Serenity can’t just simply release an album – the symphonic metal giants invite their audience on truly epic journeys! Codex Atlanticus, their fifth album, boasts thrilling storytelling in the realms of art and science. Leonardo Da Vinci is the center of attention on this project, but conspiracy theorists, Illuminati and so forth will also rejoice when mastermind Georg Neuhauser gives free rein to his compositional genius. Codex Atlanticus encompasses elements of movie score type orchestral arrangements, mean riffing and lush melodies! Serenity parted ways with female singer Clémentine Delauney in February 2015, two years after she joined the band as a full member. The group explained in a statement: “Though we have worked with female voices since our second album, we think that we have pushed this aspect far enough with our latest album, [2013’s] War Of Ages. Though we love to add different voices to Georg‘s one, we no longer think these moments will be significant enough to justify to have a female singer within our ranks.” (adapted from Napalm Records/Blabbermouth)
