A dark fantastical air and exploration of folklore emanates from Rise Forth, the new album by Siren’s Rain. Founded in 2014 by William Beritich and Rena Hellzinger, Siren’s Rain deliver heavy riffs, haunting vocals and ethereal melodies using a vast array of traditional folk instruments. The new record follows the EPs Nightmares from the Abyss (2019) and Beneath the Narrors (2016, re-released 2018).
In their own words:
Siren’s Rain is excited to announce the release of our first full-length album, Rise Forth. This work revisits the harp and mandolin and introduces the nyckelharpa to the band’s instrumentation. This album delves into the themes of abandonment, betrayal, hope, despair and resilience. Heavier, faster and galloping, this work showcases the band’s musical growth and exploration of the barriers of aggression.
The album is self-released on October 8th, 2021 but you can enjoy the premiere of the album below:
Rise Forth is a powerhouse of heavy, distorted sounds and ornate harmonies. The metal composition creates an epic backdrop for the exquisitely crafted folk instrumentation that explores both the serene and the dark. Siren’s Rain have produced an album that is compelling, emotive and transcends the temporal plains.
