It’s not every day that you get to interview one of metal’s leading frontwomen. And to think that Live-Metal.net has now had the chance to interview Within Temptation’s Sharon den Adel twice is simply amazing. Her beauty is unmatched and her voice is one of the most powerful and emotional in the music world. The band has had great success overseas, and now they have set their sites on America. The fans are making a strong statement, as the release of their latest album, The Heart of Everything, saw a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Heatseekers.
In May 2007, Live-Metal.net conducted its first interview with Sharon. At that time, Within Temptation was opening for Lacuna Coil on the Hottest Chicks in Metal tour and giving the headliners a run for their money every night. Now, in September 2007, Within Temptation has returned to the United States for their first headlining tour here. During the tour’s stop at the Recher Theatre in Towson Md, Jeff Maki and Jason Price sat down with the “ice queen” of Within Temptation before the show for a lengthy and insightful interview. Sharon discussed the headlining tour, the widespread appeal of Within Temptation’s music, the range of emotions she goes through onstage and gave us some early information on future releases.
