ADMINISTRATION - 10.11.2023
Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band formed in 1996 in Waddinxveen, the Netherlands, by guitarist Robert Westerholt and singer Sharon den Adel, also a couple in life. They were soon joined by keyboardist Martijn Spierenburg, drummer Ivar de Graaf, bassist Jeroen van Veen and guitarist Ruud Jolie.

In 1997, Within Temptation released their first album, entitled "Enter". The album was well received by critics and established the band's musical signature, blending guitar riffs, atmospheric keyboards and Sharon den Adel's haunting vocals.

The band's commercial success came with their second album, "Mother Earth", released in 2000. The album was a huge success in the Netherlands, reaching number two in the charts, and launched their international career. It was followed by a world tour, bringing Within Temptation to a wider audience.

Over the course of their career, Within Temptation has collaborated with many renowned artists, such as Keith Caputo (Life of Agony), Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) and Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach). The band has also won numerous awards and honors, including the MTV Europe Music Awards, the World Music Awards and the Edison Awards. Their music has touched millions of fans around the world and helped popularize the genre.

After "Mother Earth", Within Temptation released several successful albums, such as "The Silent Force" (2004), "The Heart of Everything" (2007) and "Hydra" (2014). Their music has evolved over the years, incorporating new elements such as choirs, more complex orchestrations and electronic influences.

Their latest album, released in 2023, "Bleed Out", takes the previous "Wireless" EP in its entirety and adds six new tracks, and is more modern and heavier, while retaining the band's characteristic style.
