First review of a band from the Maldives. Serenity Dies play a rather modern form of Thrash though some more old school influences can be heard – there's a bit of Megadeth in here, though more akin to the post-Rust in Peace, more melodic era. The vocals are clean but harsh and need some getting used to – I've heard some alternative rock bands using this type of vocals and I couldn't help but think of that. There are some more melodic vocals used as well.
The music varies from uninteresting and plain dull to decent – sometimes they're just chugging along and it gets old quick. It's when they turn into their more melodic selves that Serenity Dies become more interesting – "Blood Serenade" is a good example of that. They might want to focus on that style in the future instead of the simpler approach in the first couple of songs. People are more likely to get hooked by heavy melodies and good solos than by "chug-chug-chug" crap that appeals to A.D.D. kids for two and a half minutes. With that said, this is not particularly original and nearly half is pretty dull, but there's some good potential showing in a few of these songs, so it'll be interesting to see what these guys come up with next.
