2011, On their first ever concept album (which is based on a comic), Within Temptation rediscover their love for their heroes of the 80s. Once again, the Gothic Metal combo succeeds in presenting an epic, powerful opus filled with fairy tale magic. After the sometimes very poppy THE HEART OF EVERYTHING album, the early fans can be relieved, because on their new album, THE UNFORGIVING, Within Temptation go one step backwards towards MOTHER EARTH and one step further into new regions. The album is heavier and enormously bombastic. Within Temptation did everything right and convince over the whole course of the album.
