An album that is everything that this genre should be about. Utterly superb!

2016 is going to be a very special year for Delain. It's their tenth anniversary in the music business and they have a lot of very special things planned. The band kicked things off with their 'Lunar Prelude EP' (reviewed issue #75*), which leads us nicely onto this new album 'Moonbathers'.

It's a profound statement of intent from a band who have risen through the crowded ranks of the Symphonic/Gothic Metal genre, whilst working their collective socks off to try to get to the top of the mountain. Profound, because it is (I think) their crowning moment. Atmospheric, flamboyant, powerful, full of authority and class, Delain have written and recorded what is easily their best ever album (so far).

First track 'Hands Of Gold' explodes from the speakers and slams you into the wall with its sheer force and from here on in Delain show, with the power of their music and songs, just what a great act they have become. 'The Glory And The Scum' is a hard-hitting track full of hooks and intelligent arrangements, whilst 'Suckerpunch' is an almost Poppy song in the way it has been constructed; the keyboards especially giving it a fresh vibrant feel.

The enchanting 'The Hurricane', 'Chrysalis – The Last Breath' where the stunning emotion-fuelled vocals of Charlotte Wessels tear at the heart strings, 'Fire With Fire' with its chant-along chorus, and 'Scandal', a song that any Female-Fronted Hard Rock act would love to have written, all go to show and prove just what ten years of dedication and blood, sweat and tears can do for a bunch of committed musicians who have a real passion for what they do.

For fans of Delain, this is an absolute no-brainer. If, however, you haven't as yet fallen for the charms of this mighty combo (and why haven't you?), there's no better place for you to start than with 'Moonbathers', an album that is everything that this genre should be about. Utterly superb!
