Within Temptation

Goth metal stars Within Temptation marry the guitar-driven force of hard rock with the sweep and grandeur of symphonic music, and the results have made them one of the most popular bands ever in the Netherlands. Within Temptation were formed in 1996 by guitarist Robert Westerholt and vocalist Sharon den Adel, who are partners on stage and off. Within Temptation's early material caught the attention of the Dutch label DSFA, which signed the group to a record deal; the band's first album, Enter, was released in 1997. Up until this time, Within Temptation had been a studio project, but the success of the album led to invitations to play several live shows, including the Dynamo Music Festival, one of the biggest live music events in the Netherlands. Within Temptation demonstrated their strength as a concert act, and began playing Germany, Austria, Belgium, and the Czech Republic. Booked to play Dynamo's main stage in 1998, Within Temptation felt recording new material was in order, and they released the Dance EP for the occasion. Shortly afterwards, Within Temptation went on hiatus as the group's members dealt with personal commitments and Westerholt and den Adel built a studio for their ambitious recording projects.

In late 2000, Within Temptation returned with their second full-length album (and first for Sony), Mother Earth, and the band continued to appear at major music festivals in Europe and the Netherlands; the album was a major commercial success, and the song "Ice Queen" was released as a single, rising to number two on the Dutch charts. After several years of steady touring (including major festival appearances in France and Mexico), Within Temptation returned to the studio to record their third album, 2004's The Silent Force, an ambitious project featuring a full orchestra and 80-voice choir accompanying the band. It was their first disc to be released simultaneously in the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe, and became a major commercial success, going platinum at home and reaching the Top Ten in Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Finland. Having become the Netherlands' best-selling international act, Within Temptation finally landed an American record deal with the venerable metal imprint Roadrunner, which released their fourth album, The Heart of Everything, in 2007. Black Symphony, a live CD/DVD recorded at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam with a full choir and orchestra, followed in 2008.

Their 2011 effort The Unforgiving was a concept album heavily influenced by '80s pop and rock, and supported by a series of short films as well as a comic book written by Steven O’Connell. It was a great commercial success, hitting the top ten in seven European countries, and the band toured heavily in promotion of it. In 2012 the band's contract with Roadrunner came to an end and they decided to self-release their next album, signing distribution deals with Nuclear Blast for the USA and, strangely, Dramatico, Mike Batt's pop label and home to Katie Melua, for the UK. Their sixth album, Hydra, was slated for release in February 2014 and saw them branching out into a number of new and unexpected styles, as symbolized by the titular, many-headed mythical beast. It included guest vocal performances by Howard Jones of Killswitch Engage, Soul Asylum's Dave Pirner, rapper Xzibit, and former Nightwish vocalist Tarja Turunen on the single "Paradise (What About Us?)." ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

I learned of them in 2007 with "Angels". A fan used the song to make a Harry Potter video and I never looked back.

This is very pretty: The lead singer could just as easily be a Celtic music star. What a lovely voice! Not quite the emotional oomph as Amy Lee from Evanescence, but I'm definitely going to be checking out this band!

Were there such a thing as a holy spirit to banish worldly pain in imagination only does such exist to abolish this worlds evil bliss pondering an ageing face while loneliness brings no new grace where wh*r*s live free to be giving affections to whom they lust but never me as cries of foul are heard when their sisters and offspring are tortured & burned will this world ever cease will a decent place of real love be seen for a righteous god will not with such forsaken miseries except in my dreams

This our solemn day falls back to retribution unpaid as the light dies we close the blinds on what awaits outside within the final hour never to be cleaned of martyred blood our lives are showered so life laid in shame can continue to hide the blame as our cries subside without a battle for freedom over restrictions placed by opposing sides and we allow every telling stain showing the story of their unrighteous gain without cost as they display abominable acts dancing on the backs of the lost

there is no such thing as goth metal, its just goth, just as there is no such thing as glam metal its just glam. metal evokes a certain feeling in a person, a feeling of power and of belonging where that person may not feel like they belong any where else. you cant just ascribe a adj in front of the word metal and try to piggyback onto its roots.
