of Time" on June 23rd.

Since forming in 2013, Selene has previously released two EPs and debut album "The Forgotten," followed by a series of shows across Ireland to support the release, including a main stage appearance at Ireland’s biggest metal festival The Siege of Limerick.

"The Ravages of Time" continues to develop the sound Selene established on that debut release, showcasing the angelic soprano voice of Shonagh Lyons along with epic orchestration and heavy riffs, while also taking a more mature direction that is sure to satisfy fans of bands such as Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Kamelot and Serenity.

Band founder and main songwriter John Connor had the following to say: "‘Ravages of Time is a much more ambitious release than the first album I think. Stylistically we have gone to more extremes than before, with the album as a whole being faster and heavier than previous releases and leaning more on our Power Metal roots, but on the other side of the scale, there are songs such as ‘This Life’ which is much softer and emotionally driven than any previous songs. We spent a year non-stop working on this release and I don’t think it will disappoint." More...
