Sirenia
An Elixir for Existence (Napalm Records)

By: Mike SOS

Hot off the heels of bands like Nightwish and Lacuna Coil, Sirenia's AN ELIXIR FOR EXISTENCE take the female-fronted Gothic metal approach. Complete with symphonic choruses, growling male utterances, angelic female lead throat work, and the kind of keyboard overlays and rhythmic chugging you'd only find in this genre of metal, Sirenia's nine-track dish isn't breaking any new ground, but does provide an ample alternative to the aforementioned outfits. If you dig lush arrangements with a Goth-metal flare, this disc will suit you just fine.
