2014 release, the sixth studio album from the Dutch Symphonic Metal band. Hydra finds the band moving forward into a more earthy and modern direction while remaining fast, heavy and uniquely Within Temptation. The album contains guest appearances by Metalcore singer Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage), rapper Xzibit, classical-crossover/symphonic metal vocalist Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) and alternative rock singer Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum).
Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing including insert with lyrics. The Dance is an EP from the Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation. The EP consists of five tracks immersed in their dark and atmospheric sound. The beautiful vocal parts from Sharon are mixed in the aggressive guitar riffs and drum rolls. Sharon darkens her voice to match the heavy music. 'Another Day' is maybe the most dejecting song they ever recorded, but still with an upbringing sound in the vocal parts. From their doom and goth metal in their early years to their later symphonic music, Within Temptation gained recognition both national as international.
