I love Austrian Power/Prog band Serenity. I bought their new album, Death & Legacy, on a whim while at an F.Y.E. store in Chicago last summer (I had never seen so much good music in a physical store before. It was glorious.) and immediately fell in love with it. The singer's voice is fabulous (I have no idea why YouTube trolls say he sounds like Mickey Mouse), the music sounds akin to a mixture of old Kamelot/Sonata Arctica (both of which I miss very, very much), and I think I listened to the album exclusively for two weeks or more. There are also lots of guest female vocalists, which is delicious icing on an already-awesome rainbow cake.
So it should be no surprise that I'm extremely excited that Serenity are coming to the States for ProgPower XIII! And it was announced this morning that Serenity will be bringing a female vocalist, Clémentine Delauney, with them for the show. I was hoping their guest vocalist would be Amanda Somerville, as I'm a huge fan of hers and I haven't heard much of "Clemi." She sounds great on YouTube, though, and I look forward to seeing her perform with Serenity this September!
Here's a video of Serenity's "The Chevalier" featuring the lovely Ailyn from Sirenia! I love this song, and it's the reason I bought the Serenity album in the first place.
