Norwegian/Spanish symphonic gothic metallers SIRENIA have inked a deal with Napalm Records.
Says Nadir Amrioui, A&R at Napalm Records: "[SIRENIA mainman/guitarist] Morten [Veland] is an amazing songwriter and with his band SIRENIA they still belong to the top of gothic metal. We can barely wait to check out the first new songs and to release the new album in early 2015."
Adds Morten: "We are very excited about having signed a new deal with Napalm Records. This is where SIRENIA began our career 13 years ago, so it feels like a homecoming in many ways.
"Looking forward to keep on bringing our music out to all the metalheads around the world together with Napalm. There is much more to come."
SIRENIA's sixth studio album, "Perils Of The Deep Blue", sold around 900 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 20 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Perils Of The Deep Blue" entered the official German chart at position No. 50 — the band's highest German chart entry ever — and the Swiss chart at No. 43.
"Perils Of The Deep Blue" was released on June 28, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was produced by Morten Veland, while the mixing and mastering was handled by Endre Kirkesola at Dub Studios in Oslo.
In 2008, SIRENIA recruited singer Ailyn (born: Pilar Giménez García) as the replacement for Monika Pedersen, who left the group a year earlier after only one album due to "musical differences."
Ailyn was best known as a former contestant on the Spanish version of "The X Factor", the biggest television talent competition in Europe.
