Delain’s New Single “Queen of Shadow” Dropped Ahead of Tomorrow’s Dark Waters Release


With their new album Dark Waters set to release tomorrow via Napalm Records, Delain figured now was the perfect time to release a new single and accompanying music video for the track “Queen of Shadow.”

Featuring their specific style of symphonic metal, Delain’s new track keeps their penchant for orchestral hits and synth-y sound scapes mixed with heavy guitars and sweeping vocal melodies intact. The band says “Queen of Shadow” marks “another powerful example of the fresh new sound that presents the crystal clear voice of front woman Diana Leah – shining bright like the early morning sun of a yet untouched day.”

Delain keyboardist, founder and main songwriter Martijn Westerholt said this song in particular was 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.”

With the new album out tomorrow, Westerholt said Dark Waters “captures all elements Delain is known for– our distinctive heavy guitar riffs, massive orchestral parts, both heavy metal and pop vocals, rock opera vibes along with 80s synth sounds. In short, this is definitely a recognizable Delain album that contains classic ‘Delain elements’ while also moving forward with fresh influences.”

So if all that sounds like your jam, be sure to check out the new album tomorrow. In the meantime, you can press play on the “Queen of Shadow” video to get a feel for that track at least and you can preorder Dark Waters via Napalm Records right now.
