I ordered this before release as I'd gradually come to like Morten Veland's band. I was hoping it was going to be as good as previous albums but I never imagined it would be THIS good. It just oozes gothic atmosphere and melody. It will take something special to shift these songs out of my head. Every one is a corker.

The label on the CD read something like "A perfect fusion of pop/metal/goth" and that sums it up pretty well. It sounds like a cross between Abba and the Sisters of Mercy. If that sounds horrific, don't worry. The result is amazing. There are plenty of crunching guitars, choral arrangements, strings, growls, and, more so on this CD, driving bass.

This is without doubt Sirenia's best album to date. It continues in a similar style to "Nine Destinies..." but the intensity of everything is just turned up several notches. Of particular note is the "Sirenia Choir", who backed some tracks on the last CD and took centre stage on the song "Seven Keys..." On 13th Floor the choral arrangements are great and the choir really shines.

This time round Spanish singer Ailyn is the chosen female vocalist/new recruit. She has a good voice and fits in well but so far I think I preferred Monika Pedersen for her gothic sounds. Ailyn, who apparently did well on the Spanish version of X Factor, has a more pop oriented vocal but she does have a beautiful voice, looks good and can belt out the lyrics. And speaking of lyrics, Morten must have some disturbing dreams, he seems to be obsessed with doors and keys for some reason?!

Point of interest - Ailyn is now Sirenia's fourth singer in as many full albums. For me this is beginning to add to the appeal of the band - every CD has a unique identity but all are recognisably Sirenia.

Before we start, you must understand that prior to hearing this album, I knew nothing about Sirenia. It was a bit of an impulse buy after hearing the latest single on Kerrang TV, however, unlike most impulse buys, I actually enjoyed it. Also, because of this, I will not be able to compare it to any of Sirenia's previous albums, I am judging it on it's own! Anyway, time for a track by track run through:

The Path to Decay - This is the track that I heard that pursuaded me to buy the album. It's a solid track with some great guitar riffing and powerful double-bass drumming. It also introduces Sirenia fans to new signer Ailyn who I gather, was not on any of their previous albums. It has a powerful chorus and a nice solo. 8/10

Lost in Life - After a beautiful piano intro reminisent of Nightwish, a rather melodic song ensues with some beautiful, angelic vocals from Ailyn. This is also single-worthy material and has a sing-along-anthemic chorus and another reasonable solo. 8/10

The Mind Maelstrom - This song begins with a choir and then trails into some keyboards with Ailyn singing beautifully accross it. An extremley peaceful song even with the reasonable anthemic chorus backed up by the choir. However, that soon changes when the double-pedals kick in and some growled/screamed vocals by main instrumentalist Morten Veland start. I like these vocals as it's a real contrast to Ailyn's voice. 7/10

The Seventh Summer - This song opens with a rather orchestral intro that perfectly suges into some really heavy guitars and drums. It contains a rather melodic chorus filled with double-pedals and sing-a-long lines.

OK, how can I describe how good this is this.. I hadn't bought a metal album in about 20 years until recently, and stumbled across a link to Path to Decay on a website. I'd never even heard of symphonic / goth metal before. In my day the good stuff was Slayer , Metallica et al - 'gothic' music of the late eighties never seemed to be heavy enough. Some 'crossover' had started with bands like 'Candlemass' (doom metal) that, crucially, used harmonic minor / arabic-scale style 3-semitone-gap scales in their melodies, part of which gave them their great sound, a fact lost on many reviewer of a symphonic metal song. 'Nightfall' was a superb 'gothic' sounding doom metal album, but there I thought the genre petered out. I have friends with older kids who listen to stuff like Slipknot and Sum 41 - we put the CDs on once for a laugh at a party and I was shocked at how awfully bland, and frankly, tame, it all was. So I presumed that's the way heavy music was going. So you can hardly imagine my delight when I stumbled on all this symphonic metal recently. I have now been busy listening to and evaluating upwards of a hundred symphonic / goth metal bands out there, and there are some great bands - Nightwish, Amberian Dawn, Within Temptation, Theatre of Tragedy etc. But no matter how good these bands are - and I have to say many of them are superb - no album of the genre I've yet sampled is quite as good as this offering from Sirenia. Often when I buy an album , I like the majority of the songs, but find there's usually one or two turkeys spoiling things that I have to skip through on the CD.Read more ›
