Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION have released the first in a series of videos in which guitarist Robert Westerholt and vocalist Sharon den Adel discuss the band, their latest album, “The Unforgiving”, and much more. In this first clip, which can be seen below, the two talk about the band’s formation and earliest days, and recall some personal career high points.
WITHIN TEMPTATION‘s fifth studio album, “The Unforgiving”, sold around 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 50 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Released on March 29, “The Unforgiving” was produced by Daniel Gibson and is based on a comic book story written by script writer Steven O’Connell (BloodRayne, Dark 48). The band asked comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness, X-Men) to draw the characters and scenery of “The Unforgiving”, which was made available via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, Japan and Australia.
