Slowly we were getting to the headliner and the start was formed by Delain who had their new album "We Are The Others" with them. The Dutch are momentarily on their album tour and passed by also at Wieze where they did not only burn down a musical fireworks but also were the only ones that really were extensively using that on stage.
I already saw them in the beginning of the year during their current tour at Enschede and already to that time it was a really great evening. That was this one too although the show of course was made much more opulent because of having a way bigger stage. They played a cross section across the former albums with songs like "Pristine" or "The Gathering" of their debut "Lucidity" or "Go Away" of "April Rain". Main part of the evening were of course the pieces of their latest album whereas the name giving song "We Are The Others" may not be missing for sure. To that Charlotte Wessels came with a very special paper made dress onto the stage from the belonging video, a very impressive moment. To be able to change the outfit ex Orphanage grunter George Oosthoe cam onto the stage not singing a Delain song as duet together with Charlotte but instead the Within Temptation classic "Deep Within". Only by that Charlotte seemed to have enough time to get into the complex dress. Interesting idea, but did not blow me away.
A great show, all band members having absolutely fun playing and a crowd being in a good mood to party. After the furious beginning with Arkona Delain could easily keep the atmosphere up high and it was simply fun watching them, singing along and party with them. But the evening was not yet over.
