Within Temptation

Dutch symphonic metallers Within Temptation have set “The Unforgiving” as the title of their upcoming album, due in March 2011. The conceptual effort is said to be based on a comic-book series written by Steven O’Connell  and will feature characters and scenery by comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness, X-Men).

Regarding the album, the band issued the following statement on their official website:

Drummer Stephen van Haestregt left Within Temptation earlier this year to focus on his family life and to work as a studio technician.

2011 promises to be an interesting year for fans of female-fronted rock/metal bands with new albums by Nightwish, Delain, Sirenia, Evanescence and now Within Temptation set for release.
