Forced from his position as keyboardist for Dutch goth rock luminaries Within Temptation due to chronic illness in 2001, Martijn Westerholt worked to get himself back to match fitness, and over the course of the next few years began to write music. Bringing together some of the more well-known musicians in the genre (including Marko Hielata, Jan Yrlund, and Liv Kristine) as well as lead vocalist Charlotte Wessels of To Elysium, Westerholt was able to realize a new musical project, and he named it Delain. Signed to Roadrunner, the group released a single ("Frozen") in 2006, and their debut album in 2007, entitled Lucidity. ~ Chris True, Rovi
