When Sirenia came to the U.S. for the first time last year, founder Morten told me that they hoped to be back around spring in 2018. Well, as luck would have it, Sirenia came back to do a headlining tour of the U.S. in the spring!
I was looking forward to this show as the band are promoting, "Dim Days of Dolor" and getting ready to head back into the studio later this year to record the follow up.
The band's symphonic metal style is still rooted in melody, emotion, and power. Lead vocalist Emma has one of the purest voices in metal. Her voice soars with character and takes the audience on a magical ride with every song she sings.
Morten and the boys paint the metal landscape with ease and proficiency. "Ashes to Ashes" sounded particularly wonderful as did the set closer, "The Other Side".
Sirenia have a Pledge Music campaign going right now. They are busy through July getting the new album recorded, with summer festival appearances as well. They have some great Pledge gifts so be sure to check out their campaign.
This band deserves a larger audience here in the U.S. Hopefully they can get on a tour next year with that will put them in front of an appreciative audience to widen their fan base. I personally would like to see them do a run with Delain and/or Within Temptation.
A powerful set on a Tuesday night from Sirenia at Studio Seven. The tour is past the half way mark. Catch them when they come to your town - you'll be glad you did!
