Serenity is one of those bands that keep developing their style and sound as they adapt themselves to line up changes. it’s not doubt that Death And Legacy has a different feeling than War of Ages, as the voice of Clémentine Delauney not only fits the music, but her duets with Georg Neuhauser give life to the stories behind the lyrics.
War Of Ages was a more delicate and epic album than Death And Legacy, but at the same time it fitted perfectly the band’s transition from a power metal sound to a more symphonic metal sound. The orchestral arrangements, the epicness of the lyrics, and the voice duos helped the album to become the door for a new chapter in the history of the band. A chapter that took them for the first time to the stage of Metal Female Voices Festival XI in Belgium last October.
Their show was a bit short but astonish nonetheless, they played old songs like Rust Of Coming Ages and Coldness Kills out of their Falling Sanctuary album, The Chevalier & Serenate Of Flames (Which featured Charlotte Wessels of Delain) out Death And Legacy, and new tunes like The Matricide, Wings Of Madness, and a piano version of Fairytales.
After their show at MFVF XI, The Age Of Metal had the chance to speak with Clémentine Delauney vocalist of Serenity. We talked about the vocal changes of some of the songs, their experience at MFVF XI, War of Ages, and what is next for them.
