SERENE DARK - Premieres Track From Upcoming Album

Canadian symphonic black/death metal band Serene Dark, who will on 17th July release their new album entitled Enantiodromia, originally slated for a 5th of June street date, due to the Covid 19 pandemic the band has rescheduled for a later date. In anticipation of the album's release, the band is unleashing it's single "Trance Of Disintegration" and you can hear it in the player below.

Enantiodromia is dark, entrancing, and orchestral while maintaining the key elements of death and black metal. Overall, the album explores the confrontation between the shadow aspect of the personality and the integration of it into the self to create wholeness. Influenced by philosophy, stoicism, hermeticism, and the occult. The album, lyrically, is a journey towards individuation by the exploration of human darkness and transforming that pain into something tangible and meaningful. In essence- to lose one's self entirely to reach perfection.

The band adds: "The aim of the song is to hit you right out of the gate with a lightning-fast drumroll into a heavy guitar chugging rhythm with choir and string ensemble orchestrations. The idea behind this was greatly inspired by "Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse" by Dimmu Borgir."

Under the name Endemise, the band released Far From The Light (2013) and Anathema (2016), but now with the new name, Serene Dark has made a refreshing start with elements of the previous band still lingering, but taking the songs and style to a new level on this record and experimented with various instruments and vocal styles. This album sets a new caliber and standard for Serene Dark. Link
