Within Temptation - Reveal New Album's First Details

Dutch symphonic group Within Temptation just revealed that they will release their new album Resist in December, more specifically December 14th, via Spinefarm Records, following months of turmoil and uncertainty within the band. The label has just shared the news about the follow-up to 2014's Hydra. Prior to the album's release, the band will kick off a European tour.

Speaking about Within Temptation's seventh album, vocalist Sharon Den Adel told Metal Hammer magazine that the band have taken inspiration from modern music, but given it a "dark" face.

"Sometimes it feels that today's pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like then roughen the whole thing up as much as we could, allowing us to shape a new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we've ever created before. Resist is our new take on metal; our way of giving a fresh lease of life to the rebellious edge of modern music."

These guys try too hard, nothing coming out of this band has felt natural since Silent Force.

Each new album that they release just kill a little more of the child inside me. Make it stop!

Maybe WT are being forced to make new albums and the new album name is a secret message to everyone regarding the purchase of it when it releases.

Say what you will about their recent material...

...I'm still interested in this.

It starts talking about today's pop music and then ends with "...heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we've ever created before"

I want to believe the last part, but the fact that they keep bringing pop into the equation keeps me skeptic.

The Silent Force and The Unforgiving were good, but the rest has been dull. Spin off band Delain overtook them very quickly.

Well... not really what I was hoping to hear but we'll see. It's strange though. It sounds like they just made something up due to a lack of inspiration. Taking sounds from the radio and "roughening" them up, really? Sounds like a cover album more than a musical effort.

Here's hopin'. Not expecting much.

The new single is very VERy generic and boring, I really think they straight up lost their way after Silent Force

I liked Hydra, so here's hoping the new album is good.
