A classic from the artists behind Front Line Assembly. Much heavier and darker than Delerium's more recent material.

Another Delerium Masterpiece

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Ep is half industrial and half ambient, the first two tracks being more or less straight up industrial, and the last two being spectacular ambient music. The opening track is a crazed tune with psychotic samples and erratic beats suggesting the ravings of a drug addict (rather interesting sample involving cocaine in there). "Decade" is a much more steady tune, an even, regular, six-minute procession of industrial beats. "Grave Mentor" is the album's gem, a 15-minute ambient piece that may be Delerium's single finest ambient tune, opening with five minutes of slow electronic humming interspersed with samples of Gregorian chanting, followed by several minutes of a lively, uplifting melody, then back to chanting and droning at the end. "Sorrow" follows a similar pattern, a slow, dark, and lushly beautiful ambient piece. Highly recommended for all able to appreciate the dark side of ambient."
Delerium's Grey Symphony

""Euphoric" is perhaps the darkest album Delerium has put together. Essentially one of the first dark-tech projects to really put forth a work that is at once haunting and mesmerizing. "Euphoric" drips with the madness of a stalker. The title-track introduces the listener into the adrendalized mind of some twisted raver. The music then proceeds to take the listener into a psychotic voyage of madness, murder, and repentence. All this is done without the use of vocals, simply by allowing the music to suggest (if not invoke) the mood of insanity and despair. "Euphoric" is a brilliant work unto itself. This album creates the back ground for another dark-tech opus, NIN's "The Downward Spiral". With "Euphoric" Delerium presents one of the crown jewels of dark-tech and dark ambient."
