Throughout their career, Dutch rockers Delain have espoused a melodic, larger-than-life sound meant to inspire and empower their fans, even when tackling somber subject matter. Their sixth album, Apocalypse & Chill (Feb. 7, Napalm Records), is no exception -- although given the topsy-turvy state of the world, there is an underlying tension and shades of darkness that imbue the album with a greater weightiness lyrically and musically.
