Video footage of vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt of Dutch symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION talking about their forthcoming fifth studio album, "The Unforgiving", and their future plans can be viewed below (courtesy of Roadrunner Records).
"The Unforgiving" was produced by Daniel Gibson and is based on a comic book story written by script writer Steven O'Connell (BloodRayne, Dark 48). The band asked comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness, X-Men) to draw the characters and scenery of "The Unforgiving", which is set for release via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, Japan and Australia. The films are based on the comic storyline; the characters are impersonated by actors. Each film is followed by a band performance that, all together, form a dark and compelling tale of life, love, revenge, rage, and regret.
The first movie, titled "Mother Maiden", ties in with the band's first single and video for "Faster", introducing the main characters of the narrative.
Fans recently had the unique opportunity to secure a personal credit in the special edition of "The Unforgiving" by sharing the video for the new album track "Where Is The Edge" with their Facebook fans. The video for "Where Is The Edge" contains exclusive preview scenes of the upcoming movie "Me & Mr. Jones", directed by Oscar-winning Dutch director Paul Ruven. The movie is a thriller inspired by the disappearance of Natalee Holloway on Aruba, the island where also the movie itself has been secretly shot.
