9. = Delain – We Are The Others Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers Delain have released a video to their song We Are The Others. It’s an ode to the tragic death of Sophie Lancaster in 2007, who was brutally attacked because of her goth looks. Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend were beaten comatose by a gang of youths in Lancashire, because of their goth looks. Sophie later died from her injuries. Delain singer Charlotte Wessels says: “Sophie’s story hit close to home for us, being part of a subculture ourselves. But it’s in no way an individual case; people are discriminated against – all the time, to the point of violence – based on their cultural or ethnic background everywhere. We Are The Others is our own ‘outsiders’ anthem’ for everybody who, deliberately or not, diverts from the norm. Whether it’s by looking different, acting different, or choosing a different path in life than is expected from you.” We Are The Others is the title track of Delain’s most recent studio full-length.
