European symphonic metallers SERENITY have released a teaser for their upcoming fourth full-length album, War Of Ages, out on March 22nd in Germany/Austria/Switzerland, March 25th throughout Europe, with an expected March/April release for North America and Asia.
The album teaser follows:
The new album will introduce a major change in the band’s music and lineup. Since their second album, Serenity did add female voices to its songs, had different guests to perform them live and among them was Clementine Delauney. Going on tour together, the band realized her voice, personality and stage performance was bringing something special to the band’s universe and thought she should be present on the new record. The idea evolved with time… why not have a permanent female voice in the band? And it seems they had found the perfect one both on professional and personal levels. So it came up somehow naturally that Clementine should not be considered “guest” anymore.
Clémentine Delauney is now a full member of Serenity. Thus War Of Ages welcomes Clementine’s voice on lead, backing and choir parts, completing the music with a constant feminine presence.
Says the band: “The band has the will to make its music richer on the vocal side; this is a start of a new approach! Serentiy will explore and use the unlimited musical possibilities of those two outstanding voices, to start with, and War Of Ages is the perfect transition record between what Serenity was and what it will become in the coming years! We hope you share our excitement!”
War Of Ages tracklisting:
‘Wings Of Madness’
‘The Art Of War’
‘For Freedom’s Sake’
‘Age Of Glory’
‘Symphony For The Quiet’
‘Legacy Of Tudors’
‘Fairytales’ (ballad version – LTD bonustrack)
‘Love Of My Life’ (LTD bonustrack)
“While staying true to all Serenity trademarks such as symphonic orchestras, heavy rhythms, melodic vocals and bombastic choirs, we also brought in some new elements in form of various new sounds in the Serenity universe and a constant implementation of female vocals supporting outstanding singer Georg Neuhauser. More on that in a couple of days…
The amazing artwork was produced by Seth Siro Anton, who was already responsible for the art of the band’s debut album. It likely is his best work to date and the whole cover figurine is just as impressive as the LTD close up.”
