"Interlude" (Napalm Records; 2013)
Reviewed by Jeff Rogers
Delain are symphonic metal. This is a disc that has new songs on it and some remixes of older tracks. It also has a DVD that features videos of concert footage as well as videos for some of their more popular tracks. If you are going to start with a Delain disc, this would be the one.
Delain was formed by former Within Temptation
keyboardist Martijn Westerhold and vocalist Charlotte Wessels. Symphonic metal
is very popular overseas and Delain are Dutch so their sound isn't so much heavy
as more ambient, especially when Charlotte sings. There is a metal element
present when it's a metal tinged track and Charlotte would be the modern day
equivalent to Ann or Nancy Wilson of Heart.
The music sounds really good throughout and, with the added DVD, you can really experience Delain to its fullest.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
