Within Temptation Comments On New Album "The Unforgiving"

Dutch symphonic metal act Within Temptation has commented on its forthcoming studio album, titled "The Unforgiving" "The Unforgiving" is a concept album based on comic books by Steven O'Connell.

"On this album, we've taken a totally different approach. Each song on 'The Unforgiving' was written along Steven's narrative. The main characters of the comic are reflecting the characters of our songs. The concept pushed us and gave inspiration to come up with a new approach in our sound. It resulted in writing our best songs so far.

"We have been big comic fans since our childhood. With this album we felt the time was there to take a new step in our creative development, take it further and broaden our horizon. Next to the concept form of the album, the songs are more diverse than ever before. In addition, the music of the late '80s, that's when we started to read comic books, certainly has left a mark on our new sound."

"The Unforgiving" is set for release sometime in early 2011.
