Within Temptation, a Dutch symphonic metal band, has recently released the song and video, “Paradise (What About Us?),” from their upcoming album, "Hydra." Fans of this female-fronted band will be treated to a spectacular concert when the group goes on tour in spring 2014. Those lucky enough to get tickets are always in for an unforgettable night, thanks to Sharon den Adel's powerful soprano vocals combined with her partner, Robert Westerholt's rhythmic guitar skills. Their concerts are well known for being a mix of dynamic ballads and symphonic anthems that take full advantage of the group’s musical and performance talents.
The band released their first album, "Enter," in 1997, followed by "Mother Earth" in 2000. "The Silent Force" came out in 2004 and was certified gold in just a week in the Netherlands, Belgium and Finland. It also ended up being certified platinum in the Netherlands. "The Heart of Everything" came out in 2007 to critical success, reaching gold status in three countries and platinum in the Netherlands. It hit number one on the Dutch Albums chart and broke into the US Billboard Top 200, peaking at number 106. "The Unforgiving" album came out in 2011 and was certified gold in Poland. Metal Storm awarded it third place in the 2011 Best Symphonic Metal Album of the Year list. The band’s next project, "Hydra," will feature guest artists Howard Jones from Killswitch Engage, Dave Pirner and Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish singer). Within Temptation will hit the road for a world tour at the end of February 2014, and tickets are now available. The group looks forward to seeing all their fans at the concerts.
