Within Temptation Join Forces With In Flames
Titans of symphonic metal Within Temptation formed formed in the Netherlands in 1996, under the creative direction on on-stage and off-stage long term partners Sharon den Adel (soaring vocals) and Robert Westerholt (flaming licks). Their breakthrough came just four years later with the release of smash hit single 'Ice Queen', which ruled the Dutch and Belgian charts, and paved the way for an international success. Nineteen years and seven albums later, the band are gearing up and joining forces with Swedish heavy metal stalwarts In Flames for a whirlwind US tour to celebrate the release of their latest offering Resist.
Much like the driving gothic-tinged metal of their onstage friends Within Temptation, In Flames purvey a melodic brand of heaviness with added Swedish thunder and are widely regarded as forerunners of the Swedish Death Metal movement. With an almost punk rock spirit, they fuse neo-classical guitar solos, intricate fretwork and booming drums with an experimental progressive sound, resulting in powerful anthems that regularly rock the rafters at their live concerts. Wear some comfortable shoes - there's bound two be a stormy moshpit or two at this infernal co-headline show.
