When I think of Goth I think of mostly as the lyrical darkness. That is the thing that I very much like. There’s the style as well and I’m a very big fan of wearing black lipstick to go grocery shopping because you can, you know there is something about it which I’m very much drawn to
From the explosive, adventurous opening track through to the surprisingly epic closing track, The Human Contradiction is easily Delain’s best album to date, with a winning combination of heavy riffs, atmospheric keyboards, excellent vocals, and insanely catchy choruses. Fans of symphonic metal or female fronted metal in general who have never heard the band before are highly recommended to start with this album.
