  • Within Temptation - The Unforgiving



    We’re really excited to be able to finally announce the title of our new album.

    Recently we’ve started giving clues on the website about our concept album. As you might have noticed our concept album is going to be based on a comic book series, written by Steven O’Connell (BloodRayne & Dark 48). We’ve asked comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness and X-men) to draw the characters and scenery.

    The new album and comic will be titled: “The Unforgiving”.

    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 divers than ever before. In addition, the music of the late 80ies, that’s when we started to read comic books, certainly has left a mark on our new sound.

    The album is set for release in March 2011, but our loyal visitors knew this already

    In our first WT TV update we’ll be telling more about the new concept album and comic. So check back with us soon for our first WT TV update.

        Don't like the title at all. It's not suprising, it does not shock, make people courios. Hope the music will be good.

              Wow, they actually look pretty casual! I'm going to guess from the 'Acoustic Night At The Theatre' album that they're going for a more relaxed, authentic and less dramatic sound, which I don't know whether to be excited or disappointed for.

              Ah well, I've never disliked any of their music so I'm looking forward to what they'll come up with!

                    Where Is The Edge

                    It’s time for us to reveal the first song off of “The Unforgiving”: “Where Is The Edge”.

                    The first single of “The Unforgiving” will be released in January 2011, but we wanted to give you a preview of our new album. We have just launched “Where Is The Edge” with a video featuring exclusive preview scenes of the upcoming movie “Me & Mr Jones”.

                    Together with this brand new song we’re starting a very cool item on our Facebook page. Through a Facebook plug-in, you can share the video of “Where Is The Edge” on your Facebook profile and we register your name to be included in the packaging of the special edition of “The Unforgiving”!

                    Starting today, the plug-in will be available under the title of “Unforgiving” on this page.
                    The duration of this campaign will depend on the response of the Facebook fans, so make sure to use this plug-in as soon as possible.

                    Obviously you need to ‘like’ our Facebook fan page before you have access to this plug-in!

                    ENJOY!

                      Hmmmm, I'm not impressed. It's very samey and safe, both lyrically and musically, just like 'What Have You Done?' was. I do like it but I hope there's better material on the album. :-?

                        That made me think of Amy Winehouse, which led to a weirder thought:

                                              the song featured in the trailer is "In The Middle Of The Night" right?

                                              it sounds like movie music
                                              I need a brand new single like NOW and not just trailers etc.
