Best Sirenia album by Far
This is my favorite Sirenia album, as well as gothic metal album. It blends not only brutality, but a sort of subtle gentleness and darkness. It's the sort of music that comes with darkness, love, hate, and mystery. It's true music of the nightfall. It blends choirs, death growls, soft female vocals, and rich lyrics in a whole gothic metal explosion. It seems that it starts out with outstanding epicness in "Meridian", to nostalgic beauty, softness, and hopelessness in "In Sumerian Haze." The tracks that stand out most to me are the folky beats of "Sister Nightfall", the great opener, "Meridian," The mysterious spooky "On The Wane", and the great dark brutality of "At Sixes and Sevens." But the best track for me is the soft and subtle, "In Sumerian Haze." It's filled with such love, simplicity, delicacy, emotion, and a sense of foreboding hopelessness that tears you apart with its little lyrics, soft female vocals, acoustic guitar and violin. It all leads down to this song, and it's by the far the best way to end this gothic metal explosion masterpiece.
An awesome album. Its hard to pick favorites but In a Manica, Manic Aeon are high on the list. I hope he returns back to this style, its better in my opinion.
From an 80's guy...
I grew up in the 80's listening to Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, The Doors, The Beattles, 80's pop, then Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc. Not too long ago, when I started looking for something new and different, I came across Sirenia's Sister Nightfall, which became my new favorite song for a while. I've even taken a short trip or two down the interstate in order to play it loudly in the car without disturbing the neighbors. Beautiful! The rest of the album is great as well. I've tried other Goth Metal, but the other bands just can't compare to Sirenia when they had this particular singer.
