In 2006 Jargon (composer and writer) created Verbal Delirium.
Influenced both from the alternative and the fundamentally progressive sounds of rock, the band's 1st official album "So Close & Yet So Far Away" was released in 2010. The album received very positive feedback by reviewers and it became accessible to progressive audience and fans from all over the world. It was followed by many live performances and a successful participation in European competition "Eurock Marathon 2012" at Berlin.
In February 2013, Verbal Delirium released, their 2nd official album "From The Small Hours Of Weakness”. It is dark, ambient, experimental and it reveals the band's tension to explore new musical horizons.
Verbal Delirium participated in important European and Greek live events: Prog Power Europe (October 2013) in the Netherlands with Fates Warning and Shadow Gallery as headlining acts, Summer's End Festival in UK (September 2014), and support act for God Is An Astronaut live in Athens (November 2014).
In 2015 Verbal Delirium began to work on their third album and completed recordings and mixing in early 2016. In the meantime, they continued their live appearances and shared the stage with some of the finest bands the Greek progressive scene has to offer.
In October 2016, “The Imprisoned Words Of Fear”, Verbal Delirium's 3rd album became available worldwide in Digpak CD and digital download format by Bad Elephant Music (UK) records label. The latest instalment in the band's musical evolution, while still grounded in the Seventies school of progressive rock, incorporates heavier elements from metal, the intricate instrumentation and strong melodic grounding of jazz, along with electronica elements. It was co-produced by Jargon and Leonidas Petropoulos and mastered by Daniel Bowles at Seren Sound Studio.
The band had the honor to be included at HRH Prog festival 2017 line up and performed with high acceptance in front of an enthusiastic audience. Reviews and comments after the show were amazing.
The band's immediate plans include continuous live appearances for the promotion of their latest work. They are already booked for “Midsummer's Madness” in London (UK) and for Nieuwerkerk a/d IJssel(NL) on 17th of December.
