Dutch symphonic metallers Delain have set We Are The Others as the title of their third studio album, due next spring via Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded at various studios in Stockholm, Sweden, with producer Jacob Hellner, renowned for his work with Rammstein and Apocalyptica, alongside the Epicentre team of Fredrik Thomander and Anders Wikstrom (Scorpions, Backyard Babies).

The album title was taken from a song by the same name featuring on the album. "We Are The Others" is an outsiders anthem, for everybody who, deliberately or not, diverts from the norm. Whether it's by looking different, acting different, or choosing a different path in life then is expected from you. We are the others: "Forget about the norm. Take off your uniform."



In other news, Delain will embark on a European headlining tour in April with Trillium as special guest, the metal project masterminded by American singer/songwriter Amanda Somerville. More shows will be announced soon.

So this lame band (I'm sorry if this offends anyone) has more dates on tour than Insomnium and Symphony X? Hell, when they supported Sonata a couple of years ago and bored the shit out of me on the Belgrade gig, I believe that Sonata tour had less dates than this.
At least one thing doesn't change - Belgrade dates are a rarity, no matter how extensive the tours are.

We Are The Others... not bad!

Already got my ticket for the Corporation show, should be great!

I like their albums, but have seen them live and compared to Epica, ReVamp and After Forever???? Bit weak.

Hope there are some good guests on the album.

Mmm wrong band picture. The line-up is totally different now.
DeepBlueSea - 09.12.2011 at 17:44  
Looking forward to it. They come to Switzerland =D

I enjoyed the Delain part of the concert...more than I did on some more prestigious bands. Have in mind that the band originally wasn't supposed to do any live shows + the singer is inexperienced, both of which did show on the gig.
I can only agree on the later part, Belgrade gets skipped more often than not (of recent/upcoming tours, Epica, Ensiferum, Nighwish come to mind), which is a sad truth...

Compared to After Forever, every female fronted symphonic metal band is weak But I have to agree that Delain aren't that good. They're good enough, but that's it. Maybe this new album will take them to greater heights. I doubt it, but here's hoping. There are many superior bands out there that don't have nearly as many fans: Hydria, Kerion, Dreams Of Sanity, Visions Of Atlantis, Legenda Aurea, Todesbonden, Lunatica - take your pick.

Well if they weren't ready to do it, they shouldn't have done it really. And their albums never stroke a chord within me, the songs with Marco Hietala did sound mildly interesting, but then again, so is everything featuring him I guess this falls under the "personal taste" tag, so I apologized in my first post.

Then again, even if more bands hit Belgrade, I wouldn't have the money to go. And bad luck always strikes me. For the Pain Of Salvation gig, I was ill to the point I could barely drag myself out of bed; and Iced Earth was missed due to exams.

The only promo shots on their website are of the chick. Not the band, JUST the chick.

Another fucking hot redhead metal singer added to my to-fap list. As for the band, couldn't give less a fuck.

That's pretty much exactly what they rely on for their male audience.

Ahh, one of the more insightful threads on MS about bands with female vocalists, I see... Even though I think Delain is a bit too polished/mainstream at times, their last album is excellent to me, and Charlotte's vocals in 2009's Metal Female Voices Festival were superb! I didn't think she would have had such a great live voice, proving yet again that very few venues seem to understand how to set up sound for metal bands with her type of vocals.

And I find it quite insulting to think that the only reason I would listen to the band is because Charlotte's looks are important to me, as part of their male audience. Who cares if the band hasn't done any promo shots since the 2009 April Rain session, yet their vocalist took a couple of shots and now they appear on the band's page. Plently of my female friends simply love their picture taken (much more than the guys) - and in the interim before the next promo sessions with the now current members, why not post them? I honestly have no idea where the band stands on the marketing side without asking them directly, but honestly it's unimportant. As a fan of the band (especially their 2009 disc), really any pro pictures are going to be cool to see to me, but in the end it's the music I want, up-to-date pics or not.

A stereotype is merely a generalization. Obviously you're not included in that stereotype, especially since you defend just about every female-fronted band in existence.

I think of Delain as a marketing tactic. The chick is "hot" (all dolled up and whatever with that oh-so-original pseudo-goth image) and that's their strength for people unlike yourself who look at the band pictures, see a hot redhead, and listen to their music (if they feel the need to) based on their vocalist having a set of tits.

she is not a redhead. Even on this picture she isn't, I saw upon closer inspection. So I was wrong about her dyeing her hair red. It's auburn, which is a type of brown.

Ok name I guess, hope its gonna be like the magnificent "April Rain"...!!

I really don't care that much about her hair color. :/

Well, except for Wessels and Westeholt, the rest of the band just seem to be a revolving door of semi-perminent musicians.

Timo Somers on guitar and Otto Schimmelpenninck seem to be quite permanent by now, especially Otto since he has been in the band since late 2009 or early 2010 by now.

Sander Zoer is the only one from April Rain who's still there though, aside from Wessels and Westerholt, of course.

Having 2 - 3 permanent members is a lot more than what Megadeth has

Maybe Delain want to emulate Gamma Ray and have a different lineup on all of their first 5 albums. Or Wessels and Westerholt are a pair of dicks who no-one wants to work with for very long.(hey, a bit like Mustaine then.)
