Delirium are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of pagan, black and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Urkraft" which will be released on April 12th by MDD Records.
A very heavy, melodic and epic sound starts off the album along with some black metal screams being added onto the recording a few seconds later. The guitar solos and leads also utilize a great amount of melody while death metal growls are also added into some parts of the songs.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and some of the riffing also shows an influence of rock music.
Clean pagan vocals are also brought into some parts of the music while one track also introduces spoken word parts onto the recording and as the album progresses a brief use of clean guitars can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and cover Franconian History, Nordic and Germanic Paganism and Mythology themes.
In my opinion Delirium are a very great sounding mixture of pagan, black and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Panzerreiter" "Der Meistertrunk" "Ewiglich in Stein" and "Urkraft". 8 out of 10.
