Within Temptation – Hydra (2014) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Within Temptation - Hydra - Album CoverWell, who would have thought that! From great beginnings, starting with Enter right up to The Heart of Everything, we have seen superb work from Within Temptation. Yet, somehow their performance started to decline with the The Unforgiving. And unfortunately their 2014 record Hydra did not stop this decline.

Their tune is not necessarily bad, but nothing that really rocked me out of my chair. It is as if they descended into the mean mainstream, where ratings dwell. Couple this with a glittery on-stage performance and there you have your venue covered. Right? And I daresay, Within Temptation got their marketing strategy straight for sure. 
Hydra starts with a fair (not more) Let Us Burn.
Got hooked? Raid this some more...
