About Delain


APOCALYPSE & CHILL - The end has never sounded better.

Dutch symphonic rockers DELAIN have been releasing and performing their signature catchy melodic metal sound worldwide for over a decade now. The six albums on their name include guest performances from the titans of the scene, among others: Sharon Den Adel (WITHIN TEMPTATION), Marco Hietala (NIGHTWISH), Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY).Having toured the globe with bands like NIGHTWISH, SABATON and WITHIN TEMPTATION, and having rocked festivals like WACKEN, GRASPOP, DOWNLOAD and FORTAROCK, DELAIN have strongly carved their niche within the scene.

APOCALYPSE & CHILL is the follow up to their chart hitting record Moonbathers. The album carefully yet powerfully weaves together violent riffs, synth heavy themes and fully orchestrated compositions, while the vocals possess a fresh frenzy that is sure to convince Delain fans and new listeners alike. Running as a red thread through the album thematically is a sense of impending doom and human indifference to it.

“We think this APOCALYPSE & CHILL will surprise our listeners” the band states. “It is heavy with new influences and we’re really curious to find out how our audience will respond to that. However, it also deepens the sounds and atmospheres that people have come to know from us. This album is taking all of that to the next level. We are very excited about this release and can’t wait to share it with the world.”

The album brings listeners 11 brand new tracks, including guest appearance by Beast In Black’s Yannis Papadoupolis, 2 full bonus tracks, and three orchestral tracks of film score quality, that will transport listeners to a different world.

Dystopia or utopia? You decide.
