One of the most popular symphonic metal bands is returning to Russia after four long years!
On February 11, 2022, a grandiose concert of the Within Temptation band will take place in the capital's Music Media Dome club as a part of a large band's 25th anniversary tour.
The band founded in 1996 became prominent in the underground scene after the release of their first album, Enter, in 1997. And in 2001, Within Temptation became known to the general public with the single Ice Queen from the album Mother Earth, which eventually reached No. two in the Dutch charts. The next albums, The Silent Force (2004) and The Heart of Everything (2007), debuted at No. one in the Netherlands charts, hitting the Top 30 charts in almost all countries of the world and became the band's most commercially successful albums. In 2008, they released a live DVD/ CD, Black Symphony, recorded with the Metropole Orchestra. It was followed by an acoustic album, An Acoustic Night at the Theater, released on October 30, 2009.
The band's fifth album, The Unforgiving, was released on March 25. 2011. The tour in support of the new album was postponed from spring 2011 to autumn due to the pregnancy of the vocalist Sharon Den Adele. In 2013, the band released a cover album, The Q-music Sessions, followed by a punchy new album, Hydra, in February 2014, returning the group to the status of world-class symphonic metal superstars.
In 2018, Sharon created her independent solo project My Indigo, releasing an album of the same name in April in the style of indie pop and indie rock of the 80s, which was radically different from everything the vocalist had done before.
Returning to the studio in late 2018, the band began recording a new album, Resist, which was released in February 2019.
Within Temptation has been among the regular nominees and winners of various national, foreign and international awards throughout its history - in total, the band has 28 awards of various prestige levels, and they have been nominated for them 43 times.
On June 25, 2021, the band released a new single, Shed My Skin, in collaboration with the German metalcore band Annisokay. In a recent interview, Sharon confirmed that the band plans to release more new music in the coming months, stating, "We only recorded two songs, but we have a lot of demos we can finish pretty quickly. And if everything goes smoothly, the whole new album will be released next year".
The band is preparing a large-scale show using unique visual and special effects.
On February 11, fans will be able to enjoy a hurricane performance on the Moscow Music Media Dome stage!
