Editorial Reviews

Digipak edition includes two bonus tracks. Perils Of The Deep Blue is the sixth full-length album by the Norwegian gothic metal band Sirenia. The album was produced by Morten Veland himself while the mastering and mixing was done by Endre Kirkesola in Dub Studios in Norway. Veland found the album cover while surfing the internet. He contacted the artist by the name of Anne Stokes and got the permits to use it as a cover.

I am pleased to announce to longtime Sirenia fans that Perils of the Deep Blue is the best Sirenia album since An Elixir for Existence.

More Morten, more thoughtful arrangements, longer, less poppy-songs, and a noticeably more dynamic Ailyn. It's as if Veland heard the siren cries from his fans and took extra time to make sure this album was more like the Sirenia formula of old, which many of us felt was perfect from the very beginning. One look at the running time of the tracks indicates a more progressive effort, with Stille Kom Døden weighing in at a whopping 12:42!

1. Ducere Me In Lucem (3:32)
2. Seven Widows Weep (6:56)
3. My Destiny Coming To Pass (5:15)
4. Ditt Endelikt (6:10)
5. Cold Caress (5:57)
6. Darkling (5:35)
7. Decadence (4:58)
8. Stille Kom Døden (12:42)
9. The Funeral March (5:34)
10. Profound Scars (6:09)
11. A Blizzard Is Storming (4:53)

Total playing time: 67:41

What's nice about this album is that there are lots of refreshing moments that do not sound like recreations of older work (something that I felt a lot of on The Enigma of Life). Just listen to Ditt Endelikt for clean males vocals unlike anything previously from Sirenia. The choruses on this album blend in quite nicely and do not feel pasted in like on the last album(s).

While Ailyn's vocals are certainly more dynamic on this album, there are still a few moments that sound too whiny (esp. in Cold Caress). That is my only complaint. Ailyn is still front and center on vocals, but Morten plays a much greater supportive role when compared to the previous three albums. A solid effort by Sirenia and a step in the right direction for their sound.

Before I start, I should note that I jumped aboard Sirenia when they started exploring the more mainstream aspects of Gothic Metal. 'The 13th Floor' is my all-time favorite album in the genre. 'The Enigma of Life' had the same potential, though it was derailed by some terrible fillers and a horrendous running track order.

With that said, when Ailyn announced that the new album 'Perils of the Deep Blue' would be one for the early fans, I was skeptical. I'm certainly not a fan of their early work. 'Seven Widows Weep,' was chosen as the single. Tell you what, I thought it was an excellent bombastic song. After Forever-quality, perhaps even beating Epica at their own game. Yet, it caught me off-guard, as this was the style I wasn't expecting from Sirenia. I considered backing away from this one, until I heard the second leak 'Ditt Enkelikt.' This was the Sirenia I fell in love with. Simple, yet with a big chorus hook. Perhaps I shouldn't skip this one. That said, I picked up a copy.

The latest from Morten Velund and co. was different than I expected. And I'm sure quite a few may be thrown off the first time they listen to 'Perils of the Deep Blue,' regardless of which side of the Sirenia fence you sit on. Yes, a lot of these songs do share something in common with the Sirenia of the early days. But they used their experience from the mainstream years to cleverly mask little catchy hooks here and there within the artistic qualities of the songs, some of which most listeners may not even catch on to until after the 2nd or 3rd spin. The beauty part is the balance between the two styles of Gothic Metal. You're caught in the middle, not knowing whether to love or hate the album.

Despite "The Path to decay" being my all-time favourite single, this album is awesome! I don't dislike their previous albums, actually I like commercial stuff and enjoyed the albums (but admit "The End of It All" was a BAD single, compared to others.)

I still don't understand why the two last songs are "Bonus tracks" because they are in my favourites. The chorus in "Chains" is epic! It's the first time Mortem and Ailyn both sing simultaneously, and "Blue Collen" is a little gem.

Favourite tracks:
Ducere Me In Lucem
Seven Widows Weep
My Destiny Coming To Pass
Ditt Endelikt
The Funeral March
Chains
Blue Colleen

Just a quick note for anyone considering purchasing the album. The album is excellent, but the MP3 version is missing the bonus tracks. Even if you purchase the CD version with the AutoRip feature, you still do not get the bonus tracks automatically. You have to manually rip them yourselves once you get the disc. Just a heads up to anyone interested in those specifically.

Love all of Sirenia's albums, though I feel the last album had some very weak moments. Perils of the Deep Blue is powerful and much different from any previous work. Ailyn's voice has definitely improved in this album. Fav one so far. Excellent job, Morten.

If you are a fan of Sirenia's first two albums and haven't enjoyed their recent work as much, get this album.

This album opens with tracks that are the best work this band has put out since "An Elixir for Existence." About half way through it returns to music that is more characteristic of the few tracks I enjoyed off "The 13th Floor," which in my opinion is good music but not the GREAT music that made their first two albums my favorite albums of all time.

Thanks for making another awesome album Sirenia! I'd like to see more quality stuff like this release!
