Although it may be argued that ''Front Line Assembly'' has the largest cult following of all of Leeb and associates' projects, ''Delerium'' is undoubtedly the most financially successful. In addition to these two mainstays, Leeb, Fulber, Peterson, and Balch have all created a variety of similarly veined projects such as ''Conjure One,'' ''Fauxliage,'' ''Equinox,'' ''Intermix,'' ''Noise Unit,'' ''Pro-Tech,'' and ''Synæsthesia.''

In addition to these two mainstays, Leeb, Fulber, Peterson, and Balch have all created a variety of similarly veined projects such as ''Conjure One,'' ''Fauxliage,'' ''Fauxliage'' (basically Delerium fronted by Leigh Nash), ''Equinox,'' ''Intermix,'' ''Noise Unit,'' ''Pro-Tech,'' and ''Synæsthesia.''


Added DiffLines:

* ''Mythologie'' (2016)


* FollowTheLeader: ''Semantic Spaces'' caught the band some flack for re-using the beats from Music/{{Enigma}}'s "Sadeness" and ''Coil'''s "Windowpane," as well as the same sample library ''Deep Forest'' used to create their debut album. Their follow-up, ''Poem,'' avoided this.


* SmallNameBigEgo: Averted big time with Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber. Despite their popularity and their success, both men have remained very humble and private. Fulber is one of the most sought after producers in the music industry and has gone onto producing and working on countless albums. Leeb has contributed to various other projects, and provided the soundtracks for the video games ''VideoGame/{{Quake}} III Arena'' (as a part of Sonic Mayhem) and ''VideoGame/AirMech.''

Delerium's early work is considered pioneering in the field of dark ambient music. Over time, ambiance took prominence over industrial noise and voice samples from films, culminating in ''Spheres'' and ''Spheres II'' in 1994, which focused squarely on ambient music and dub techno. Sandwiched in between these albums was ''Semantic Spaces,'' the first album to feature a singer (Kirsty Thirsk, who would be credited as "The Voice of Delerium") and a sharp swerve into the realm of world beat and ethnic electronica. ''Delerium'''s output since 1994 has grown ever poppier, receiving comparisons to the works of ''Deep Forest,'' ''Future Sound of London,'' and Music/{{Enigma}} (''Semantic Spaces'' even uses [[FollowTheLeader many of the same samples ''Deep Forest'''s debut did.]]) ''Delerium'' have scored a few decent radio hits since the 1997 release of ''Karma,'' with "Aria," "After All," and "Innocente (Falling in Love)" still in rotation on some pop stations.

The band started as a duo between Leeb and fellow ''Front Line Assembly'' member Michael Balch. Their debut: ''Faces, Forms & Illusions,'' contained sample-heavy collages of industrial and dark ambient music akin to Music/SkinnyPuppy and ''Front Line Assembly,'' of which Leeb and ''Faces'' collaborator Rhys Fulber were members. Fulber took over for Balch in time for ''Delerium'''s second album: ''Morpheus'' - a position he has held until the present, barring a brief absence that resulted in the 2000 album ''Poem,'' made instead by Leeb with Chris Peterson (also an ''Front Line Assembly'' alum).
