The epic title track announces its intentions via an atmospheric acoustic piano and strings soundscape that perfectly compliments the fantastically nautical themed cover art. Around the two-minute mark, an angular, harmonic minor guitar-led transition chockfull of synchronous hits and double-kick drums breaks the song open. Moving through a wide array of metallic styles, “The Sirens” highlights the band’s ability to seamlessly blend a mix of power, death and progressive influences into a single package. This is characteristic of the best progressive metal bands, particularly ones on the more extreme end of the spectrum, but I’ve always thought that Into Eternity’s focus on melodic fist-raising power-metal inflected choruses was the rug that really tied the room together.
