  1. Lucidity

    Lucidity is the debut full-length album by the Dutch symphonic metal band, Delain. It was released on September 4, 2006 by Roadrunner Records. It was released in the USA by Sensory Records on June 22, 2010. After the disbandment of the band which had recorded the Amenity demo, the keyboard player and main composer Martijn Westerholt decided to retain lead vocalist Charlotte Wessels and to record an album with the best session musicians available, without the perspective of bringing the songs on tour. He recruited for the project Marco Hietala on vocals and bass, Ad Sluijter, Guus Eikens and Jan Yrlund on guitars and Ariën van Weesenbeek on drums. Guest vocalists on the album were Sharon den Adel, Liv Kristine, and George Oosthoek. The album was recorded in different periods during 2005 and 2006 to accommodate the availability of the many musicians involved, often on tour with their bands. Lucidity peaked at No. 43 in Dutch charts and the success of the album pushed Westerholt to reorganize Delain as a touring band with new musicians.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Georges Bataille:

    Sanity is the lot of those who are most obtuse, for lucidity destroys one's equilibrium: it is unhealthy to honestly endure the labors of the mind which incessantly contradict what they have just established.

  2. Arthur Schopenhauer:

    How very paltry and limited the normal human intellect is, and how little lucidity there is in the human consciousness, may be judged from the fact that, despite the ephemeral brevity of human life, the uncertainty of our existence and the countless enigmas which press upon us from all sides, everyone does not continually and ceaselessly philosophize, but that only the rarest of exceptions do.
