I've been looking through all sorts of the more Gothic, melodic metal type genre that I recently discovered. I stumbled upon Within Temptation one day and I've been hooked on the style ever since. Only problem is that it is hard to find bands like this with what I would personally consider good lyrics. I'm more biased toward the more positive well written lyrics. This band seems to have it all, awesome guitar riffs, no lack of musical talent. I love the melody of the piano in the background of the heavy double bass style riffs.
One critique I do have, although, I dont believe that the singer is using her wonderful vocals to their fullest potential. She has a lovely voice, it just seems that she lacks the emotion that could very well put her over the top. But all that aside, awesome album, and I really hope to see more releases from this band in the future.
