When you think Austrian power metal, well, actually, it’s hard to say what you’d imagine, but Tyra, Austria’s Serenity have been playing their brand of melodic, bombastic power metal since their formation in 2001. Since 2007, they’ve released four albums, with their fifth, Codex Atlanticus, coming out on January 29th. Today, we’re premiering the first single from that album, “Follow Me.” Thankfully, it’s not an Uncle Kracker cover, but another symphonic power metal gem from the band. Codex Atlanticus is a concept album about Leonardo Da Vinci, and while you won’t get the full impact by hearing one song, “Follow Me” is a good jumping off point.
Codex Atlanticus will be released on January 29th on Napalm Records, and can be preordered here.
