An incredible clash of talents.

Asking Alexandria
have shared a new version of the 'Faded Out', one of the highlights of their 2021 album 'See What's On The Inside', and have been joined by a special guest. 

The song itself is a bludgeoning piece of classic hard rock, full of spiralling melodies, crunching riffs and plenty of seething attitudes. 

And that is met by Within Temptation's Sharon Den Adel, who brings her haunting and towering vocals to the party beautifully.

Guitarist Ben Bruce had this to say about it:

“'Faded Out' is just one of those songs with an infectious energy and groove! I remember it coming together in the studio and thinking "I can't wait to play this live.” Fast forward a couple of months and I'm being told that Sharon of Within Temptation wants to sing on the song with us, and the level of excitement and nostalgia running through my body was immeasurable! When I was 14 or 15 years old, I waited in line at Virgin Megastore to meet Within Temptation at a signing and I handed Sharon a demo of my band. Adding Sharon's vocals to the song and teaming up with Within Temptation is a huge honor for us and it also brings a whole new dimension to the song. I can't wait for the fans to hear this collaboration and I can't wait for it to be featured in The Retaliators movie!” 

And Sharon had this to add:

"We've been blasting metalcore playlists through our speakers to gain a bit of fresh inspiration for our side, and Asking Alexandria is amongst the top bands we have been spinning over the past years. Their songs are heavy and melodic at the same time, therefore it was a no-brainer when they asked us to join them on “Faded Out!” We are evenly honored to be a part of this amazing song and we hope everyone will love it as much as we do! Enjoy!”

Here it is:

And as Ben said, it's going to be on the soundtrack for the upcoming film 'The Retaliators'.

Here's the trailer:
