Within Temptation - The Unforgiving

Within Temptation - The Unforgiving Cover

Comic book capers from the Danes on their fifth album...

A concept album? Based on a comic book? Why not paint a massive target on the back of an anorak whilst you’re at it? Euro-metal may have always been a denim jacket’s hem away from populist cultural obsolescence, but those that know better can join the Danes as they embellish their usual symphonic proclivities with various, less austere moments. The dark-hued, hard rocking glory of ‘Sinéad’ and the Evanescence-bothering theatrics of ‘A Demon’s Fate’ should draw Within Temptation a wider audience, but it’s the ferocious guitar / keyboard attack of the blazing ‘In The Middle Of The Night’ that might coax most bullet belts out of retirement.

15 Photos From Download Festival Of Bands Pointing At Things

We took a LOT of photos over the Download Festival 2014 weekend. As it turns out, a lot of those photos had one thing in common. For us, Download 2014 will go down at the year that the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Skindred, Blessthefall, Twenty One Pilots and more had themselves a jolly good point.
