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.
