autumnsorrow I fall in love with Wim's musical project, Syrenomelia. This dark atmosphere that envelops the listener immersing him in other worlds... I admire this painful beauty of vocals and guitar riffs... I also want to say a great thank you for the creative collaboration, it was very nice to make a video in the atmosphere of the track Like The World Outside, which became my favorite in the album. Favorite track: Like the World Outside.

Luca Fiore One of Belgium's most interesting artists currently, at least in the last couple decades, the artist himself known former for being Magdalena Solis, this is the evolution of that and boy is this album a nice treat!. Amazing vocals and especially superb production.

A Rose Shattered is Syrenomelia’s debut single. The title track is about a toxic relationship between a mother and her daughter, portrayed via poetic reflections on psychological torture, insanity, self-harm and loose morals. Like The World Outside is based on autobiographical memories of boys cutting a dead rat to pieces and “reassembling” it as an alien creature.

"Two excellent songs which will appeal to a wide range of music fans because of the combination of styles. If it depends on us, you will often hear this name in the future."
- Dark Entries

"Syrenomelia needs less than eight shattering minutes to leave us frustrated, because we want to hear even more. So immediately pacified again by the repeat button, for this is not something that easily slips off your mind."
- Luminous Dash

"Although all this takes just under 8 minutes, it leaves a lasting impression, making this wonderful gem a showpiece and Syrenomelia a name to watch out for in the future."
- Subjectivisten

Track Name: A Rose Shattered
Swathes of memories
Of crimes once so sweet
It looks you in the eye
And nullifies you
Mortifies you
Blessed with pain and sorrow
Blessed with signs and wonders
Poke your injuries
In sweet denial
It glorifies you
This child
It heaps you
Demeans you
Feeds on your pain
It grows and grows
It breaks your bones
When you let it control your brain
Your useless life
I saw the ghost inside of you
I saw it take over your brain
I saw them make you believe
That everything they said was real
You know they all want you to die
How soon do you wish to die?
How soon do you wish to die?
Track Name: Like the World Outside
Do you remember
When your children were outside
Do you remember
Unspeakable acts
Do you remember
The creature they made
When they longed to be
Like the world outside
Restless creatures
Craving stranger lives
Remember the days
When they came to your world
In corruption you rise
From the sweet fields beyond
Remember the creature
Remember the creature
Remember the creature
Remember the creature
