WITHIN TEMPTATION: 'Mother Earth', 'The Silent Force' To Receive U.S. Release In August

Dutch symphonic, female-fronted metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION will have their "Mother Earth" (2001) and "The Silent Force" (2004) albums released in the U.S. for the first time on August 5 via Roadrunner Records.

WITHIN TEMPTATION will release a new DVD in September featuring the band's February 7, 2008 performance at the Black Symphony event at Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Black Symphony was a unique concert featuring WITHIN TEMPTATION backed by the 60-piece Metropole Orchestra and a 35-voice classical choir in a spectacular stage setting, backed by Europe's largest video screen (400 sqm) and spiced-up by stunning pyrotechnic and light displays. Support at the gig came from LIFE OF AGONY frontman Keith Caputo, who also joined the headliners for a rendition of the song "What Have You Done?"

Fan-filmed video footage from the Black Symphony concert can be viewed below.
