Within Temptation vocalist Sharon Den Adel has posted the following statement online, in regards to the band's forthcoming studio 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.
"Now here's the good news: to endure the waiting, soon we'll release 'The Unforgiving' video trailer containing parts of different songs, the music videos and… (more about this third ingredient later)."
