Interview by Tarja Virmakari
Dutch Symphonic Rockers WITHIN TEMPTATION, formed in 1996, have recently released their 6th studio album “Hydra”, including 11 tracks and featuring several guests: metalcore singer Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage), rapper Xzibit, classical-crossover/symphonic metal vocalist Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) and alternative rock singer Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum). The first single, “Paradise (What About Us?)”, was released on September 27, 2013, and featured Tarja Turunen as guest vocalist. The second single, “Dangerous”, was released on December 20, in which Howard Jones provided the male vocals.
Just recently Tarja Virmakari had a chance to interview WITHIN TEMPTATION‘s fine Metal Lady vocalist, Sharon Den Adel (for Truemetal.it). The main topic was of course the latest effort “Hydra” and its guest appearances, but Sharon also spoke about the difficulties to break through, in the Netherlands for the first few years of their existence. Sharon also revealed the ultimate dream that WITHIN TEMPTATION still have for the future. To find out this and many more, join the conversation below.
