After the big national success of Within Temptation, with their 2000-release “Mother Earth“, the Dutch rock band was ready to go worldwide. With their 2004-release “The Silent Force”, Within Temptation was ready to rock. With their new release, Within Temptation worked with new musicians, producers and with a true orchestra and choir.
This is the first album where Ruud Jolie joined the band on lead guitars. Brother and keyboard player of founder and guitarist Robert Westerholt, Martijn Westerholt, left the band due to illness. He got replaced by Martijn Spierenburg. Also a new drummer for the band got introduced, Stephen van Haestregt. However, he already joined the band back in 2002, during the “Mother Earth Tour”-era, to replace drummer Ivar de Graaf.
Back in 2018, we wrote about several Within Temptation records to be released on vinyl LP. It is pretty common these days, artists releasing their music on Vinyl LP, this kind of media made a strong comeback. Besides that, some artists even re-issue their album on limited and coloured discs. So did Within Temptation, with their releases for “The Dance“, “Enter” and “Mother Earth“.
Now their release of “The Silent Force” got confirmed and is available for pre-order on the official Within Temptation Store, several third party sellers will follow shortly. Do you live outside of the United Kingdom? We strongly recommend not to order via Music Glue, due to several delays in the past, slow shipping, also because of the high shipping rates.
More third party sellers will be added as soon as pre-order starts.
