Wow - they have improved yet again: more passion, more playfulness, more compositorial competence. With their first two releases, Serenity set themselves apart from the mass of Progressive respectively Melodic Power Metal material, but now the Austrian elite brigade around exceptional talent and über-singer Georg Neuhauser has reached the top. Cocky words? Well, check out their new album "Fallen sanctuary" which meets even the highest requirements of a connoisseur. The Austrians demonstrate again how skilful they manage to wrap their fantastically playful super songs in a rough coating. Intoxicatingly orchestrated and hypnotically arranged, the ten tracks on this silver slice convince me totally. This extremely high quality mix of the quintet is second to none on our continent - fanatic followers of their style will rejoice.
