Feat. Brendan Perry (DEAD CAN DANCE) on 2 tracks! In two panel CD wallet including lyric booklet. On Tour and on the Soundtrack to the new Film ‘Le Divan de Staline’ with Gerard Depardieu and Emanuelle Seigner (in Cinemas from January 17 2017)!

"...shrouded in mysterious melancholy, an album full of narcotic beauty that threads together climax after climax." De Subjectivisten (11/2016)

Aret Madilian and Beatrice Valalntin both self-taught musicians, come from different backgrounds. The Istanbul born Aret, an American of Greek-Armenian roots who grew up in Los Angeles and the poetic French influences of Beatrice, play a strong role in Deleyaman's alchemy.

Their seventh album paints a sonic picture of a brief day spent in an old dwelling visiting memories and dreams. The 57 minute album contains 11 tracks, three of which are sung in French inspired by the poetry of Paul Verlaine, Pierre de Marbeuf and Paul Eluard. All other lyrics by Aret Madilian. The Lover, The Stars & The Citadel includes a prestigious guest and friend Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance), making an appearance on two of the album's tracks (Greek bouzouki on ‘Escape’ and percussion programming on ‘Autumn Sun’). All songs were recorded in Deleyaman’s studio located in a rural coastal village of Normandy, France. The influences of band-leader Aret Madilian lay between melodic post-punk, Darkwave, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave.

Normandy-based band Deleyaman is perhaps the best contender to fill the hole left by Dead Can Dance's dissolution. Deleyaman not only shares that legendary duo's ability to combine traditional instruments like the saz (a type of Turkish lute) and the duduk (Armenian woodwind instrument), but also a musical eclecticism. Deleyaman's music is difficult to define with words. It has been described as ethereal, darkwave, gothic, world or folk while their work has been compared to a few artists or bands that have come before. DELEYAMAN in their own words: ‘We obviously understand the inevitable need for classifications and comparisons but we believe this to be a rather subjective process and if possible, we prefer not to categorize our music into a single genre.’

Deleyaman - Secret Treasures (04:46)
Secret Treasures by Deleyaman from the album The lover, The stars & The citadel Release date November 18 Certain excerpts from the 1986 film "Man facing southeast" (Hombre mirando al sudeste) by Eliseo Subiela. All other footage : Anonymous With love and solidarity to all the people in the footage, ill, disabled or in need of shelter, compassion and understanding. Don't let the hands kill forever Don't let the eyes look the other way Don't let the hearts die and shiver Don't let your conscience run away I'll always stand with the broken I'll always be on the other side Don't you forget that the fallen May be the price you pay for your pride I feel the cold and the wild winds Storms brewing from under the stones I hear the sound of the woodwinds Echoing amongst the gravestones I ain't no mercenary troubadour Singing for your passing pleasures I ain't without purpose or a tool I have my own secret treasures Don't wait for hope to fall from the heavens Don't fear the rage or the wrath of Gods Don't let your culture become your terror Don't let your silence be their guiding light I'll always be by words unspoken I'll always stand across your pride Don't you forget that the shaken May fall and shadow your fiery light I feel the cold and the wild winds Storms brewing from under the stones I hear the sound of the woodwinds Echoing amongst the gravestones I ain't no mercenary troubadour Singing for your passing seasons I ain't without spirit or unmoved I have my own secret treasures
