Within Temptation is a Dutch rock/metal band. The band was founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and
guitarist Robert Westerholt. Their music is described as symphonic metal, gothic metal, although in an
interview, Den Adel said they fell into a symphonic rock genre with various influences, and in a later
interview with 3VOOR12, Sharon stated that "we consider ourselves more a symphonic rock band ... we are
in my opinion no gothic band".
After the release of their first album Enter, the band became prominent in the underground scene.
However it was not until 2001 that they became known to the general public, with the single "Ice Queen"
from the album Mother Earth, which reached #2 on the charts. Since then, the band won the Conamus
Exportprijs five years in a row. Their next album The Silent Force debuted at #1 on the Dutch charts,
as did their latest, The Heart of Everything. In 2008 they released a live DVD and CD, Black Symphony,
recorded with the Metropole Orchestra.
On August 11, 2009 Within Temptation announced that they would be releasing a live album consisting of
acoustic sets from their theatre tour, entitled An Acoustic Night At The Theatre.
Long-term partners Robert Westerholt (on guitar) and Sharon den Adel (Vocals) began the band in 1996,
after leaving the band The Circle. The Circle re-named themselves Voyage and released an album called
Embrace, including a song featuring Sharon den Adel. Soon after that release the band broke up.
After leaving The Circle, Sharon and Robert started Within Temptation, including new bandmembers Jeroen
van Veen on bass guitar, Michiel Papenhove on guitar, Martijn Westerholt at the keyboard and
(following a succession of short-lived drummers) Ivar de Graaf.
