Like the stripped down Sinead is 100% Within Temptation, even if the album version tried something different with its approach.

That's not a bad thing imo!

When is this from? :D

2017 according to my googling

I love how she makes a devils horns sign for a split second before she realizes she's not at a metal show this time :D

Yeah it's from 2017, but the professionally shot video of the performance was uploaded just a few days ago.

@NighttimeBird Right? :P And her face when the dancers surround her and start dancing. :P

I can't believe this discussion went on for as long as it did. It really is so important... but in the Within Temptation thread, really?

I also can't believe no one acknowledged yet that Within Temptation and Evanescence will co-headline a one-off concert this Fall.

 

This is really great news for both fanbases! And I wish the two ladies could share the stage together. Can totally imagine Amy joining WT on a song like Supernova or The Reckoning. But I guess it would depend on which band is heading the bill.

Regarding Resist, I can only say that this piece is the best one since The Heart of Everything, it's a super mature and solid work in my opinion. Hydra has its moments but it got lost throughout the way, and I never was too fond on The Unforgiving. Not to mention I always find myself listening to Endless War, Mad World or Supernova, they're just so cohesive. And I like how the band made one song kind of speak to each other. Hope they'll put out a DVD of this current tour.

10 years later, it happened once again. Too obvious, but enjoyable as the first time :)

Totally in love with Resist, it's definitely been one of my most played stuff on spotify this year. Wish they would stop relying so much in older albums when touring though, with this album they have great material to make a cool setlist

I think Within Temptation are good at striking a balance between old and new songs for setlists. At Graspop, they played 5 songs from Resist, so basically half the album. That's really good. Enough to satisfy those who love Resist, but at the same time leaves room for enough old songs.
