Within Temptation #12: What is awaiting, I’ll embrace it. In the end, all I know, I have to face it.

Welcome to the
t w e l f t h
Within Temptation
Appreciation Thread






history

Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. They have always been classified by critics as gothic metal,
although the "gothic" influence varies with each album. Their most prominent and well-known sound is described as symphonic metal, although their earlier material, such as debut album Enter, was
mostly gothic metal. Enter even had a hint of doom metal. In an interview, den Adel said they fell into a symphonic rock genre with various influences. In a later interview with Dutch music platform
3VOOR12, den Adel stated that "we consider ourselves more a symphonic rock band ... in my opinion, we are no gothic band".

After the release of their debut album Enter in 1997, the band became prominent in the Dutch underground scene. It was not until 2001 that they became known to the general public, with the single
"Ice Queen" from their second album Mother Earth, which reached No. 2 on the Dutch charts. This was followed by the band winning the Conamus Exportprijs, a Dutch music award, four years in a
row, and a fifth in 2016. Their next albums The Silent Force (2004) and The Heart of Everything (2007) debuted at No. 1 on the Dutch charts. In 2008, they released a live DVD and CD, Black
Symphony, recorded with the Metropole Orchestra. This was followed in 2009 by An Acoustic Night at the Theatre, another live album.

The band's fifth studio album, The Unforgiving, was released in March 2011, alongside both a comic book series and a series of short films that together encompass a story. The first single, "Faster",
was released on January 21, and the first short film, Mother Maiden, was released on January 31. The band has sold more than 3.5 million copies of the album worldwide.

Their sixth studio album, Hydra, was released in early 2014 in Japan, Europe, and the United States. The album features guest appearances from various artists: Finnish singer Tarja Turunen,
who appears in the lead single "Paradise (What About Us?)"; Howard Jones, former vocalist of American metalcore band Killswitch Engage; Dave Pirner, lead vocalist of American alternative rock
band Soul Asylum; and American rapper Xzibit. The band had extensive airplay on BBC Radio 2 in the United Kingdom with one of the songs from the album, "Whole World Is Watching" featuring Pirner.

Even the streamed show has been delayed by a week.

Tarja's involved.

Thanks for the new thread!

Nothing is immune to delays these days, even virtual stuff. I probably wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to watch it last week, so I'm glad it was delayed. I didn't have the time to watch The Aftermath show Friday or yesterday, but since it was staying up for 48 hours I bought tickets and watched it this afternoon just now. Worth the money for sure, it was certainly spectacular.

The visual effects were stunning and impressive. I like how it was set up with actual set pieces, stage and some of the lighting but the rest was done with visual effects. It was quite the bombastic show! Digging it. Great selection of songs, wish it could have been little longer with a few more slower songs, but that's just me. And imo, missed opportunity to play Angels with Sharon's wings. All her outfits were very cool and classic. I liked the use of the Black Symphony overture. Made me want to re-watch Black Sympony again. Shed My Skin sounded so much better on this show, live. I knew it had to grow on me. It's definitely going to be one of those songs that sounds way better live than the studio version.

Though I was playing it on my laptop and wouldn't have been excessively loud, I closed my windows just in case I would be disturbing next door, though it's being rented out at the moment for people on holiday so I don't know if there's anyone in there. I sacrificed a cool breeze coming in through my room (it is super hot up here I'm melting) to watch it. As soon as it was over, I open the windows again and I hear live music playing outside. Ugh. Seriously?

They probably needed extra time for the effects, while it was available in 4K.

Yeah, I was surprised how well it worked! I was a little unsure about the whole thing when it was first announced, but they'll pulled it off as usual.

I was surprised by the track selection too, apart from the newest ones of course. I thought it would be longer than an hour, but I watched it twice so it works out.

You should have definitely started it over again, on full volume, with the window open.

Haha, I could have. I found out where the live music was coming from. It was from the pub on the other side of the river. Like how did it carry that far?! But yeah it wasn't next door. So I probably won't do that.

True, yeah, I can totally understand that they needed that extra time. Oh they're always good at pulling practically anything off. It's WT, its what they do. It was nice to hear Forsaken as the first track, that was unusual. I still wanted Angels though.

Yeah, I guess that you wouldn't have been able to make the pub hear it.

Of all the songs I could have predicted first, it wouldn't have been that.

No, that would have been bad.

Yeah, I wouldn't have predicted that either.

I found a loophole with the show, don't close it down and it stays up and still plays. I can watch it anytime if I keep it open!

True, I'm sure it will at some point. But I'm gonna exploit it for as long as possible
