A closer look at... 'Sweet Serenity'
We're taking an in-depth look at our back catalogue while gigs are suspended, both on our social media and here on our website.
Next up, we have our second single - 'Sweet Serenity', mastered by TesseracT's Acle Kahney.
'Sweet Serenity' was a turning point for us in terms of songwriting, as it began the practice of including a narrative in the lyrics - something we've continued to do ever since.
It follows the story of someone who, upon finding themselves in the afterlife after a brief but corrupt existence, reflects on the beauty of life and all that they have missed. They plead to be given a second chance to do things right.
The narrative fits wonderfully with the juxtaposition of heavy, staccato riffs and open, melodic passages, and it's still a staple in our live set today!
It was great fun to write and implanted in us a love of storytelling in the music we create, a notion that has forever shaped our future writing.
