4e album de SERENITY "War Of Ages", le premier avec Clémentine Delauney (ex-WHYZDOM) au micro. Toujours à la pointe en terme de Metal Symphonique à chanteuse, l'Autriche est décidément imbattable dès qu'il s'agit de produire de la musique lyrique et orchestrale. SERENITY à une approche plus Metal que d'autres formations du même genre mais n'en oublie pas pour autant de privilégier les mélodies vocales et les arrangement orchestraux, une fois de plus de classe mondiale ici. SERENITY est une formation en constante évolution et toujours dans le bon sens, "War Of Ages est sans aucun doute leur meilleur opus à ce jour. A ECOUTER DE TOUTE URGENCE !
Edition Digipack Limitée, inclus 2 titres inédits (dont une reprise de QUEEN).
Pour fans de KAMELOT, EDENBRIDGE, XANDRIA, DIABULUS IN MUSICA.

Je rassure tout le monde d'emblée : il n'en est rien. "War Of Ages" reprend les choses où "Death and Legacy" les a laissées. Dès le premier titre, "Wings Of Madness", on retrouve les orchestrations bien en place, la mélodie est bien fichue et on pense toujours autant à Kamelot.
Il y a toutefois un changement de taille, du moins sur le papier : l'intégration dans le groupe d'une jeune chanteuse française, Clémentine Delaunay (ex-Whyzdom).Lire la suite ›

This work brings a couple of innovations. The band used to have guest appearances from various well-known female singers from the metal world. On this album, they have instead introduced a new member, Clementine Delauney, who handles all the female vocals. She has a good voice - perhaps limited in comparison to some in the genre - but very pleasant, and perfect in support of Georg Neuhauser's vocals. This leads to what I feel are more ballads on this album than on earlier work. It provides a little more variation in mood over the album.
These seem to be the only minor changes in style from D&L. For the most part, the approach is the same: solid instrumental work, excellent vocals, outstanding production. This is straightforward music that one enjoys on the first listening. This band does not engage in the progressive time and key signature gimmickry that some others do, nor on pieces with extended development. In general Serenity start in 4/4 and stay there for four or five minutes, with tight ensemble work and frequent flashes of virtuosity. This band performs songs, not symphonies. The vocals are uniformly excellent, and there is a delightful bonus track that allows Neuhauser simultaneously to pay tribute to Freddie Mercury, and to show that he has serious chops of his own. That piece also features lovely work by Mario Hirzinger, who has since left the band. The point is that the vocals are not the whole story - all of the musicians are outstanding, with excellent guitar riffs, crisp keyboards, and always-sharp percussion. The relative simplicity of their musical structures only emphasizes the brilliant ensemble sound of the band.
The album is highly produced, as has become standard in the genre. What is not always standard is the crispness of the production found here. There is none of the muddiness or sheer excess one can find in some metal recordings. This certainly adds to the effect, the better to show off the skills of the musicians. The orchestral arrangements are likewise of top quality.
I feel that Serenity established themselves as premier practitioners of the symphonic metal genre with their previous album, and this work just solidifies that position. If you liked D&L, you will love this album. If you enjoy symphonic or power metal but have not heard these guys, listen right now.
Musically, the album is fantastic; I really enjoyed the new things at play here. They mix it up a little in every song - Legacy of Tudors is a good example. Anyone remember the Images and Words -> Awake change in tone with James Labrie? Georg pulls it off remarkably well here on The Art of War. Clementine Delauney is a FANTASTIC addition to the lineup, and it's downright criminal that she doesn't play a larger role.
Oh, spend a couple of extra bucks and get the limited edition with the "Fairytales" piano version. Fallen Sanctuary fans probably think the ORIGINAL was the piano version - to you, I say "nay". This is the definitive piano version. It's really good. Clementine's voice is haunting.
My favorite song on the whole album is "For Freedom's Sake", and I really hope they choose to make a video. Sitting at my computer with the lyrics booklet, singing along to each song, trying to learn the words..."For Freedom's Sake" comes on, and I'm like, "Hey. A ballad." But I'm not sure I have the words to tell you how meaningful and MOVING the lyrics are. You can FEEL this guy's pain. You're with him as he dies. It's striking. Touching. Heartfelt.
Buy this album. Listen to it. Tell your friends. And maybe - MAYBE - we can get a Serenity North American tour.
The Answer is a resounding YES and only more so.
Like my favorite Symphinc/Bombastic band Edenbridge, Serenity is likewise an Austrian Symphonic Metal band going from strength to strength and with the release of their new album War of Ages have succeeded in creating a truly epic soundscape filled with emotion that willleave the listener craving for more. I have played it several times and cannot get over how polished and harmoic the album is. They could have really went over the top, but kept everything in balance. Nothing dominates at the cost of anything else. Something many such bands could learn from. Of course I am a little biased; I just love the singing voice of Georg Neuhaser and it is further supported now with the addition of Clémentine Delauney (ex- Whyzdom) whose voice is very easy to listen too. Serenity have proven again that they know this genre and are here to stay. My feeling is thank goodness.
