“Bill Leeb’s project Delirium finally sees a dvd-release which features a vibrant and fresh sounding live performance which surely will please a lot of fans of the band worldwide, as it finally enables to catch them in the flesh on stage. According to the press-release, “Epiphany” captures the ethereal essence of a Delerium performance realized as “paintings in motion”.
Well, the footage captured on the 95-minute “Epiphany” was filmed in October 2008 at Washington D.C.’s award-winning Nightclub 9:30, with additional stuff from Atlanta, West Palm Beach and Montreal.
The use of live drums, captivating synthesizer parts and a good portion of guitar work take the mix of world music and electro-pop to the next level, not to forget the deep and groovy bass lines and the mesmerizing, seductive female vocals on top of them.
I personal prefer the few instrumental tracks such as “Terra Firma”, but “Twilight” and “Flowers become Screens” turns out very nicely. At the end of the disc there’s a very nice version of the hit song “Silence”, followed by the great “Incantation” with its stunning vocals.
Although this stuff is something different from what I normally review and listen to, “Epiphany’s” ethereal-exotica-electropop act is nicely done!
