Day 18 of the 30 Day Song Challenge is a song that you wish you heard on the radio. I’m going to take this as meaning a song that I really like but that isn’t played on the radio very often, and have chosen “April Rain” by Delain, taken from their second album of the same name.
Delain’s sound is very much like another of my favourite bands, Within Temptation, which is no co-incidence as it was founded by a former WT member. They are somewhat more mainstream, but this doesn’t stop them from being quite awesome. “Invidia”, another song of theirs, is also one of my favourites.
There’s likely to be a third album soon, which I’m very much looking forward to.
