SIRENIA Completes Work On New Album

Norwegian/Spanish female-fronted gothic metal band SIRENIA has issued the following update:

"The new album is now completed. We just received the finished mastered product from Antfarm Studios, and we have to admit we are mighty proud of the result. Expect a release in February next year. Next thing coming up now is photo sessions with photographer Emile M. E. Ashley, while the cover artwork will be done by Jan Yrlund."

The new SIRENIA 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.

Fan-filmed video footage of SIRENIA — featuring the band's latest addition, 25-year-old Spanish singer Ailyn (born: Pilar Giménez García) — performing the song "My Mind's Eye" on July 10, 2008 at the Masters Of Rock festival in Vizovice, Czech Republic can be viewed below (clip uploaded by YouTube user "budeto").

SIRENIA recruited Ailyn as the replacement for Monika Pedersen, who left the group last fall 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 latest album, "Nine Destinies and a Downfall", entered the German Media Control chart in March 2007 at position No. 54.
