Editorial Reviews

Black Symphony was a unique concert at Rotterdam's Ahoy Arena on February 7, 2008 sold out months in advance. Within Temptation performed to 10,000 fans with the 60 piece Metropole Orchestra and a 20 voice classical choir, as well as on stage stilt performers, costume changes, and an array of stunning pyrotechnic and lighting effects.

As a fan of Within Temptation, I have been waiting for this DVD to come out since they announced the show back in February and now it's finally here. This dvd is brilliant, sure it's not the same as the European release but the main concert is what's important here and it's fantastic. There are no other words to describe the vocals of Sharon den Adel combined with a live orchestra. Within Temptation was made for something like this and I love the new arrangements to some of the songs including "Mother Earth", "Stand My Ground", and "Angels". Adding the pyros, video screens, lights, dancers, and sounds made this one of the best live performances ever captured on film.

This version of Black Symphony contains a cd with 13 live songs and a DVD with the full 22 song concert and a few special features:

Backstage report- a 13 minute interview with the band, crowd, and orchestra before and after the show.

Documentary - runs for about 23 minutes and it features the band discussing a little about their career with rehearsal footage from black symphony.

Countdown - 8 minute overview from the day of the show.

For anyone that wants to know the technical stuff, the show is shot in widescreen and contains 2.0/5.1/DTS sound.

Every fan of Within Temptation must pick this up! You won't regret it.

I couldn't agree more with the three reviews already listed on here. They all hit the nail on the head. The recording sounds just as clear as a studio album and the performance itself is a feast for the eyes. The orchestra, choir, guest performers and wild stage show related stuff (I don't want to spoil it) are just amazing.

This is one of the better looking/sounding concert DVDs out and I have a bunch to compare it to. The extra features are short in nature, but fun to watch.

I do wish the US version was available on Blu-ray like the one in Europe, but you get the full 22 song concert on DVD and 13 songs on the CD for under $20.00. You can't pass on this deal.

All in all, this is a must have for fans of Within Temptation. Buy it already!

I recieved my long awaited copy of Within Temptation's "Black Symphony" today. This concert is simply fantastic! WT, The Pa'dam Choir, and the Metropole Orchestra provide a feast for the senses the likes of which I've never experienced. You may think I'm exaggerating, but I assure you I am not. If this live DVD doesn't get them world wide acclaim, then nothing will. Sharon den Adel is absolutely stunning and an unbelievable talent. Her voice absolutely soars to incredible registers and is unwaivering over the two hour event. The rest of the band forms a very cohesive unit and their playing is flawless as always. The Metropole Orchestra and Pa'dam Choir make this an even more spectacular event. Nothing can compare to having them live on stage with the band. Recordings would just not have been the same. I won't describe the entire concert here. I don't want to ruin it for anyone. I will say I highly recommend this CD/DVD to everyone. Five stars hands down. Go out and get it!!

If you have never had the privelidge of seeing the Silent Force Tour on DVD (originally released in PAL a few years back & now just released in NTSC format) you will finally get the chance to see on of the BEST bands in the genere and wow how they have evolved since then. WT pulls out all the stops for this unbelievablly stunning performance. On stage they look so excited and enjoying this perofrmace so much you can feel it. The sound and picture are crystal clear shot in HD and the whole package is a top notch effort. All the classics are here and they open the show with a Jaw dropping rendition of Jillian- they then power thru their amazing cataloge while the symphony orchestra & choir accompaines them to an amazing effect. They have video screens, pyro, stilt walkers and various other FX to make this on extrodinary evening of music and a MUST have DVD. Period. Do not miss The Black Symphony it one show you will never forget and want to watch over & over again.

I typically order many things through Amazon but I was disappointed with this offering because there appears to be several versions available. I realize that Amazon is offering the US release, which may not be their fault, but the European versions include so much more. I am not trying to deter money away from Amazon with this post and who knows, maybe Amazon will offer these additional import versions in the near future.

Anyway, there is a Blu-Ray version available along with a DVD (PAL). There is also a (2) DVD version which maybe PAL which includes a (2) audio CD version as well, which is the entire concert and not selected songs from the concert like the US version on only (1) Audio CD.

My 3 Star rating is based only what version the US is getting and not on the actual content/concert itself which I expect to be fantastic. **UPDATE** Changed my 3 Star rating to 5 Star due to Blu-ray version.

I ordered the Blu-Ray version and (2) DVD and (2) CD version directly from the Within Temptaion site at [...] They are rather pricey in comparison though to the Amazon US version. The Blu-Ray was around $32.50 while the (2) DVD, (2) CD version was around $39. Shipping on top of that was another $25. Ouch! There may also be some concern whether or not the Blu-Ray is Region specific and whether or not it is going to play in a US PS3 or a US Blu-Ray player. There is no mention on the Within Temptation site whether or not the Blu-Ray is Region Specific plus they do ship to the US. I do know that PAL DVD's will play in a XBox 360 as I have Within Temptation PAL DVD's that play just fine. In the end, I just wanted the Blu-Ray and the (2) CD's of the entire concert plus the extra DVD's include an additional concert that was filmed in 2007.
