It seems that Delain has been acquiring a great deal of popularity since last year’s release “We Are The Others”. In order to please the ever-growing fanbase, Delain is releasing a compilation entitled “Interlude”. Unfortunately there are only two brand new songs, so this mini album seems like a way to keep the audience’s interest as the band prepare to tour as main support for Within Temptation.
“Breathe On Me” is not different from any other Delain’s song. The chorus in particular is the same as the hit song “We Are The Others”. The song structure is extremely simplistic and you can barely hear the guitar work.
The other brand new song is entitled “Collars And Suits”. Here the lead guitar is actually distinguishable but the songwriting doesn’t show any deviation. The melodic piano breakdown followed by the obvious chorus is just too predictable to attract the attention of a wider fanbase.
If you’re a big fan you will easily appreciate the new piano driven ballad version of “We Are The Others” as well as the various live versions of some previous songs.
