Timo Somers is enjoying one of the busiest years in the guitar galaxy, but you’d be forgiven for not realizing it. Over the course of a career that stretches back to the early 2000s, he’s made a name for himself as a consummate guitarist in the Dutch symphonic metal band Delain. 

In January he made a stop in Anaheim, California, to demo several brands at the 2020 NAMM Show; on February 7 Delain dropped a new album, Apocalypse and Chill (Napalm Records), and festival dates are on the horizon.
