Dutch symphonic metal band Delain have been confirmed as headliners of next years ‘The Dames of Darkness Festival’ @ ‘The Robin 2’ in Bilston near Birmingham.
The event which returns by popular demand after 5 years takes place on Saturday 11th May and features 8 female fronted metal bands from the UK and Europe.
Delain who released their album in June on Roadrunner records entitled ‘We Are The Others’ are looking forward to playing to their UK fans again having last played in the UK before the album was released due to label politics. A much publicized campaign by their fans to get it released was successful and now they will get their chance to see the band perform songs now familiar to them.
Also on the bill are Visions of Atlantis, a band which formed in 2000 and signed to Napalm records. Visions of Atlantis are well known in the genre and have toured the world supporting acts such as Nightwish and Epica. They have not however played in the UK before so the festival will be their UK debut.
Highly rated French ‘philharmonic metal’ band Whyzdom have just released their second album ‘Blind’ and will be playing the UK for only their second time but first with new singer Elvyne Lorient.
Festival creators and hosts Apparition are amongst the bands and they have also invited Azylya from Belgium and Ex-Libris from The Netherlands.
Kicking things off will be Incarna, followed by Chemikill both from the UK.
