Unsurprisingly, symphonic metal band Delain came out on top, with everyone I asked excited at the prospect of witnessing their first ever UK gig. More...

Dutch female fronted band Delain has issued the following road report and announcement about shooting a music video:
"With the recordings of a new videoclip on saturday, and a performance on Hollands biggest festival (and also western Europes biggest motorcross) on sunday, this weekend has been very exciting for Delain.
"The weekend started very early on saturday to look around on the location for the video. The owner of the place is an artist who makes his art out of old vinyl records. We all quite liked it accept for Ronald who was upset with the cut up metallica records. At 8.30, our make-up artist Nadia carefully brushed away the evidence of the early morning under our eyes and made us look like rockstars again. From 9 in the morning untill midnight we've been working on the video. All went very smooth and, without even having seen the result yet, we want to thank our video crew for making this awesome day possible. Here are some pictures of the day, not too much though, we don't want to spoil the surprise! ;)
"At the end of the day we all went home very satisfied and tired. the band crashed at Martijn's and Charlottes place to be closer to the location of the festival of the next day. The Zwarte Cross Festival! More...
