In anticipation of their next studio album Symphonic Metalers ​Delain​ have released a special gift for their fans. In the form of a second live album and accompanying DVD, there are also 4 brand new tracks to prepare for their new album later in the year. As a prelude ​Hunter’s Moon​ allows fans to get a sneak peek at what is yet to come from this band.

The first 4 tracks from the album are those new tracks which have seen the bands guitarists step forward with their writing abilities. The band have clearly been busy and this is the proof. With the fast paced, energetic riffs that drive through each of the tracks and the steady beat pushing them forward, the band still has a lot to show for themselves. ​Charlotte Wessels ​vocals are as hauntingly beautiful as always, providing that soft contrast to the heaviness of the band and creating a stunning sound. If this is the prelude to the next album, fans are certainly on for a treat!

The live part of the album also holds something special as ​Nightwish’s Marco Hietala ​guest stars. Hietala joined Delain on their ​Danse Macabre ​live tour last year and seemed to certainly make an impact with fans as heard on the album. He fits into the bands style with ease and his harmonies with Wessel on “Your Body Is A Battleground” are near perfect as though he belongs. This live portion of the album, does what all really good live recordings do, and make you wish you’d been apart of the audience.

Delain ​really know how to treat their fans with this latest offering. With a peek into what could be coming from their next album and a look back at their last tour, what more could you ask for. With a DVD added for bonus, there is enough to satisfy the need for more from the band for now.

Hunter’s Moon is released this Friday Feb 22nd via Napalm Records.
