Metropolis Records next month will reissue the first seven albums by Front Line Assembly spinoff Delerium — originally released between 1988 and 1994, and now out of print — on limited-edition 2LP white-vinyl sets and CD, as well as digital and streaming formats.
The remastered editions of Faces, Forms and Illusions (1988), Morpheus (1989), Syrophenikan (1990), Spiritual Archives (1991), Stone Tower (1991), Spheres I (1994) and Spheres II (1994) are due out May 6, and can now be pre-ordered in vinyl and CD bundles through Bandcamp.
Front Line Assembly mastermind Bill Leeb started Delerium in 1987 with Michael Balch, a collaborator in the industrial act, as a way to make electronic music that was more ambient in nature. Balch left after Delerium’s first album, and Leeb enlisted another FLA member, Rhys Fulber, to continue work on the ambient act — which ultimately became more commercially successful than Front Line Assembly.
