Folk metal bunch Siren’s Rain (founded in 2014 by bassist and backing vocalist William Beritich, and vocalist, harpist and percussionist Rena Hellzinger) are getting ready to unleash their first full-length record titled “Rise Forth” on October 8th, 2021. The new album follows the band’s EPs ‘Nightmares from the Abyss’ (released in 2019) and ‘Beneath the Narrows’ (released in 2016 and re-released in 2018).
Siren’s Rain previously unearthed fresh songs “Keepers” and the impending LP’s title-track, and today you can scroll down below to check out the third single dubbed “Corporeal Chains,” a high-energy tune with bleak, harsh vocals as well as a haunting, catchy chorus courtesy of Rena.
Regarding the new track, the band tells us, “Corporeal Chains features the introduction of the nyckelharpa to the band’s instrumentation. The instrument provides a sinister, ominous tonality on this track. The song has a restless, unsettling feel to it with the juxtaposition of the clean vocals and the monster-like vocals. The lyrics describe Rena’s battle with Lyme disease, feeling poisoned by, or inhabited by little monsters in the body and the struggle with chronic illness.”
Speaking on their upcoming album, ‘Rise Forth,’ the band previously stated, “This album delves into the themes of abandonment, betrayal, hope, despair and resilience. Heavier, faster and galloping, this work showcases the band’s musical growth and exploration of the barriers of aggression.”
