It’s taken the band ten years but Holland’s Within Temptation is finally getting some long-overdue exposure here in North America. Their fifth album, THE HEART OF EVERYTHING, is being released domestically in July on Roadrunner Records and the band also just landed a string of dates supporting Lacuna Coil through May and June.
Speaking with vocalist Sharon Den Adel prior Within Temptation’s show in Montreal on May 13th, I got her thoughts on the band’s first trip to our shores, “The Hottest Chicks In Metal” tour, comparisons to Evanescence and the influence of Celtic music on her band.
