WITHIN TEMPTATION Posts Third “Hydra” Tour Diary

Saturday, 29th March 2014

Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION have uploaded the third episode in the Hydra tour video diary, which can be viewed below.

In the third episode of the diary you get a real look into the production behind the scenes. You get to see part of the crew build up in Prague and Budapest and Robert pays a visit to see dragons from Prague. Meanwhile, Sharon goes nuts over a clothing sale and winds down in a beautiful Hungarian spa. A birthday, a close call on stage, a new hairstyle, and a special request for you from Sharon.

Hydra was released in North America on February 4 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the new U.S. partnership between Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger and former Roadrunner Records A&R chief Monte Conner. The album was made available in several luxury formats. The cover artwork was created by Romano Molenaar (“X-Men”, “Batman”, “The Unforgiving”).

The digital premium album, complete with digi-booklet, was made available on iTunes and includes 18 audio tracks and a music video. The digital premium album features bonus “Evolution Versions” of four new songs, which contain audio commentary from guitarist Robert Westerholt and singer Sharon Den Adel and give you unique access to the development of the songs, their lyrical inspiration and the sound of the initial demos and vocals.
