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

tophatpanda1 2 3

rogerblock according to what I have heard the book of enoch is not accepted by the majoraty of christian faiths. and I have to ask have actually done any research on what you said?I don't intend to insult your beliefs but you're being a bit of an a** about it.
Truly in love this is my escape music my unconditiona l happiness <3
I'm just commenting to nudge down rogerblocke' s affront to human decency. That is what is truly evil in this world, you son of a b****.
Sharon's voice <3
I pity you rogerblocke. None so blind as those who will not see.
rogerblocke
The god of the Jews is pure evil and the father of nothing more than sacrifice while loving the scent of burning flesh...Bett e r read exodus and the book of Enoch 1st....

No one ...ever but Me Boyoz. We stood the Oak Creek Canyon. We stood the Fire Wall!
Absolutely fantastic!
Rock on
Just checked the Unforgiving album out of the library. Wow, Sharon's voice is just exquisite. This is so far the best band Pandora has introduced me to!
Within Temptation will always have a special place in my heart, but I feel they definitely peaked with their Silent Force album. Everything since, while still very good, has seemed somewhat formulaic and predictable. They almost fall into an "easy listening" subgenre of symphonic metal because their tracks are relatively simple (musically and lyrically) and I find I don't have to think much about them. Not that it's a criticism, just an observation. One of few favorites who hasn't yet recorded w
Sharon den Adel is the Voice of Goth /Opera!
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works.
Westerholts ...Guitar - Riffs are amazingly WET.
Politicians listen to the Voice ! Gaia our planet needs less Greed from us. Please, listen & legislate correctly!
Please. If you know the voice. Of Sharon den Adel ...I believe it's the new Stevie-Nicks . Ok
Really trying to overdo on Sharon den Adels Voice... Not Woking. selaVie!
Goth Opera... Seems to Rule my exsistence!
"BowWow"!
Haven't heard a single song off Hydra on Pandora yet. It's starting to bug me considering they're listing it in their discography.
Her voice is haunting, mesmerizing, and moving all at the damn time
avareedy
I agree! They should do a colab with Evanescence! They'd sound awesome
daeudi_454
Calling them Goth Metal is insufficient . Symphonic Metal is a better description.
The howling is there best song , I love that song it's so awesome .
They have great songs. They should do a colab with evanescence! ! ! ! ! ! !
They have some pretty awesome songs
Does anyone in north Carolina think this is one of the most awesome. Band other than myself . I have the concert with the metropole and wt best show ever .....

Stephen077 can you give me more lyrics I might be able to help you
There is a song that I'm thinking about. The chorus has "now I" or "now I'm" and I can't think whether it's within temptation or nightwish. Please help
@imartynau.. Y o u are an idiot! Either you are spamming crap in hopes of monetary gain, or you are just an idiot plain and simple! If we are going to go on a supernatural / s u p e r s t i t i o u s level...may Odin send many ravens to tear out and feast upon your entrails and Loki torment you for all eternity!
skh.stonelak e
Our Solemn Hour! Is the best!
This song makes me feel like someone has ripped my heart out and I have gone to heaven
She and Tarja(former lead singer of Nightwish) did a song together and its amazing!
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.

Oh, her and Amy Lee would do a great duet. Their voices would compliment well.
