Serenity is a melodic power metal band from Austria with progressive, power and symphonic influences.



Serenity was founded in Tyrol, Austria in January 2001 receiving "fine reviews" for their first demo "Starseed V.R.". In 2003/2004, three of the original members left the band. The replacement members were contacted throughout February to March 2004. The band's next demo, "Engraved Within", was released in April 2005 and was met with positive reviews from such reputable magazines as Germany's Metal Hammer. Their first full album, "Words Untold and Dreams Unlived", was released in Europe on April 27, 2007 and May 8 in the USA and Canada through Napalm Records. The band toured Europe in support of "Words Untold and Dreams Unlived" with Morgana Lefay, Threshold and later Kamelot. The second full length album entitled "Fallen Sanctuary" was produced from December 2007 to April 2008 and was released August 29, 2008 in Europe and September 9 in the USA.[1] The CD contains the band's first video clip "Velatum" which was shot by director Robert Geir and "Wildruf" camera crew from July 2nd to 5th. Launched online on July 17th to promote the upcoming album, the video has been receiving overwhelming reactions from all over the world.
