Keyboardist, founder and main songwriter Martijn Westerholt on “Queen of Shadow”:
"’Queen of Shadow’ is a classic example of pure DELAIN-style. Musically it has some really awesome things going on such as harmonic guitars and catchy melodies which are complemented by both the alluring and powerhouse vocals of Diana and our guest singer Paolo.”


In 2022, metal greats DELAIN broke new ground by announcing their new studio album, Dark Waters. With this astonishing piece of art, the chart-breaking outfit sets the stage for the next era, while still sticking to their unique sound that fans and critics alike love - catchy, bombastic tunes full of contrasts and the highest standard of orchestral arrangements.

Fuelled by massive support and enthusiasm all around the globe, songs like their first standalone single “The Quest and The Curse” and recently released “Beneath” lure with a bombastic sound that skillfully combines orchestral melodies, epic heavy riffs and marvelous vocal performances. DELAIN magnificently manages to never lose touch with their characteristic sound, making them a constant without ever standing still. Pop-induced opening track “Hideaway Paradise” shows exactly that by inducing a dream-like feeling flirting with melodic metal guitars, while the ballad-like dark track “Mirror of Night”, featuring Within Temptation guitarist Ruud Jolie, entices the listener with unfathomably catchy lines and melodies. “Tainted Hearts” is centered around Westerholt's keyboard arrangements, which skillfully showcase the creative roots of the mastermind. “Invictus” is nothing less than the Magnum Opus of the album - a rock opera in its own right with heavy riffing, choirs and vocal parts performed by Diana Leah, Paolo Ribaldini and Marko Hietala (ex-Nightwish), ending in a bombastic climax where everything comes together.
