April Rain [Bonus Track]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
Symphonic metal with prominent pianos and a glamorous female singer -- that would be an unwieldy name for a genre but after enough years of bands that clearly wore their copies of early Gathering CDs into the ground, still appropriate. Thus the sophomore effort by Delain, which has all the flair one would expect for a band that might be the new Evanescence or the new Birthday Massacre or its own self.

Everything does seem like it should be soundtracking the latest Underworld movie, no bad thing necessarily. [This edition includes the bonus track "Come Closer."]
