Verbal Delirium can trace its history back to 1999, then formed by main composer and keyboardist Jargon. Eight years would go by before the band's line-up stabilized however, and it wasn't until 2010 that Verbal Delirium released their debut album. Come 2013 and a slightly revamped version of the band returns with their second album "From the Small Hours of Weakness". If you enjoy bands that incorporate moods, details and style elements from somewhat unusual sources into a progressive rock context, are generally fond of bands that strive for rather unexpected compositional developments and otherwise make an effort to come across as innovative, Verbal Delirium is a band you might want to investigate.
Created at the dawn of the Third Millenium, Verbal Delirium is a Progressive rock band from Greece. This trio, made of Jargon (Compositions, vocals & keyboards), Nikitas Kissnas (Guitar) and Nik Michailidis (Bass), plus a cello player and a drummer. Not exactly a musical delirium, but a collection of ten melodic songs and instrumental pieces brilliantly played and produced, somewhere between Progressive rock and hard-rock. The lyrics are briillantly performed, and the music isvery dynamic, with a wide range of influences. That includes Peter Hammill, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Camel, Porcupine Tree… Verbal Delirium combines powerful and sometimes heavy guitars, intense singing, strong melodies, and symphonic keyboards, in a pleasant and promising manner.
