4 stars Greek outfit VERBAL DELIRIUM was initially formed by composer and keyboardist Jargon back in 1999, but numerous line-up alterations over the next few years resulted in no real progress for the first few years of its existence. A demo was scored in 2007, and with what appeared to be a stabilized personnel situation a full-length debut album was recorded in 2009. The material recorded earned them a deal with the French label Musea Records, which released the album towards the tail end of 2010.

Strong moods and distinct melodies are at the forefront of the material showcased by Verbal Delirium on this occasion, and as such those with a fancy for capital P progressive rock may not find what they are looking for in this case. But those with a soft spot for acts like Sylvan, especially the more recent parts of their discography, should be a core audience for this band. While different in overall stylistic expression, I believe the overall dynamics of the compositions should resonate well with that particular crowd.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
