Two years after “Dim Days Of Dolor“ mastermind Morten Veland presents the ninth SIRENIA album: “Arcane Astral Aeons” once more reflects the Norwegian’s love for title alliterations and succeeds in infusing the darkest night with the brightest colors. Who could resist a symphonic, unbridled opener like “In Styx Embrace”?
Singer Emmanuelle Zoldan‘s ethereal mezzo-soprano voice connects all 11 varied and spirited compositions: the insanely melodic “Into The Night” impressively showcases her abilities and flows into the catchy “Love Like Cyanide” that’s not even afraid to employ a small handful of black metal trademarks. Danish producer legend Jacob Hansen managed to harmonize SIRENIA‘s more soothing side with edgy metal sounds and delivers a perfectly balanced wild ride. The most compelling release so far courtesy of Morten Veland!
