I think "Hydra" is my most favorite WT album yet, especially as a whole (it misses some flawless standouts like "Memories" or "Mother Earth" though) :oops:

Anyway, good they're back in the studio. Seems a bit late though, i thought a new album may be released soon-ish.

The album had some good songs but I agree, it's definitely one of their weaker albums. I'd love a hybrid between THOE and Silent Force
Yeah, I never liked Hydra, it disappointed me

I think that "Hydra" was excellent. All the guest appearances were special and they went for a very energetic and powerful sound but I have the feeling that they were able to link it with symohonic elemnts. Also, the ballads are amazing, especially "Edge of The World".

If I had to rank their albums, I think this would be my list:

#1 The Silent Force
#2 The Heart Of Everything
#3 Hydra
#4 Mother Earth
#5 The Unforgiving
#6 Enter

They updated social media and website to this, doesn't sounds too exciting if Sharon does a 'statement'. I would get excited if it says 'announcement', but 'statement' sounds serious

I am afraid of what's about to come as well.

Within Temptation is my favourite band and I want them to continue releasing music forever or at least some more years.

I am afraid that it's not a statement by WT but by Sharon alone.
Is she going to leave the band? Oo

Oh no, hopefully not the end of the band, but somehow that's what I expect :/ makes me especially sad cause I really did not like their last album, so not even a nice ending for me personally :(

On an entertainment TV show here they said the statement will only come on Wednesday :-? pretty confused.
A lot of rumors have been online
- Sharon and Robert divorcing/break-up
- Sharon going solo
- represent The Netherlands for ESC
- The band ending
etc.

It is pretty vague how they present is as a statement by Sharon :-?

That's the only positive ending we can be hoping for. The rest are really bad news :(

It is really cruel and I also don't get it, first leaving the fans in the dark for days and now we know it's Friday. I am still so confused about the wording 'statement' and only Sharon giving one, if this is the end of the band or something 'negative' Sharon related, I will be seriously pissed since they didn't had to let us wait that long for that :(

I am sure it's over. It was a nice time from 2003 to 2012 for me

No idea how accurate this is, but it looks like she's really going solo:

I mean I support creativity, but with the amount of things she has tried with WT, I wonder how 'different' it will be, unless she would try R&B or straight up tropical house inspired pop :lol:

I wouldn't be surprised if it's similar to WT's sound :lol:

Maybe it's just something in between as the band wants/needs (or whatever) a break.

I don't get it. Within Temptation have already started recording their upcoming album and now this? - Maybe the hiatus won't be that long? - Other members have also released solo stuff/side projects as well whilst being part of the band. As long as they don't split up and take a break for 2 up to 5 years, I'm fine with everything.

I guess, it's alright, it usually takes them up to 3 or 4 years to come up with a new studio album and Symphonic Metal bands do a lot of touring afterwards, etc.
A new album in Q1/2 2018 would be amazing!
