Delain

Postby kipper64 » Wed Apr 28, 2010 8:29 pm

Currently working on their third album, DELAIN take time out make their first ever UK festival appearance at SONISPHERE this summer. Having captivated audiences across Europe with their spellbinding symphonic metal, the Dutch four piece’s profile of late has risen sharply with the release of last year’s “April Rain” via Roadrunner Records, and show’s no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Says lead singer CHARLOTTE WESSELS:
“We’re very much looking forward to rocking Sonisphere 2010, one of the coolest festivals around! It’s a great opportunity to come back and play for our UK fans.”


Another UK first at Sonisphere it seems. Discuss :D

First UK outdoor festival - they played Hard Rock Hell last December.

If you like female fronted rock/metal with keys but not so much of an opera (Within Temptation or old-school Nightwish) voice, then you might like these

Very good band, but I hope they play 'April Rain' this time

Sorry it's so late, but MOTHERFUCKING YES!

Amazing band, one of my faves, who I never thought I'd see playing in the UK never mind at Soni! However, I'm absolutely over the moon with this announcement! :lol:

I think they're a bit generic tbh. Nothing new, just nightwish 2.0

They'll be around for a year or so, then they'll drop off the radar.

If anything, they sound more like Within Temptation. But a lot better, being that their keyboardist used to be in WT.

Unless it's Lacuna Coil or the headliners on the mainstages, I think I'll wander over to Bohemia to see Ms Wessels and crew. 8-)

Me and you need to meet up in their crowd. You have Tuomas in your pic, so you clearly have brilliant music taste! :P

OK, I'm now officially VERY HAPPY.
Lacuna Coil AND Delain playing at Sonisphere? Two of my favourite FFM (female fronted metal) bands!
I couldn't be happier...
... unless the mighty Nightwish were playing, of course. But I'll let 'em off, since the lead singer's preggers...

The reason they sound like Within Temptation is cos it's the old keyboardist to WT's new band.

Yeah. He left Within Temptation I think, and then formed Delain. It started off as just his project with guest vocalists and Charlotte, for the first album, but then became a fully fledge band.
