I first saw Delain live in 2010 at the Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth, and have always had a bit of a soft spot for them since. I’m not the world’s biggest symphonic metal fan, but the Dutch band have always seemed to click with me since that live performance.
They’ve just released a new track from their forthcoming album The Human Contradiction and the lyric video for ‘Your Body Is A Battleground’ has more going on than most “lyric videos” that’s for sure.
I’m really not so sure about Marco Hietala‘s vocal theatrics at the 40-second mark, but it only happens once with Charlotte Wessels taking lead vocals for the rest of the song. I can look past it though. Watch the video now!
