Serenity Tells The Tale Of "Lionheart"

Austrian symphonic metal act Serenity has teamed up with MetalUnderground.com to premiere the new song "Lionheart," the title track of the upcoming new album due to drop on October 27th, 2017 via Napalm Records. Pre-orders can be made at this location.

On the album, the band states: "Hear us roar!! After we spread Da Vinci's 'Codex Atlanticus' all over the world, which you made one of our most successful records ever, we will now feed your yearnings with another historical masterpiece: 'Lionheart!' Strong, powerful symphonic power metal hymns mixed with emotions from the depth of our souls - follow us into this new era and show us your Lionheart!!!"

One thing is for sure, the band has brought back a key instrument and made it front and center for "Lionheart" - the guitar. Guitarist Christian Hermsdörfer unleashes a riff barrage over the course of the album, but the band still maintains all the symphonic elements fans have come to love. However, with "Lionheart" comes great power, but not from behind...it punches your straight in the face.

Sunburst Out Of ProgPower USA XVIII

ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston announced that Greek power/progressive act Sunburst was dropped from the XVIII roster, due to a VISA issues, in which a particular USCIS agent made an unusual and specific "all-encompassing" request for evidence that was impossible to satisfy in the time left. Harveston also announced that Brazil's Daydream XI will replace Sunburst.

Harveston posted the following announcement: "It is with extreme frustration and disappointment I must announce that Sunburst (Greece) will not be performing at ProgPower USA XVIII. Despite having provided the same type and kind of evidence that has obtained approvals for not only ProgPower USA bands over the last decade, but for well over one hundred other bands submitted by Marc/Play America, one agent at the USCIS (United States Customs & Immigration Services) has deemed our evidence insufficient. Given the all-encompassing breadth of that specific agent's demands (more than ever have been seen by either Marc or myself) in an RFE (Request for Evidence) in our careers, there is literally no hope of satisfying those demands. Sunburst, Marc, & I have all agreed it would be pointless to continue to fight this hopeless battle.

"Rest assured I have every intention of having Sunburst back as soon as possible. They are an amazing band and deserve to be on the ProgPower USA stage. The band is understandably disappointed, but also understand the circumstances cannot be helped.

"I want to calm the fears of those concerned about other bands performing this year. I have already obtained visa approvals for all bands I am specifically responsible for performing on Friday and Saturday. Sunburst was the last band we were waiting on for visa approval. All bands that have been submitted for Wednesday and Thursday so far have also been approved. More...

Serenity Announces Split With Guitarist

Austrian symphonic power metal act Serenity announced the departure of guitarist Thomas Buchberger and vocalist Clémentine Delauney from the band. The band has decided to proceed without a permanent female singer, returning to its roots. Buchberger's permanent replacement has not yet been announced and the band has begun work on the follow up to "War of Ages" (see review here).

In a post on the band's Facebook page it states: "As a new year begins we took the time to look back on the past year and came up with new ideas, new inspiration and a fresher look over what Serenity is and should be. Since this common thinking lead us to some decisions, we have to share them with you.

"First of all, as you noticed, Serenity doesn’t have a permanent keyboard player and won’t have. However, as we enjoy playing live more than over samples, we have the chance that from time to time, Mario is still willing to join us on tour. When he is not available, we can rely on a great friend of our band, Franz-Josef who will step in with the incredible talent that is his own. So there will be gigs in 2015 either with one or the other but both matter to us and we appreciate their dedication very much.

"You must also have noticed that Tom officially said he was not going to perform any gig in 2014. He had to focus on his family and his job and for a time we would be honest to say that he had left the band. However, recently we heard from him that, if joining back on stage is yet not to be considered, he would still be willing to take part of the band’s life behind the scenes…and this means a lot to us.

"When all was still uncertain regarding the guitar player position, we were very lucky to have Cris with us on all gigs that were and are scheduled. His energy and will to take part of the band’s history is something we are very grateful for and we are looking forward to keeping sharing the stage with him as he is meant to remain our live guitar player still for a quite while.
