Within Temptation will release their seventh album, “Resist,” on December 14th via Spinefarm Records/Universal Music. You can watch a lyric video for the song “Raise Your Banner”, featuring In Flames vocalist Anders Fridén, below.
“Resist” marks a departure from the Within Temptation’s past. The record is armed with 10 anthemic tracks, driven by grand melodies and dark hooks. It brings a futuristic take on metal to the table – both instrumentally and thematically.
“Resist is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for Resist, Within Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore,” the band stated.
“With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face – a very dark one,” said singer Sharon den Adel. “Sometimes, it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like and roughen it up as much as we could, resulting in a surprisingly new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. Resist is our take on metal in a new way: to give modern music its rebellious edge.”
