Within Temptation - Black Symphony LIVE DVD

Within Temptation's latest release is the double album DVD 'BLACK SYMPHONY' which is the recording of the Unique concert at the Ahoy Arena in February of 2008 where the band performed with the 60 piece Metropole Orchestra as well as a twenty piece classical choir with the intention of creating a sound that will outdo the studio representations of the bands multi layered songs and with a ten thousand audience the atmosphere was so special it is one that you must share.

We have been given a sample track to check out which is the excellent song 'What Have You Done' it was great on the last studio album release 'The Heart Of Everything' which we also reviewed, and the song has great atmosphere on this live recording as well.

Kerrang did a multi page spread in their magazine of the concert and rated it as the bast show on Earth and who are we to dispute. Within Temptation have been building a massive reputation over the years with their timeless songs and wonderful layered melodies and now this has all been brought together under one roof in a gig of a lifetime. The full DVD package comes with all 23 DVD songs AND a live CD to so you can take it with you in the car, so never again will you be without listening to Sharons's beautiful voice.

Renowned for their spectacular live shows, now fans everywhere will have the chance to watch one of Within Temptation’s most astounding performances yet with the release of a brand new double-DVD and double CD - ‘Black Symphony’. The band, who have sold over 100,000 albums in the UK, now unleash footage of their most ambitious staging to date, Black Symphony was a unique concert at Rotterdam’s Ahoy Arena on February 7, 2008. Sold out months in advance, Within Temptation performed to 10,000 fans with the 60-piece Metropole Orchestra and a 20-voice classical choir, as well as on-stage stilt performers, costume changes and an array of stunning pyrotechnic and lighting effects.
