Within Temptation is a metal band from the Netherlands. The band was founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. Their music is variously described as symphonic metal and gothic metal, although in an interview, Sharon Den Adel said they fell into a symphonic rock genre.
Directly after the release of their first album Enter, the band became prominent in the underground scene. It would however take until 2001, when they became known by the general public, with the single Ice Queen from the album Mother Earth, which reached position 2 in the charts. Since then, the band won the Conamus export prijs four years in a row. Their next album The Silent Force immediately reached first position in the charts. Their latest album, the The Heart of Everything also reached this position immediately.
