Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Delerium is from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, formed in 1987, originally as another side project (Intermix being the more techno-sounding project) of the influential industrial music act, Front Line Assembly.

Delerium has traditionally been a two-person project, but the only constant member throughout its history has been Bill Leeb. After Michael Balch left both Front Line Assembly and Delerium, Bill Leeb worked with Rhys Fulber, and the two released several albums under the Delerium moniker; these years saw a gradual stylistic change from darker ambient to a more danceable sound. A collaboration with Sarah McLachlan in their Karma album, “Silence”, won them a certain amount of popular recognition and spawned a great deal of remixes.

After the release of Karma, Rhys Fulber left to pursue other interests, and Bill Leeb teamed up with producer Chris Peterson to release Poem. 2003, however, saw the reunion of Leeb and Fulber for the release of Chimera. The collaboration continued with Delerium’s most recent album, Nuages Du Monde. Delerium’s music has additionally been featured in movies such as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Brokedown Palace.

2) Delerium was also a act from Ottumwa, Iowa, USA. Formed by John Huston of Citrus Boyin 1994, Delerium played and recorded mostly in the Eastern Iowa area. It also included Paige Clause on drums and Sam Long on guitars. Delerium broke up shortly after 1994’s album Pirate Alley, John and Sam went on to form band The Smirnoffs with Mark Langgin.

    Stromlauf, I understand what you mean, certainly because these guys have 1000's of projects (Intermix, FLA, Synaesthesia, Noise Unit, Cuyberaktif, Will and in a further extent Decree. But don't forget that Semantic Spaces is from 1994 and that is, in my opinion, their first release with the lounge sounds. So in fact, their old sound (which I also prefer) has only lasted for about 6 years...

    Still can't get the reason why such a different music goes under the same moniker. Delerium could be easily split into 3 separate projects, thus avoiding the nonsence of comparing their early stuff with 2000+ pop releases.

    ...forever & ever I was completely and psychedelically inspired by their two Spheres. Then of course, electronic industrial/darkwave opus Morpheus. Flowers Become Screens and other trip songs by Kristy Thirsk are awesome and amazing as the later works like Euphoria (Firefly) and After All feat. Jael ... Probably, Bill Leeb is one of my influential composers and masterminds)))

    какая же огромная разница между первыми релизами и последними. как же можно было так скатиться? и всё равно большое спасибо данному коллективу за такую замечательную музыку. Spiritual Archives создает в голове своего рода атмосферу ада.

    So good to hear Kristy Thirsk's angelic voice once again in a Delerium song. [3] <<< I've never understood why they never created a side project with her (ala Leigh Nash & Fauxliage) [2] <<<Maybe cuz Kristy IS the Voice of Delerium?

    Delerium is perfect for Amethystium, Diane Arkenstone and Nicholas Gunn fans. Lounge + ethereal = travel to Brahman
