Delta biography
DELTA is a Neoclassical/Prog Metal band from Chile. They were formed by Rodrigo GUERRA (Guitar) and Nicolas QUINTEROS (Keyboard). Soon Santiago KEGEVIC joined the band on bass and mid 2003 also Jorge SEPULVEDA as the second guitarist. Later on, Rodrigo GUERRA left the band and Benjamin LECHUGA took his place, he joined the band at the same time as Felipe DEL VALLE who would be the new vocalist.

With this basic line-up DELTA's professional career started at the end of 2003 when they had the chance to record their first CD Apollyon is Free. Once the album was recorded, they finally found the drummer that they were looking for, Andres ROJAS. He joined DELTA for their 2004 and 2005 tours.

In early 2006, DELTA started to work in the recording sessions for the new album called Black & Cold, but Jorge SEPULVEDA decides to leave the band for personal reasons. In 2007 DELTA opened shows for worldwide metal bands SYMPHONY X and VISION DIVINE, and in 2008 for DREAM THEATER, being elected for that job by Mike PORTNOY himself.

Since their 2008 studio album Crashbreaker and their first live DVD Live at the Beginning, DELTA is considered one of the most successful metal band in Chile appearing in lots of webzines, magazines (Rolling Stones included), some radio stations, fanclub and more. Hard working and trying to do the best music they are capable to offer are their main objectives for the future. In 2010 Deny Humanity was released.

Review by kluseba

5 stars This progressive metal band from Chile is one of my best discoveries of the last months in the genre alongside "Magellan". The guys from the exotic country deliver a diversified record full of surprises, experiments and still addicting melodies as well as coherent structures. Even though the production and sound quality is below average, every musician in here has particular skills and delivers the best performance he can. The production is in fact the only negative thing about this record which is otherwise close to perfection. The band tends in general towards a slight power metal sound but never in a cheesy and commercial way and creates some heavy and addicting passages that remind me heavily of "Symphony X". While the band takes bits and pieces from the works of that band which is the only secondary reason whi I took off some points in the end they are still creative and unique enough to convince me.

The band creates epic and dreamy atmospheres and this right on from the exotic opener "Nitroduction" that develops a surprisingly fast track with an amazing chorus to the great final piano or keyboard solo which is "Schizophrenia" that is full of empathy for the song's topic. It really is a shame that a band of such a high quality has not gotten one single review or any kind of attention on this site and I feel honoured to change this and help to spread the word about those guys. Every track is epic and filled with passion and atmosphere. My favourite tracks might be the very complete and freshly diversified tracks which are the dark and mean "Face The World" and the hectically arranged but amazing "Two Faces" which is one of the most gripping instrumental tracks of the genre I have ever heard. But I could honestly almost mention any song of this record.

The album really should please to any fan of progressive metal as there is no single filler to find and the instrumental songs are as gripping as the vocal tracks. I will try to purchase a rare to find original copy of this record and invite you to do the same thing if you are convinced by what you hear. This record is really worth to do some research and pay a good price for it. I will now listen to the other albums of the band and look forward to discover more.

Originally published on on June 18th of the year 2011.

Thanks to bonnek for the artist addition.
