Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. They have always been classified by critics as gothic metal, although the “gothic” influence varies with each album. Their most prominent and well-known sound is described as symphonic metal, although their earlier material, was mostly gothic metal. Their most recent full-length album “Resist” was inspired by modern pop music and approaches a more futuristic style while not discarding the band’s original symphonic metal roots.
To this date (February 2nd, 2019), Within Temptation has released seven studio albums, three live DVDs, five extended plays and one compilation album.
