Like a phoenix from the flames, metal masters Delain have  recently returned with a new line up, setting off into a new era.

Featuring a new line up including singer, Diana Leah and guest vocalist, Paulo Ribaldini, the multi-million streaming, leading outfit now set the stage for their eagerly awaited next studio album, ‘Dark Waters’, set for release on February 10th, 2023 via Napalm Records.

Emerging as a brand new start and safe haven alike, Dark Waters, without any doubt, continues the legacy of the brainchild of keyboardist, founder and main songwriter  Martijn Westerholt, and contains everything DELAIN is loved for and more.

Catch them on the UK venues listed below:

The album is a sonic rollercoaster ride of catchy tunes with explosive elements, ranging from pop to film score-inspired to blistering, room-shakin’ metal – and even with a special guest or two.

Brand new single “Beneath” perfectly showcases the incredible talent and musical sophistication of new vocalist Diana Leah. The track also boasts guest singer Paolo Ribaldini. Along with a stunning music video, “Beneath” takes the listener into a sinister underworld of the deep. Modern, synth melodies mix with hook-filled classical passages and ominous riffs throughout the song.

Martijn Westerholt comments, “’Beneath’ is a perfect ambassador of the album and DELAIN as a whole because it encapsulates almost all of the recognisable DELAIN elements you will find on the album!

  Watch the official music video for “Beneath” below:

The track listing for ‘Dark Waters‘ is as follows:

Hideaway Paradise
The Quest And The Curse
Mirror Of Night
Tainted Hearts
The Cold
Moth To A Flame
