Within Temptation Announce New Album 'Resist', Share Lead Single The Reckoning

Friday, 14 September 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Within Temptation have announced the release of their seventh studio album, 'Resist'.

The Dutch symphonic metal band will put out the follow-up to 2014's 'Hydra' on December 14, marking their first release via Spinefarm Records, inking a global deal with Universal Music Germany.

Head below to check out lead single, The Reckoning featuring Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, plus the album's cover art. Vocalist Sharon Den Adel discussed the band's new vision with Metal Hammer, who broke the news, revealing that the album is influenced by modern music but given a "rebellious edge". She said:

"Sometimes it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like then roughen the whole thing up as much as we could, allowing us to shape a new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. Resist is our new take on metal; our way of giving a fresh lease of life to the rebellious edge of modern music."

The band will support the release with UK and European tour dates throughout the autumn and into winter, including stops in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and London, where they will play the O2 Academy Brixton on November 13. Tickets are on sale now.

Clutch - Book of Bad Decisions (Album Review)
Fri 07 Sep 2018
Despite being poster boys for gritty guitar licks, quirky lyrics and bluesy, boozy funk-rock, Clutch have never achieved the mainstream attention that their self-sustaining march over the years should merit. Even though 2015’s superb ‘Psychic Warfare’ broke them through to an extent, there remains a boatload of charm in the Maryland groovelords’ way of modestly churning out one outstanding record after another. The gloriously titled ‘Book of Bad Decisions’ doesn’t buck that trend.
Alice in Chains - Rainier Fog (Album Review)
Thu 06 Sep 2018
Named after an ominous volcano near Seattle, while acting as a tribute to the music scene that shot them to prominence in the early 1990s, ‘Rainier Fog’ is Alice In Chains’ third record since reforming after the death of frontman Layne Staley in 2002. Erupting with flavours old and new, it’s a classy effort that demonstrates exactly what master craftsmanship looks like. So why is it difficult to shake the feeling something’s missing?
