|Within Temptation Album Update|
2010-12-21 by Trey Spencer STAFF | 13 Comments
|The new single,"Where Is The Edge," has apparently been causing a lot of debate and speculation among fans. Enough so, that vocalist Sharon Den Adel wanted to make it clear that it doesn't showcase the full spectrum of the forthcoming concept album, The Unforgiving.|
"Obviously, the discussions about the new album have really been set on fire by 'Where Is The Edge'.
"But for the people who liked it, we're afraid that it's really not revealing much of what's to come…
"From the moment we started writing this album, we felt it was time for change, to take a bigger step in our musical development then we've done with the last two albums. But instead of getting inspiration from unknown territories, we've found them in our musical roots, the metal, rock and even pop hits of the late '80s [and] beginning 90s.
"Now, we can tell you about the new songs, but the only way to explain it and for you to judge it, is to hear it.
"A fact is that 'The Unforgiving' is the album with the most diversity between the songs then ever before. Containing the heaviest riffs we've ever played, lots of uptempo moments, guitar solos, but at the same time also some of the most catchy stuff ever. We definitely didn't want to say goodbye to the filmic orchestral material, but there are more reasons for that…
"We really can't wait to release this album as it belongs in your hands, but, unfortunately, we all need to wait until the end of March.
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 is set for release on March 25 via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, Japan and Australia.

I love how they're already telling fans "hey the album isn't like the single, don't hate us yet." Yes, she wrote "for the people who liked it, we're afraid that it's really not revealing much of what's to come..." but I'm sure a lot of the responses were apathetic, at best.

They were pretty popular around the time of Mother Earth, nowadays I hear nothing about them anymore.
