It’s no exaggeration to say that Dutch symphonic metal superstars DELAIN are on fire. With six critically acclaimed albums, they have solidified themselves as one of the most exciting and innovative acts in modern metal. They’re back with their highly anticipated new single, ‘Moth to a Flame‘, taken from their forthcoming album Dark Waters.
This latest offering is an infectious slice of symphonic metal brilliance, with soaring vocals and a thundering rhythm section driving it forward. The track features lush orchestral strings and epic choirs that give it the classic DELAIN sound while introducing new influences.
With a delicate balance between heavy riffs and melodic harmonies, ‘Moth to a Flame’ is sure to be an instant fan favourite.
Keyboardist, founder, and songwriter Martijn Westerholt comments, “I’m extremely proud of this song. It’s one of the most upbeat songs on the album while also having the heaviest guitar riff, and Diana’s vocals are outstanding! It’s a killer combination that I think fans will love.”
Dark Waters will be released on February 10th 2023, via Napalm Records and is available in multiple formats, including 2-LP Gatefold (Black), 2-CD Digisleeve + Shirt Bundle, Wooden Boxset including Digisleeve 2CDs, 1-CD Slipcase with Orchestral Album and more.
