OK so I was wondering what is your favourite band and why you like them.
Ill go first since I started this post.
Within Temptation is a Dutch metal/rock band that was formed by Sharon den Adel (favourite singer) and Robert Westerholt back in 1996, sadly however I only started listening to them earlier this year.
Their type of music is classed as symphonic rock and even tho some people tend to class them as a ďGothĒ band I myself donít.
Why I Like Their Music?
There are two main reasons why I like Within Temptation,
Number 1. Sharon den Adel has an absolutely amazing voice and no matter how many times I listen to her I just canít get enough.
Number2. The lyrics of their songs, I always am able to relate to their songs in one way or another.
Within Temptation has released a total of 6 albums so far , four of those being studio albums and two being live albums.
Their two live albums are titled, Black Symphony (2008) and An Acoustic Night at the Theatre (2009). I canít comment on these two albums mostly because I havenít had the chance to listen to them yet.
The four studio albums are as follows,
Enter  (I havenít listened to this album simply because I canít find it in the shops)
Mother Earth  Ė This album has a more of a medieval theme to the music and lyrics. Mother Earth was only released in Europe. Recommended songs to listen to are Mother Earth, Dark Wings and A Never Ending Story
The Silent Force  Ė More of a general rock/metal theme to this one and is my personal favourite. Worldwide release and sadly did not enter the Australian music charts. Recommended songs Angels, Memories, Destroyed (demo version) and Julian ( Iíd give my heart)
The Heart of Everything  - Standard rock/metal theme but still has a bit of a medieval theme to the lyrics. Worldwide release and entered the Australian album charts at number 88. Recommended songs All I need, Forgiven and The cross.
It has also been reported that another album will be released this year as well.
Also just a little bit of FYI.. In 2008 Sharon Den Adel also featured alongside Armin van Buuren in the song In and Out of Love this was a dance song (which also had a techno remix that I quite enjoy as well) points out that she is easily adaptable with her singing abilities.
