Within Temptation’s New Single & Album

Dutch Symphonic Rock band Within Temptation, has released the first official single from their fifth studio album “The Unforgiving“. The new song titled “Faster“, is nothing like I’ve heard before. The song is catchy, well written, and definitely a fresh sound from an always evolving and creative band. Listen to the song below to hear for yourselves.

The Unforgiving” will be released on March 25, 2011. The album’s concept is based on a comic book series, written by Steven O’Connell (BloodRayne). Illustrations are done by Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, X-Men). Each song was written along with Steven’s narration, having their own unique style, and revolving around the protagonists of the comic.

Robert Westerholt, guitarist and backing vocals described the new album as being a departure from the band’s previous albums. He stated that the new single:

“is a song which surprised ourselves. It’s a very fresh new sound wrapped around the 80′ties heart and soul of the track. “Faster” reflects one of the many musical roots we have. Combined with the modern influences on our new album, it’s like the past and future created the present.”

The band stated on their official website, “The next milestone in our journey leading to  ”The Unforgiving” album release will be the world premiere of one of the movies featured in “The Unforgiving” film trailer. Mark the 31st of  January in your calendar, this is the day the door to “The Unforgiving” will open!”

One thought on “Within Temptation’s New Single & Album

  1. The Unforgiving is hands down my most anticipated release right now. I can’t WAIT for this album to come out! Faster is great. I love the repetition of the title in the verses of the song, it’s what really gets stuck in your had. That and that ” can’t live in a fairytale of lies” line! Within Temptation never fails to disappoint me with their music and this just seems like it’s going to be one awesome album!
