Label: Third Mind
"Euphoric" is perhaps the darkest album Delerium has put together. Essentially one of the first dark-tech projects to really put forth a work that is at once haunting and mesmerizing. "Euphoric" drips with the madness of a stalker. The title-track introduces the listener into the adrendalized mind of some twisted raver. The music then proceeds to take the listener into a psychotic voyage of madness, murder, and repentence. All this is done without the use of vocals, simply by allowing the music to suggest (if not invoke) the mood of insanity and despair. "Euphoric" is a brilliant work unto itself. This album creates the back ground for another dark-tech opus, NIN's "The Downward Spiral". With "Euphoric" Delerium presents one of the crown jewels of dark-tech and dark ambient.
