Saturday Spotlight, Vol. VI

on October 20, 2012

For the latest episode of The Spotlight, this week’s focus is going to be on a group that I didn’t discover until my recent dealings with Pandora (the music broadcasting website).  It seems that one day, while I was on the keyword “Apocalyptica”, the band that crept up every couple of songs was a group called Delain.

Turns out that Delain (a five person group from the Netherlands) has been around since 2002 and only has three released albums, so far.  The thing that makes this band special for me, however, is the vocal might of the lead singer, Charlotte Wessels.  With a voice only rivaled (in my opinion) by fellow Dutchwoman Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation, her excellent range is clearly visible in most of their songs.

Songs like “April Rain” (the title cut from their second album), “Shattered”, “Sleepwalker’s Dream” (excellent song), “We Are The Others” (title of their newest album), and “Mother Machine” are what’s made this group so much of a highlight to my ever-expanding music catalogue.

If the name of the game is to be better with each album released, Delain has more than accomplished that goal…in spades.  They are definitely a group that I have no problem shouting out kudos for…well-deserved and worth every second of my listening pleasure (and yours).

P.S.:  I will be checking on my stats but there may be fewer posts from now on, as my attempt to salvage a brilliant, yet weird, story from my past into a full-on science fiction story now has to take precedence; I’ve put it off for WAY too long and NOW (instead of the time when it was conceived twenty-some years ago) is the time to do it!
