Dutch female-fronted black-death metal band EDGE OF SERENITY will release a new single, “The Royal Hunt”, later in the year. The effort marks the recording debut of the group’s new vocalist Nanette V. and includes a guest appearance by Swedish drummer Adrian Erlandsson (PARADISE LOST, AT THE GATES, NEMHAIN, VALLENFYRE, ex-CRADLE OF FILTH).
EDGE OF SERENITY decided at the end of last year to continue as a female-fronted metal band with a darker and sinister sound. Founding member Wietze Halma states, “As I always say, writing music is like living your life — it changes once in a while, and so at this moment, I just have the feeling of writing more darker songs than I did before. And I think with this sound I have found, we will continue, as it’s not as friendly as the tracks on our debut album, ‘The Chaos Theory’, it gives me a more satisfying feeling overall.”
EDGE OF SERENITY has finished several new tracks for an upcoming release, which will contain more special guest appearances.
The band’s debut album, “The Chaos Theory”, came out in May 2009 through Romulus X Records.
