Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the video for "The Path To Decay", the new single from the Norwegian/Spanish female-fronted gothic metal band SIRENIA, can be viewed below. The clip was shot in Gothenburg, Sweden with director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL) of Revolver Film Company. Guitarist Morten Veland said, "We are very satisfied with the end result and [are excited] to share the video with all of you."
"The 13th Floor", the new album from SIRENIA, is available for streaming in its entirety on the group's MySpace page.
"The 13th Floor" will be released on January 23 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was tracked at Sound Suite Studios in France and Stargoth Studios in Norway while the mixing and mastering sessions took place at the Antfarm Studios in Denmark with Tue Madsen. The group says, "Expect a melodic and powerful album in the typical SIRENIA vein. The album features guest appearances by Jan Kenneth Barkved (who also did some guest appearances on our debut, 'At Sixes and Sevens'), French violin player Stephanie Valentin adds to the sound along with the Sirenian choir that has been an important part of our sound since the very beginning."

SIRENIA recruited 26-year-old Spanish singer Ailyn (born: Pilar Giménez García) as the replacement for Monika Pedersen, who left the group in 2007 after only one album due to "musical differences."
Ailyn is best known as a member of the young team in the Spanish version of "The X Factor", the biggest television talent competition in Europe.
SIRENIA's last album, "Nine Destinies and a Downfall", entered the German Media Control chart in March 2007 at position No. 54.
