The symphonic metal icons effortlessly merge 80s rock and synthwave elements on their immense 11th studio album!
International symphonic metal force SIRENIA offers another surprise and presents their third and final new single, entitled “Wintry Heart”, before unveiling their eleventh studio album, ‘1977′, this Friday, May 26 via Napalm Records! Ranking at the top of their genre for more than 20 years, the band led by mastermind, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and producer Morten Veland gathered worldwide press coverage with their previous releases and toured throughout Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia and Australia.
Fast-paced new single “Wintry Heart” gives a bittersweet taste of early 90’s vibes, successfully combined with roaring guitars and synth melodies, exploring a new style like never before. The single comes with an energetic performance music video.
Morten Veland on “Wintry Heart”:
“‘Wintry Heart’ is a powerful, melodic and more up-tempo song. I also find it to be very energetic – it’s definitely one of the songs on the ‘1977′ album that I really look forward to performing live. The chorus also has a great hook line. I hope you’ll enjoy it!”

Captivating album opener “Deadlight” is followed by “Wintry Heart”, and “Nomadic” that represents SIRENIA’s characteristic dark and heavy side as shredding guitar riffs alternate with playful interludes while relentless drums and symphonic electronic elements go hand in hand with one another.
“A Thousand Scars” marks a totally new fusion for SIRENIA, as heavy symphonic tunes dressed as remarkable rock riffs and poppy rhythms dance together with the feathery light vocals of Emmanuelle. With the eerie and epic tunes of “Fading to the Deepest Black”, the song is reminiscent of their last album, ‘Riddles, Ruins & Revelations’ (2021).
Kicking off with vertiginous blast beats and a mesmerizing performance by Emmanuelle Zoldan, a warm vocal interlude by Morten Veland supports the song’s stunning atmosphere before it leads into an impressive guitar solo. Following their operatic symphonic highs, the heavy side of SIRENIA is not forgotten and appears especially towards the end of their 11th record.
