16-8-2014: BREAKING: No SoD reunion

Finally some news from your all time heroes. We more or less broke up about 10 years ago to pave the way for Mark Zuckerbergs succes with Facebook. We like to take this opportunity to congratulate him with his tremendous succes. Meanwhile Serenade of Darkness didn't sit still either. After we became filthy rich outside the music industry we found our old website in a dusty archive on a 10 Gb harddrive we once paid 200 euro for. We decided to upload it again for the one or two remaining fans out there. As we download/stream music like maniacs ourselves we're gonna chip in and publish our music to download for free as well! Right now the material is available at last.fm. Storms is available here, but when we feel a little less lazy we'll upload it to this server.

14-12-2005: New Guestbook and forum

In an experiment to test the capibilities of our server we've installed phpBB (the n3rds among you know what i'm talking about, the rest probably doesn't give a fuck). We've decided to keep it and as a result we've replaced our guestbook and created a new forum as well. (The Einsteins among you will notice a new button in the menu of this magnificent website). This is your chance to meet and greet your heroes (and with heroes i mean us, so don't get any ideas about Kerry King or Ihsahn) so sign up and start posting.

bye bye,

30-11-2005: Download section updated

I've updated our download section. You can now find the complete Storms album for download. Ofcourse the quality isn't as good as it is on CD but at least you can get an impression of what to get. That should satisfy you, you cheap bastards! ;)

Don't let the IRAA get to you,

30-11-2005: New Bassplayer found!

I'm happy to announce that the vacancy for bassplayer has been filled. A very gifted musician named esproC has been added to our collection of freaks and we're currently busy teaching him the ropes. We'll be looking for some new gigs as soon as he's ready. In other news: The new material is working great. We've got as much as 3 songs finished by now and we're working on 2 or 3. Expect some more news in the future.


17-10-2005: Serenade wants you!

Hello everyone, we're back! However, we are sad to announce that Bijl has decided to quit the band due to other priorities. This means however that there's a vacancy at the bass in Serenade of Darkness. So, if you like to join our little group of lycanthropes please let us know. You can contact us by sending an email to info@serenadeofdarkness.nl. We practice every friday evening in Ede, the Netherlands.

'till next time,

11-06-2005: Gone Fishing!

Here's some little but important news from the SoD camp. We've cancelled all of our gigs (current and future) and we're taking a break from the band. Despite some rumors you may have heard, we did not split up, we're just taking a long well deserved vacation. I'll post a notice when our vacation is over, so make sure you check this site now and then.

I know you all want to know the latest news regarding your favorite blackmetal band but there is very little to tell. Currently we're writing some new songs and i've got to tell you, it sounds all very promissing. Of course it's to soon to tell how everything will sound at the end but we've got our hopes up. Try to be patient and everything will be allright.
