Ailyn is the lead singer in Norwegian gothic/symphonic metal band SIRENIA. With a classical singing background and a very special and fascinating voice, she is one of the most amazing female metal vocalists.
Her musical career started at the age of 15, when she studied solfeggio and classical singing at The Albéniz School of Music. Her professional debut was in 2002 in Cornellà de Llobregat, in an annual benefit fashion show the city held to raise money for Alzheimer’s sufferers. Her first discographic contract was as part of the group Charm (a female vocal trio that played Japanese music).
On April 9, 2008 it was announced that Ailyn was chosen as the new singer of Sirenia. Her first album with the band is The 13th Floor, which was released on January 23, 2009. She is also the female vocalist on Sirenia’s fifth album The Enigma of Life, released on January 21, 2011. Although Henriette Bordvik performed vocals on both An Elixir for Existence and the EP Sirenian Shores, the release of The Enigma of Life makes Ailyn the first female vocalist to record two full-length albums with Sirenia. On April 13, 2013, Sirenia announced the title of their next album on their Facebook page, Perils of the Deep Blue.
In 2011 she contributed to the Austrian power metal band Serenity’s album Death & Legacy, singing the songs “The Chevalier” and “Prayer”. She also features the video “The Chevalier”. In 2014 she collaborated with several other bands such as the Spanish metal band Diabulus in Musica, in their album Argia, singing the song “Furia de Libertad” and with the Greek symphonic metal band Enemy of Reality, in their new album Rejected Gods, singing the song “Needle Bites”. She also appears in the music video of the song. Also she performed live with German/Norwegian symphonic metal band Leaves’ Eyes at their 10th anniversary show in Wieze, Belgium. Ailyn is mentioned in the Dutch metal band The Gentle Storm’s album The Diary booklet for a useful advice she gave regarding that band’s “Shores of India” music video. In 2015 Ailyn’s part in the new album of the metal opera Melted Space was announced.
