"Sinad", the second single from "The Unforgiving", the fifth studio album from Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION, has been released as a special remix EP. The single features three alternate versions of "Sinad", which will also be available on iTunes on October 17.
* Benno de Goeij mixes piano, dramatic strings and energetic synths with the soothing but intense voice of WITHIN TEMPTATION singer Sharon den Adel.
* Hungarian duo Myon & Shane 54 hand in a remix of pure gold. Sharon's voice rides a warm progressive-house sound, crawling under your skin within no time.
* The third remix is a club mix made by Clashback.
You can listen to the remixes in the YouTube clips below.
WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist Robert Westerholt recently announced that he will step down from touring duties in order to focus on taking care of the three children he has with the band's lead singer, Sharon den Adel. His replacement on stage is Stefan Helleblad, who has been working with the band behind the scenes for a few years.
"The Unforgiving" sold around 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 50 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on March 29, the CD was produced by Daniel Gibson and is based on a comic book story written by script writer Steven O'Connell (BloodRayne, Dark 48). The band asked comic artist Romano Molenaar (Witchblade, Darkness, X-Men) to draw the characters and scenery of "The Unforgiving", which was made available via Sony Music in Continental Europe and Roadrunner Records in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, Japan and Australia.
