Infernal Masquerade webzine recently conducted an interview with Austrian symphonic melodic metallers SERENITY. The chat can now be streamed using the audio player below.
SERENITY's new video, "The Chevalier", can be viewed below. The song, which features a guest appearance by Ailyn (SIRENIA), comes off the band's third album, "Death & Legacy", which was released on February 25 via Napalm Records. The CD was produced by Oliver Philipps, Jan Vacik, Thomas Buchberger and Georg Neuhauser and it features additional guest appearances by Amanda Somerville (AVANTASIA, EPICA, KISKE/SOMERVILLE) and Charlotte Wessels (DELAIN). The album was mixed and mastered by Jan Vacik at Dreamsound Studios in Munich, Germany. The artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann (LEAVES' EYES, ATROCITY, SONS OF SEASONS) and it "represents the historical based concept dealing with famous characters such as Galileo Galilei, Sir Francis Drake, Marco Polo and many more," acording to the band. "An angel of of death holding the book of time, symbolizing their legacy."

Commented the band: "SERENITY found the perfect female counterpart to lead singer Georg Neuhauser for a song called 'The Chevalier' dealing with Giacomo Casanova. Ailyn from famous Norwegian band SIRENIA sings this duet and will also star as a main character in the upcoming SERENITY music video, ready to launch in January. On the album Ailyn is joined by Charlotte Wessels from Dutch band DELAIN and Amanda Somerville, fairly well known for her appearances on AVANTASIA, EPICA, KISKE... All of them have absolutely beautiful voices and bring a new nuance to this all new SERENITY experience."
In other news, SERENITY has announced the addition of bassist Fabio D'Amore (PATHOSRAY, FAIRYLAND) to the group's ranks.
Bassist Simon Holzknecht recently left SERENITY due to personal reasons.
