Delain belongs to the absolute top of the symphonic rock and metal scene. Not only in their home country, but also internationally it is now a big name. With countless releases and major international tours, Delain has been an established worldwide name for more than a decade. Delain toured with bands like Nightwish, Sabaton, Within Temptation, Kamelot and featured at festivals like Wacken, Graspop and Fortarock.
Delain was founded in 2002 by ex-Within Temptation keyboardist Martijn Westerholt. The band has grown rapidly in recent years and evolved into a tight group. Delain has five albums to its name. Individual band members worked with prominent artists such as Sharon den Adel from Within Temptation, Marco Hietala from Nightwish and many others. Currently the band is working hard to produce the successor to their latest studio album “Moonbathers”. The release of this new album is scheduled for 2019.
Together with singer Judith Rijnveld, Ivar de Graaf (ex-Within Temptation) explored a way to combine both their influences into songs that didn’t bound themselves to a specified genre or style. With influences like Porcupine Tree and Kate Bush, but also classical singers as Cecilia Bartoli and traditional Folk music in their mind they started recording songs in their home studio in 2005. In May of 2007 Kingfisher Sky recorded their first album “Hallway of Dreams” produced by Jochem Jacobs (Textures) and Bouke Visser (Split Second Sound). Their second album titled “Skin of the Earth” was released in 2010. After a successful crowdfunding campaign their third album “Arms of Morpheus” saw the light of day in October 2014. Last spring their fourth studio album “Technicoloured Eyes” (2018) was released. The most personal album yet and leaning more towards progressive rock without losing the elements that make Kingfisher Sky unique.http://www.kingfishersky.com/
