About the Artist
Within Temptation's 2004 album 'The Silent Force' was the first record to feature Ruud Jolie on lead guitar. The powerful and beautiful vocals by Sharon Den Adel are full of passion and emotion and blending well with the orchestrations. The Silent Force's first single 'Stand My Ground' is a wonderful bombastic composition with impressive vocals and it stays true to the band's rocking sound. The up-tempo guitars and the melodic keyboards makes this a must have for everyone who loves symphonic and metal music. It stands as a masterful collection of songs, which still sounds fresh and versatile. The Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation was founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. After their first doom metal recording they were developing their music to a more accessible symphonic style, becoming known to the worldwide public. Tracklist: Side A: 1. Intro 2. See Who I Am 3. Jillian (I'd Give My Heart) 4. Stand My Ground 5. Pale 6. Forsaken. Side B: 1. Angels 2. Memories 3. Aquarius 4. It's The Fear 5. Somewhere. Also available on 180 gm vinyl: Enter / The Dance / Mother Earth

This album is a real grower and it could easily pass you by on the first couple of listens but stick with it and it will set a seed in your head. At the time of writing this I am alternating between this band and Delain on an iPod playlist - its just infectious stuff and well worth the purchase fee. Buy it and discover a very good if little known band who deserve to be much bigger.
My initial reaction is that it's a little lightweight - it's not as heavy as Nightwish & there's none of the contrasting Death Metal vocals that work so well for Epica. The Evanescence comparisons are justified, certainly in the vocals and overly clean guitar sound.
On the plus side, it's nicely produced, i applaud the band for using a real orchestra and three tracks have grabbed me; The instrumental intro which is really good, See Who I Am & Aquarius.
**I'll probably update this review in time as these are just my first impressions**
One thing for me though is i've yet to hear any female fronted Metal with vocal work as good as Nightwish's Oceanborn or Therion's albums. I love the more operatic approach over the style shown on The Silent Force. To be fair, Sharon Den Adel at least is way better than the mediocre Annette Olzon now plagueing Nightwish.
And yes, Sharon may well be THE hottest woman in Rock!!
