Biography of Sirenia:

Somehow, leading Norway’s Tristania to the top of the goth metal heap wasn’t enough for vocalist/guitarist Morten Veland, who unilaterally seceded from the union in the year 2000 to found a brand-spanking-new though similar-sounding band named Sirenia. Picking up pretty much where he’d left off stylistically, Veland hand-picked compatriots Kristian Gundersen (clean vocals, guitar), Hans Henrik Varland (keyboards), and French singer Fabienne Gondamin to quickly perform on the following year’s At Sixes and Sevens debut. He and Gundersen then found a more permanent support staff in vocalist Henriette Bordvik and drummer Jonathan Perez to work on their 2003 follow-up, An Elixir for Existence. An EP, Sirenian Shores arrived in 2005, followed by the full-length Nine Destinies and a Downfall in 2007.

This is what most consider to be Sirenia's finest hour. As I was working my way backward through their discography I hit some sort of stylistic cut-off point around An Elixir for Existence where I was reminded of how heavy the band was in their earlier days. As such, the group's sophomore album was a great treat, showcasing Veland's unbelievable ability to craft true epics with virtually no outside input to assist him. Sure, there are always saccharine female vocals; but unlike most female-fronted bands who unabashedly live or die by the quality of their front woman, Sirenia was wise to hold it's metallic origins close to heart no matter how awkward the formula may seem at first blush. A tiny stone may only make a small ripple at first, but someday it will be a wave.
