Sirenia – Dim Days of Dolor


For starters, front-woman Ailyn is long gone and I must say, she shan’t be missed. Yes, Sirenia has swapped their squeaky, squealy,  X-Factor drop out in favor of Emmanuelle Zoldan, an equally attractive and much more talented opera singer from France. The improvement in quality from one singer to the other cannot be understated. It’s apparent from the opening moments of “Goddess of the Sea.” Emmanuelle is just better. Leagues better. Reminiscent of ex-Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen, Emmanuelle is both more powerful and more diverse than Ailyn, and her voice is a major reason many of the tracks on the album are enjoyable.
