Within Temptation Win Best Selling Dutch Artist

Within Temptation proudly accepted a World Music Award for “Best Selling Dutch Artist” at the World Music Awards in Los Angeles on August 31.

The band received the prestigious award for sales of almost 500,000 CDs of their critically acclaimed album "The Silent Force" in Continental Europe.

This World Music Award is another milestone in the bands international career. In 2005, Within Temptation has already received numerous industry awards at home including the Edison Award for Best National Band (the Dutch equivalent of the US Grammys & the UK Brits) and a TMF Award from MTV Benelux for Best Local Rock Band as well as the Dutch Music Export Award – twice.

"The Silent Force," originally released in some parts of Europe in November 2004, crashed into the Netherlands official chart at #1, and was certified gold a mere three weeks later. Further Top 5 positions followed in Germany (gold), Belgium (also gold), and Finland (also gold), with Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, France, and Norway all also placing the album high in the Top 30.

Last week "The Silent Force" was released in the UK in a special CD/DVD UK edition. Kerrang! rated it 4Ks, describing it as “a whole album of continually changing, gloriously colourful musical landscapes.” In October, releases on Roadrunner will follow in Australia and Japan.

Roadrunner Records is proud to announce the signing of critically acclaimed Dutch goth-metallers Within Temptation for the UK, Australia, and Japan.

Fronted by the nightingale-throated Sharon den Adel, the band is completed by Robert Westerholt (guitar), Jeroen Van Veen (bass), Stephen van Haestregt (drums), Martijn Spierenburg (keyboards), and Ruud Jolie (guitar).

“We are very happy that our new album is being released by Roadrunner in the U.K., Australia, and Japan,” say Sharon and Robert. “A lot of our fans from these countries send us messages requesting a local album release. We wanted to work with a label that understands our music and now we are definitely at the right place.”

Formed in 1996, Within Temptation has released three albums including the platinum album 'Mother Earth' - selling over 800,000 albums in their career to date.

A TMF Award (MTV Benelux's domestic award ceremony) followed.

Within Temptation are currently on the European festival circuit, appearing at Pinkpop, Werchter, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Sweden Rock, Ruisrock, Aerodome, Wacken, and Gurten.

COB, Hammerfall To Headline Bloodstock 2005 Fests

BLOODSTOCK 2005 will comprise 2 separate festivals. The brand new outdoor show BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR ( B-O-A ) will take place on June 24th-25th 2005 at Catton Hall, in the Midlands, with the annual BLOODSTOCK05 – UK Metalfest taking place indoors at the Assembly Rooms in Derby on 2nd-3rd September 2005.

With the indoor festival now having reached capacity within the current location, the next logical step was to find an additional location, and the decision to go outdoors was an easy choice to make as the UK does not have an outdoor Euro-style Metal festival along the lines of Wacken, Bang Your Head and Summer Breeze (DE), Gods of Metal (ITA), Sweden Rock (SWE), Graspop (B), Dynamo (N) and so many more. The current choice of venue, Catton Hall, offers a fantastic location within a rural setting, centrally located within the UK for all areas to reach easily, and yes, camping will be provided. Our initial capacity is for up to 8,000 with further growth at the site to accommodate 20,000 within a few more years. More...
