We Are the Others by Delain

“The first time I heard Delain was when I saw them live opening for Sonata Arctica. It's not often that an opening band will outshine the main act, but they did—as a fan of Sonata Arctica seeing them for the first time, I even have to admit they blew them out of the water that night. I'd never heard of the band before and didn't know any of their songs. This was one of the songs they played, and I noticed it got a big reaction from their fans. When I went through their catalog later, I saw that this song was written in dedication to Sophie Lancaster, whose story I also had not heard. It's awful, if you weren't aware of it (google it). In addition to raising awareness, this song is a positive statement of support for those who have been labeled "others", for whatever reason. It's a great song, and the rest of the band's catalog is really solid if you like melodic metal.”

My favorite Delain song. If you don't know the story of the "Sophie" she mentions, read here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Sophie_Lancaster
