sirenia is a norwegian gothic/symphonic metal band founded by morten veland after leaving tristania. i do only know the first two albums of sirenia, so i will just write about these.
sirenia continues the style of early tristania: combining gothic and symphonic metal, with elements from death metal, into an easy digestable, but nonetheless beautiful stream of music. a good example is sister nightfall from their 2002 debut album at sixes and sevens:
two more excellent songs from the same album are on the wane and sixes and sevens. the former is, similar to sister nightfall, fast and catching:
the third song, at sixes and sevens, is more on the symphonic side.
the last song i want to present is seven sirens and a silver tear from their second album, an elixir for existence. a purely instrumental song, mostly piano. a wonderful piece…
