By now, female-fronted bands are two-a-penny. However, when three of the hard music scene’s most influential frontwomen join forces in a new project, that’s nothing short of a sensation, which is the case with THE SIRENS!
Anneke van Giersbergen, Kari Rueslatten, Liv Kristine – if these names don’t make your mouths water, you definitely cannot be helped. These three ladies, with their uniquely charismatic, expressive voices, were absolute pioneers in the gothic scene of the early eighties with their respective bands The Gathering, The 3rd And The Mortal and Theatre Of Tragedy, and they have all been successfully pursuing solo careers – in a more or less “metal” fashion – for quite some time now. The music of their common project THE SIRENS moves in between folk, rock, gothic and metal, including songs by the aforementioned bands, some off their solo albums and some original compositions, which they will present to the audience either with a single singer, as duets or with all three of them singing. So this is a very special treat to all fans of these artists in particular, of female voices in general and of these music genres altogether.
