A bit more complicated than "The Enigma of Life"
on 21 January 2014
For those who felt "The Enigma of Life" was too stripped down, streamlined and simplified, "Perils of the Deep Blue" provides more progressive and experimental elements whilst still remaining melodic. "Seven Widows Weep" is a stunning comeback track, comparable to the band's best. On a couple of occasions, tracks unexpected move into electronic poppy sections before returning to symphonic metal. "Stille Kom Døden" shows that songs don't have to be sung in English to sound impressive. It also shows the virtue of extended instrumental passages. Although not perfect, this is plenty of impressive material here for a Sirenia / symphonic metal fan.
