Delain Members Depart

2021-02-19 by Rolling Girl | 7 Comments
Symphonic metal band Delain is now a one man band as all members have left founding keyboardist Martijn Westerholt. Westerholt confirmed the split on social media, issuing the following statement:

"For the last year or so, the collaboration within the band ceased to work as well as it once had. Some of us were no longer happy with the current roles in the band. We all tried very hard to find a solution for over a year, but sadly we were unable to find one"

Westerholt has also vowed to keep the band alive stating that the next album will be featuring "special guests" and "many familiar faces".

Aw man this is so sad, their last record was, apart from the production, very good

Damn why would they do this right after releasing the best album in their career? What a shame.

That’s a real bummer. Apocalypse and Chill was a great album.

My guess is the entire rest of the band reform with a new keyboardist, and Delain becomes a parody of itself with constant member rotation and no real identity.

Of the 'big' symphonic metal bands, Delain was always the least remarkable anyway.

Also, the statements from the other members seems to tell a more complete story:
