We've only recorded two songs, and we have a lot of demos, which are very far, so we can finish them quite quickly. So we're just gonna start with that — we're gonna make those demos real songs, and eventually, next year, we're gonna release also a few songs again. Eventually there will be an album, but the album is not complete yet, so we have to start writing also some extra new songs to make the whole album complete.
The band's first album, Enterwas released inin which music critics defined the band as two heavy metal subgenres, gothic metal and doom metal   classifying the release as "gloomy, doomy, slow moving, atmospheric, symphonic gothic The Swan Song - Within Temptation - The Silent Force (CD.

Mother Earth The Silent Force But from an objective point of view the previous one was way more special and that's why I give it the same rating.
I still remember when I first listened to Within Temptation; it was my first year in college and up until that point I had never really been exposed to any kind of gothic metal. A friend who was pretty heavy into gothic metal introduced me to them along with a plethora of other gothic metal and related bands. Now that I think of it, the song was probably from Mother Earth. In any case, it immediately caught my attention and I decided to pursue other works of the band.
After getting a hold of their studio album discography, I sat down and gave each album a good listen. The issue of whether they sold out or not is another topic entirely. What sets this album apart for me is the vocals.
In every song, Sharon does a remarkable job of convincing the listener that the song is real. She inserts so much passion and emotion, the songs all sound authentic, while stepping up the energy on the faster songs. To me this is rarely achieved in music. To me, that means a lot, and what really attracts me to this album, and after listening to The Silent Force, Sharon is easily one of my favourite female vocalists in metal.
The vocals are so good they overshadow the mediocrity of the instruments. At least I do, anyway. A lot of the album is just the vocals and drums anyway, which is certainly a good thing. For the most part, I disagree, but there always exists some exceptions.
Within Temptation is one of those exceptions; the vocals actually contribute to the music of the album. Like the vocals, the lyrics are also quite enjoyable. Furthermore, they immediately come off as the stereotypical metalhead who thinks all metal is about death and Satan, which is of course wrong. This assumption may very well be wrong, but the assumption is not without merit. There is no reason why metal cannot be used to sing about love.
As was just stated, the lyrical themes of the album primarily surround love and loss. The elaborate melodies and compositions of the orchestrations make up for any missing guitars. The album is not perfect. There are a few downsides. As already mentioned, the mediocre instruments are there, but this minor flaw can be dismissed without any further thought.
There is one other accompanying disadvantage of this album: the excess amount of ballads and their placement. The first three tracks minus the little intro are high energy and fast paced. As the album progresses, the energy that was once being enjoyed is now lost among the slower songs.
Perhaps the placement of the songs was done like this on purpose, but I feel it takes away from the album; however, it is only a minor annoyance and can be disregarded when the album is viewed as a whole. Overall the album is a very enjoyable listen. I believe the impressive vocal performance of Sharon is what makes this album so great, and is why I continuously listen to it and do not become bored.
The shortcomings of the album are forgettable and can be tolerated when you hear Sharon sing. Based on the rather negative reviews of the new single, the new album is going to sound similar to this one, which makes me happy. Based on The Silent Force, I look forward to the release of the new album. People who live in Brazil, enjoy listening to heavy metal and have sensible hearing do admit: Sharon den Adel voice's is very, VERY similar to one of the aforementioned country's most popular singers, known by the name of Sandy.
Very high, "soft" and with an undeniable "poppy" quality attached to it. It seems the band has been tuned to what's new in metal and it's almost impossible not to make a comparison with "american popgoths" Evanescence. Although it's strong and heavy, it's also very catchy familiar, heh? When "Pale" begins, things get a little different.
This time, there's a celtic melody, an electronic beat and Sharon singing. I guess it would be right to label "Pale" as this CD's first ballad. Still the mixture of heaviness and popiness which lead bands such as Lacuna Coil to a stardom they had never known before. The next track, "Angels", is not different either. Although "The Silent Force" is kind of poppish, it looks like the band has finally found a suitable identity, which can be listened throughout the entire record. It's also lovely how Sharon den Adel manages to sing really high without going operatical, which definitely sets her apart from most women who sing in the gothic metal genre.
I could say this release is better than "Mother Earth", because it's much more coherent amongst itself. It's good fun and you can bang your head while listening to it, but if you're a die-hard metal fan who won't admit pop being mixed into metal, then DON'T buy nor download this CD, because you'll want to smash it onto your walls either the CD or your hard drive.
If you go in expecting the same heaviness as Within Temptation then you will be surprised. There are the same atmospheric keyboards but the rest of the instruments take a back seat completely and remain firmly in the background as the beautiful vocals of Sharon Den Adel take over. This is romantic gothic pop metal, Album). This song is an indication of what Within Temptation are all about!
Vocally stunning songs with catchy keyboard riffs. Again the subtle keyboards open this but soon step back as Adel comes in. Proving she can do both the more showstopper like tracks and the ballads. The UK edition however features two bonus demo tracks, which I was glad to pick up for the same price as the edition without this.
