Canadian blackened death group Serene Dark have unleashed their debut album, Enantiodromia.
Enantiodromia (pronounced en-an-ti-o-dromia) explores the confrontation between the shadow aspect of the personality and the integration of it into the self to create wholeness.
Influenced by philosophy, stoicism, hermeticism, and the occult, the album, lyrically, is a journey towards individuation by the exploration of human darkness and transforming that pain into something tangible and meaningful. In essence- to lose one’s self entirely to reach perfection.
“This album will be received as a new but familiar sound for any previous fans of our last band (Endemise)… We want our fans to get lost in the music,” the band says.
“We want to pique some interest in fans of this style of music… We have written a lot of songs and chosen our top ten favourites.”
Under the name Endemise, the band released Far From The Light (2013) and Anathema (2016), but now with the new name, Serene Dark has made a refreshing start with elements of the previous band still lingering, but taking the songs and style to a new level on this record and experimented with various instruments and vocal styles.
Enantiodromia is out now via Bandcamp and streaming services
