Within Temptation – Let Us Burn – Elements & Hydra Live in Concert

Within Temptation’s career sure feels like an ethereal rollercoaster that began quietly with the understated gothic tinged album “Enter”. Now, we can safely say that the hard working Dutch band fronted by hyper talented vocalist Sharon den Adel has become one of the most important presences in the symphonic metal scene. Therefore, a majestic live album is more than appropriate to celebrate such outstanding well deserved success. Much has changed in terms of music style as Within Temptation evolved through the years, but the massive DVD/Blu-ray/2CD “Let Us Burn – Elements & Hydra Live in Concert” contains a highly satisfying collection of oldies and newer material that will appeal to all the fans. The “Elements” show recorded at Sportpaleis in Antwerp is a very significant one because it celebrated the 15th anniversary of the band. On this concert you will find mesmerizing classics such as “The Dance”, the iconic anthems “Mother Earth” and “Ice Queen” and the super energetic “Faster”.
The “Hydra” concert was recorded at Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall and features a lovely acoustic version of “Sinéad”, the powerful hit “And We Run” famous for the guest rap vocals by American hip-hop legend Xzibit, the famous “What Have You Done” featuring the memorable duet with Keith Caputo and the beloved “Paradise (What About Us?)” featuring the most elegant duet with symphonic metal siren Tarja Turunen.
With over 170 minutes of live music excellently performed, “Let Us Burn” is a must have for Within Temptation’s faithful and ever-growing fanbase.
