Existential Reflections in Post-Black Metal Echoes


Deliria is an evocative post-black metal band from the San Francisco Bay Area, formed in 2017 by David Scanlon (DAWN OF OUROBOROS). A fundamental critique of consciousness, the band crafts ordinary life in endogenous melancholia. Quickly joined by vocalist Adam Rupp (KILL THE MESSENGER), the duo sought drummer Jared Klein (RIVERS OF NIHIL) to record their debut album, Nausea.

Inspired by existential dread, Rupp's tortured misery and Scanlon's somber melodies coalesce in bleak pessimism and gloomy aurorae. In 2018, the additions of guitarists Brent Rockwell (THE UNDYING) and Jade Forsythe (EMBRIUM) secured a live lineup, with Deliria performing alongside acts such as TYR, ULCERATE, and THE ZENITH PASSAGE.

The band re-entered the studio in 2020 to record their second full-length album, Phantasm. Bolstered by Andrew Baird (FALLUJAH) on drums, Deliria expands its melancholic approach, this time highlighting its morbid and occult arrangements.

Deliria’s current lineup features the addition of drummer Brandon Clevenstine (SYMBOLIK). Together, the quintet has gathered enthusiasm among fans of their influences, such as KATATONIA, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, and FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM.
