The romance and the mystery have returned to metal with the sixth studio album from Dutch symphonic metal legends Within Temptation – Hydra.
Produced by Daniel Gibson, Hydra covers a wide range of musical styles and lyrical themes and joins a varied catalogue of now classic albums like The Silent Force, The Heart of Everything and The Unforgiving.
Says guitarist and songwriter Robert Westerholt. " 'Hydra' is a perfect title for our new album, because like the monster itself, the record represents the many different sides of our music…it's the most powerful album we've ever made, and it has some amazing and totally unexpected collaborations. We can't wait for you to hear it!"
On Hydra Within Temptation have invited some noteworthy guests to help bring their many heads to life, embodied most powerfully on first single Paradise (What About Us?) a collaboration with Finnish metal diva Tarja Turunen (ex Nightwish), creating a perfect storm for symphonic metal fans with two of the all-time greats of the genre working together for the first time.
You want to hear unconventional? Say hello to American hip-hop legend Xzibit, who delivers a rap on the song 'And We Run'. Another track on Hydra - 'Dangerous' - was recorded with the former Killswitch Engage singer Howard Jones, "I always loved Howard's voice," Says lead vocalist Sharon den Adel. "He makes the song even heavier than it already is."
