Ambre Vourvahis: “I am really happy to be a part of this wonderful project, I’ve always been a Sirenia fan and even loved the first Mortemia album back in 2010…who would have thought that I would sing on a song for it today! And what a song, I loved it from the first time hearing it. Morten knew exactly what would fit my voice – I absolutely loved recording it and be part of this adventure with all these amazing singers. Thank you Morten for your trust”.
