Spellborn’s Coop Band publishes Live-DVD
Exclusive record of live concert by goth rock band Within Temptation
News about Spellborn’s cooperation band Within Temptation. The world-famous gothic-rock band is publishing a monumental concert recording under the name "Black Symphony" on September 19th as double-CD and double-DVD. Prior to the publication, the Dutch metal rockers will release the single "Forgiven" on September 12th as outcoupling in a 5-track premium edition. The single-pack will contain the previously unreleased live bonus tracks "Hand Of Sorrow" and "The Heart Of Everything" as well as a live version of the Spellborn video song "The Howling" in addition to the title track.
Within Temptation recorded the Live-DVD on February 7th 2008 during their giant show with the Metropole Orchestra of 60 concert musicians and a classic choir of 20 singers in the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam. The band around front woman Sharon den Adel celebrated the event with precision fireworks and a gigantic light show in front of 10,000 enthusiastic fans from all over the world. These and several high-profile duets with Keith Caputo of Life of Agony and Anneke van Griesbergen (ex. The Gathering) induced the British Kerrang! Magazine to call it “the best show on earth". In addition to the concert recordings, the live DVD includes an abundance of bonus content such as detailed "Behind the Scenes" material and a 10-day countdown documentary of the preparatory phase.
Accompanying the launch of the fantasy online roleplaying game The Chronicles of Spellborn, the Dutch developer and publisher Frogster Interactive will revive their cooperation with Within Temptation. The partners have planned several online activities for fans, along with the launch of the new Spellborn website in September. Moreover, an information leaflet of the band will be integrated in the Spellborn box version at launch. The trailer for the current DVD "Black Symphony" was already shown on the Spellborn booth at the Games Convention two weeks ago. It is available as streaming video on www.within-temptation.com and on YouTube: http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=yCxb8FwhzK8. The joint Spellborn video "The Howling" is also still accessible after a short registration on www.the-howling.com.
