Sirenia – Arcane astral aeons
Release date: 26-10-2018
Label: Napalm records
Two years after “Dim Days Of Dolor” mastermind Morten Veland presents the ninth Sirenia album:
“Arcane Astral Aeons” once more reflects the Norwegian`s love for title alliterations and succeeds in infusing the darkest night with the brightest colors.
Who could resist a symphonic, unbridled opener like “In Styx Embrace”?
Singer Emmanuelle Zoldan`s ethereal mezzo-soprano voice connects all 11 varied and spirited compositions:
the insanely melodic “Into The Night”impressively showcases her abilities and flows into the catchy “Love Like Cyanide” that`s not even afraid to employ a small handful of black metal trademarks.
Danish producer legend Jacob Hansen managed to harmonize Sirenia`s more soothing side with edgy metal sounds and delivers a perfectly balanced wild ride. The most compelling release so far courtesy of Morten Veland !
