Sirenia is a Gothic metal band from Stavanger, Norway which incorporates a mixture of Gothic metal
and Symphonic metal, as well as Black metal and Death metal elements. The vocals consist of death
grunts, operatic female vocals and a clean male singer. The lyrics, written by Morten Veland, tell a
loose conceptual story that began at Widow's Weeds, while he was still a member of Tristania.
The band uses melodic instrumentals, synthesizers, and distorted guitars with female vocals, male
death vocals, clean male vocals, a choir, and violins. The lyrics are concerned with human existence,
emotion, and mental states.
