What have you done? What have you done guys to the beautiful music that you used to plays in the past? I'm still trying to find a good and honest answer but the only one that I found is market, marketing, money, whatever… "The Silent Force" was already a bit deceiving, at least at the first listening because with time (even if I will ever say that the little electronic beats there and there were a terrible mistake) it was ok and some of the songs were more than alright. But even if we have some better things (no more stupid beats) on "The Heart Of Everything", I'm still disappointed, the new album of Within Temptation is just an average album of Pop Metal perfectly build for MTV…

Behold Within Temptation, probably one of most popular symphonic metal bands out there. After Mother Earth was released many fans were surprised that the band changed the style of their music. But the album itself was one of the best of that year so its success basically covered up the fact that this band was heading towards a different pathway in metal (gothic/doom metal to symphonic/gothic metal). Then The Silent Force was released in 2004 and we all now knew that Within Temptation was not coming back to their original style for now. But behold their 4th studio album The Heart Of Everything and boy there were a lot of fans who were worried that this band was done (if they were not satisfied about (The Silent Force being more symphonic metal/rock).

After the miraculous fame of The Silent Force and the criticism that was attach to it, fans of the symphonic/gothic metal act Within Temptation didn't know what they could exactly expect from them. Leaving the common gothic/doom metal setting many bands were approaching in those day for a more orchestral theme, they created The Silent Force. Also if you haven't listened to the The Silent Force it was basically a show off or a brag on mezzo soprano powerhouse Sharon Den Adel. The Silent Force was not all dandy and perfect. But it did prove that Within Temptation was not just another passing by symphonic metal band. They were up there next to bands like Therion and Nightwish.

  Not their best, but not so bad either. I hope their next album would be better.
What Have You Done sounds like Evanescence, I don't like it.
My fave tracks are: Our Solemn Hour, The Howling, Hand Of Sorrow and The Cross.

  Who are you people kidding!? This album is AMAZING.
I created an account here just to talk about this!

This album may be different than their earliest albums, but this is FAR from 'metal pop'.
'What Have You Done' and 'The Cross' irritated me, but for the most part, this album contains deep, evocative sound that molded my taste in music.

So stop damning it because of its difference, and listen to it as a new sound!

Rating: 9 I like this album, in all honesty. Sure, it's not WT's best. But I still think it's good.

.....father liked it (NOTE: they're not metal fans at all)...


The last albums my dad has listen to something was Machine Head's Unto The Locust and Kreator's Phantom and he liked that stuff. Other than that, he keeps playing his old CD's( Sabbath, Maiden and Death).

Metal? Just because it isn't apparently hard as "Enter" , heavy metal or power metal isn't hard like Death but we still consider bands like Dragonforce and Helloween metal. WT is metal and rock as well, but overall they are really never considered a rock or pop band. A metal band.
