SIRENIA - Announces Their Tenth Studio Album, New Single And Video Released

The Nordic female fronted symphonic/gothic metal institution Sirenia have announced that their tenth studio album entitled Riddles, Ruins & Revelations will be released via Napalm Records on 12th February 2021. Now the band also revealed the first single and bewitching official video "Addiction No.1", which you can watch in the player below.

The French-Norwegian quartet combines a heavy symphonic/gothic sound with modern influences, which their most recent record, Arcane Astral Aeons (2018), is proof of. This time, Sirenia offer an exciting new twist to their songs, spicing them with electronic vibes, but never losing sight of their musical core. Riddles, Ruins & Revelations was produced, mixed and mastered by the Sirenia mastermind Morten Veland himself – which marks his first time doing so.

Morten Veland about "Addiction No. 1": "This is our first single taken from the upcoming album. Musically I feel that this song really shows a modernised and new side of Sirenia. I find the song very catchy, but heavy at the same time. Furthermore we have given the electronic elements a bigger role in this song. We hope you'll enjoy it!"

With Riddles, Ruins & Revelations, Sirenia, around mastermind, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and producer Morten Veland, remains as true to their album title word-play as they do to their dedication to symphonic soundscapes, drawing the listener into a pounding narrative about the darkest aspects of life. All eleven songs accumulate step by step to an integral sound artwork, where the versatile mezzo soprano voice of singer Emmanuelle Zoldan always shines in high-profile. In addition, there are many enchanting, instrumental surprises lurking on the way that absolutely need to be discovered.

Morten Veland on the album: "Riddles, Ruins & Revelations is Sirenia's tenth studio album. The album is very diverse, as a Sirenia album should be. There's a lot of material that shows the band from a new side, and there is lots of material that is to be expected from the band musically. All in all the album will take the listeners through a journey that will cover both familiar and unexplored musical landscapes. We hope that you will enjoy the journey." Link
