Don't judge a book by its cover. Apocalypse & Chill's title is a clear reference to the contemporary 'Netflix and Chill' trend, and the album cover is trying to depict our preoccupation to look gorgeous and take selfies while the world out there is on fire. Great idea, not so great execution. No matter what you think of the album cover and the antithesis it is trying to highlight, the music of Delain's latest is hitting the nail on the head; it takes modern metal guitar hooks that sound really heavy at times and adorns them with keyboards, chorals and symphonic elements in a very balanced manner. Apocalypse & Chill stays strong throughout its runtime, featuring its best material in the second half. Make sure to check out Charlotte's duet with Yannis Papadopoulos (Beast In Black) on "Vengeance", the super heavy "Creatures" with its chorus nodding to Queen's "The Show Must Go On", the absolutely epic "Masters Of Destiny" and the djenty (not joking) instrumental "Combustion".

Do they sell Knob Creek in Greece? Because that would explain it.

I wasn't drunk when I staff-picked it, lol. Not sure if they sell it here, didn't know what it was actually, had to google it.
Seriously though, the latest Delain album is so addictive and it goes very well when listened with the new Anaal Nathrakh back to back, which what I have been doing this Sunday morning.

It's either the worst album art work and title of the album ever or the most brilliant one

maybe it's one of those "it's so bad, it's good" kind.

I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

It's definitely not forgettable or indifferent

I'm not certain if this predicted the apocalypse or caused it.

Father: How can a picture of a field be sad without a sad person looking sad in the field?
Young Woman: That's an interesting problem. Yeah, I struggle with that.

Both: a self-fulfilling prophecy.
