RockmusicRaider Review - Within Temptation - The Heart of Everything - Album CoverThe Heart of Everything is the first Within Temptation record I ever listened to and it hooked me right away. The slightly subdued symphonic Gothic Metal sound and diversity of the tracks immediately got my full attention. Very dark, brooding sections changing with light and airy stuff coming right out of some sphere, you name it. Sometimes this sounds like some computer game soundtrack of sorts. Like in somewhat overdone, if you get my drift.

The Dutch band Within Temptation (I could not believe they were from the lowlands at that time..) created a worthy successor to
The Silent Force, which in itself is superb. I would however not necessarily call it better, but different enough to be very good as a standalone.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
