Sirenia is a Gothic Metal / Symphonic Metal band from Norway that formed in 2001. They use clean/guttural male vocals as well as female vocals and a choir. The band was founded by Morten Veland who also was a founding member of Tristania & Mortemia.

The debut album, At Sixes and Sevens, which is a figure of speech to describe a condition of confusion and disarray.

The third album brings a new female vocalist, Monika Pedersen, whose face is also featured as a cyborg on the cover. This album was the first with the record label Nuclear Blast (one of my favorite record labels). The music style moved towards a more melodic gothic style and and less growls, which gave Sirenia a wider audience. It was the first album to make it into the music charts......

The 6th album, Perils of the Deep Blue, was the band's biggest commercial success. It was also the last album with Nuclear Blast.
