Delain

Forced from his position as keyboardist for Dutch goth rock luminaries Within Temptation due to chronic illness in 2001, Martijn Westerholt worked to get himself back to match fitness, and over the course of the next few years he began to write music. Bringing together some of the more well-known musicians in the genre -- including Marko Hietala (Nightwish), Jan Yrlund, and Liv Kristine -- as well as lead vocalist Charlotte Wessels of To Elysium, Westerholt was able to realize a new musical project, and he named it Delain, inspired by the "Kingdom of Delain" from the Stephen King fantasy novel Eyes of the Dragon. Signed to Roadrunner, the group released a single ("Frozen") in 2006, and their debut album, Lucidity, in 2007. Though Westerholt had initially thought of Delain as a studio-only project, the success of the band's debut resulted in a tour, and that live incarnation would go on to provide the meat for 2009's April Rain, which utilized the outside services of Maria Ahn, cellist from the Ahn Trio and Hietala. 2012 saw the release of the group's critically acclaimed third studio album, We Are the Others, and two years later, the band issued The Human Contradiction via Napalm Records, which included guest spots from Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy, ex-the Agonist), Hietala, and George Oosthoek (ex-Orphanage). A new EP, Lunar Prelude, arrived in 2016 and featured the single "Turn the Lights Out," which was inspired by Neil Gaiman's comic book series The Sandman. ~ Chris True

I Saw them at the Greek (in LA) with Nightwish and Sabaton also and I flew all the way in from St Cloud, MN to do so. I had discovered the band only weeks prior to buying the tickets for their concert. Loved it.

the keyboards ruin it for me. I hear this music and i envision old f*rts dressing up like game of thrones women and I hear their children beg for them not to go to the store dressed like that, If I want to hear music to make me laugh ill listen to steel panther, their funny and their songs are good

I've seen Delain live a couple of times now. Not only are they amazing musicians, they are great people, too. Totally different from the stars we have here, they are down-to-eart h , friendly, and really appreciate their fans. Most of the northern European bands playing symphonic metal or related genres seem to be this way, but the Delain folks were particularly nice. I wish I could travel there more to be able to see these great groups more often.

Delain is opening for Nightwish in Phoenix in a few weeks- should be a memorable show- maybe a duet between Charlotte and Floor???

I'm just getting into Delain and they sound so awesome! Just as good as Nightwish and Within Temptation

I'm convinced. If I had a band, it would sound exactly like this. Only with faster tempos.

I had the privilege of seeing this amazing band on 10/01/14. I get to see them again with Nightwish in May.

if it wasn't for this site, I would've never known about this band. That's what I like about this, ditto with Soundtracks. If I didn't listen to those, I wouldn't have known about certain bands like Paramore via Twilight soundtrack

It's a project band from members of lots of great outfits, sounds just as good as you'd expect. Kind of an 80s electronica influence I dig too.

They're releasing a new album later this year apparently. I was never a real fan of Delain until I saw them live touring with Kamelot. Mother Machine and the high-energy bassist really changed my opinion of them. Probably going to pick up their new album when it comes out.
