The concept album The Unforgiving is the fifth studio record by Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation. Sharon
den Adel makes full use of her vocal style and 3+ octave range, as the
band is bringing back the symphonic music of the '80s. The guitars are
brought to the front and memorable riffs are backed by a mix of
symphonic and electronic keyboards. Their songwriting skills increased
during the years, as you can hear in the lyrics Sharon is singing about
murder, getting a second chance in life and feeling guilty. The album
charted all over the world (#50 in the Billboard 200, #23 in the UK
Album Chart, and #2 in the Dutch Album chart). This is definitely one of
Within Temptation's best and most versatile albums.
