Delain Live in Joliet

Dutch symphonic metal band Delain have built a solid reputation in the last few years and are currently co-headlining with Amorphis on tour across North America. Earlier this year Delain have released the successful EP “Hunter’s Moon” via Napalm Records and few days ago the video for the brand new single “Burning Bridges” which they are performing for the first time live on this tour. As expected the show at The forge in Joliet was packed as the North American fanbase keeps on growing exponentially every time Delain are back on tour and the crowd was quite impressed with the new single “Burning Bridges” and clearly in love with favorite songs such as “Fire With Fire”, “Hands Of Gold” and the melancholic ballad “We Are The Others”. Vocalist Charlotte Wessels delivered bright vocals with great confidence and interacted with the fans throughout the show while despite the absence of drummer Joey De Boer due to visa delays, substituted for now by Jan Rechberger of Amorphis, the band’s chemistry was evident from beginning to end.
